Republican gubernatorial candidates will attend a forum on April 23 sponsored by the Sabino High School Young Republican Club, Tucson Republican Women, and Eastside Republican Club. So far, Arizona State Treasurer Dean Martin, weapons facility owner Owen “Buz” Mills, local Tucson attorney John Munger, and Dr. Matt Jette have confirmed their attendance. Incumbent Governor Jan Brewer was invited but apparently has declined to participate.
