Jim Waring to Announce for CD-3

Senator Jim Waring will make an official announcement at 1 PM today regarding his entry into the Congressional District 3 race. Waring, who is currently running for State Treasurer, is expected to announce withdrawing from the Treasurer’s race leaving the primary a little less crowded. (State Senator Barbara Leff and former State Representative Ted Carpenter are also seeking the Treasurer’s seat. Senator Thayer Verschoor has yet to form an official committee for State Treasurer.)

Still likely to announce for CD-3,  is State Senator Pamela Gorman. State Representative Sam Crump has already announced his intention to seek the seat being vacated by John Shadegg.

On the Democratic side, Phoenix Mayor, Phil Gordon, is seriously considering a bid for the seat.
