Another crowded field of candidates for representatives in the Arizona House is in LD 30 with 6 candidates (two incumbents) seeking the two Republican nominations in the August 24 primary.
The Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Commission (CCEC) debate between these candidates was held on July 20, and is online now (click here). The debate was held at the Pima Community College East campus, 8181 E. Irvington Road, and only 3 candidates Rep. David Gowan, Kurt Knurr, and Parralee Schneider initially participated. Doug Sposito arrived 30 minutes into the debate.
C marks candidate running a “clean” election campaign, T marks a traditional candidate:

I reported about this race back on March 16, 2010 when Ted Vogt was appointed to the vacant LD 30 house seat by the Pima County Board of Supervisors (click here).
Rep. David Gowan has been serving in the state house for 2 years, and is seeking re-election to this seat.
