Statewide Democratic Citizens Clean Elections candidate debates online (updated)


The Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Commission hosts (during election years) candidate debates for contested races between those seeking public funding (clean) and those raising funds privately.   AZ Blue Meanie posted the entire statewide schedule earlier, but here’s the listing for the few contested Democratic races, statewide.  The Republicans have their own contested candidate forums.  Videos of these debates will be posted online as well.

Governor (3 candidates – Steve Farley, Kelly Fryer, David Garcia):  August 2,  5:30 p.m., view online at Arizona PBS

Secretary of State (3 candidates – Katie Hobbs, Mark Gordon, Leslie Pico): July 18, 5:30 p.m. view online at Arizona PBS /// UPDATE6/29/18 : Mark Gordon and Leslie Pico have both withdrawn, so only Katie Hobbs is running for this seat.  July 18 debate has been cancelled.

Superintendent of Public Instruction (2 candidates – Kathy Hoffman, David Schapira):  (held on June 13)

Corporation Commission (3 candidates for 2 seats – Sandra Kennedy, Bill Mundell, Kiana Sears):   June 27, 5:30 p.m. view online at Arizona PBS.  Updated video below:

The other statewide offices (Attorney General, Treasurer, Mine Inspector) each has only one Democrat running, so no debates will be held till before the General Election on Nov. 6, 2018.

I have posted these candidate debates on our image Calendar as well, and will post the video link after the debates, as a comment.

Updates at CCEC website (which also includes the legislative debates) :

Vote wisely on or before the primary on August 28, 2018.
