From the “Damn, that’s gotta hurt” department: AZ-gov (R) – Thomas outpolling Ducey

From Public Policy Polling (emphasis added) –

Moving on to the Governor’s race for this year, it looks pretty wide open for both the Republican primary and the general election. The leader for the GOP nomination is ‘undecided’ at 34%. 5 candidates have measurable amounts of support at this point- Ken Bennett at 20%, Christine Jones at 16%, Scott Smith at 12%, Andrew Thomas at 9%, and Doug Ducey at 6%. Al Melvin, John Molina, and Frank Riggs all register at 1% in the poll.

It’s still early and all of the candidates are looking to increase their name ID, but Thomas’ main claim to fame is that he was disbarred.

I know that state treasurer is almost the epitome of the “low-profile” office in Arizona (not the lowest profile though – quick, name the state mine inspector, without looking it up), but Doug Ducey getting out-polled by somebody who’s more “notorious” than “famous”?
