A conservative pro-life candidate may be in trouble in Yuma due to a petition challenge by the Democratic party. According to the Arizona Republic and the Yuma Daily Sun Democrats claim that 143 of Jones’ signatures are invalid. A hearing will be held on Monday, July 3rd to determine if there are grounds to check the 315 signatures to find 108 invalid signatures.
Should this occur and the Democrats succeed in removing Jones from the Primary ballot, Republicans in Yuma County will need to put a write-in campaign in place to ensure Russ Jones gets through the Primary Election in September and moves forward to the General Election in November. This should not be too monumental a task and Russ Jones is an easy name to remember and to write in. Just think if the Republicans has to write in a name like Rumplestilskin?
