Both candidates Doug Ducey (Republican) and Andrei Cherny (Democrat) are running traditionally funded campaigns, so there will be no Arizona Clean Elections Commission debate between them. But both men are being interviewed on KUAT Channel 6 on September 13 tonight at 6:30 p.m. on Arizona Illustrated. The video is online already (click here).
Andrei Cherny, former Arizona Assistant Attorney General, former economic adviser to President Bill Clinton, author of “The Next Deal: The Future of Public Life in the Information Age”, www.andreiforarizona.com. Born & raised in California, he is a graduate of Harvard College and the U of California Berkeley School of Law.
Doug Ducey, former CEO & Chairman of Cold Stone Creamery, has the endorsement of current Arizona Treasurer Dean Martin, www.votedougducey.com. Doug was born & raised in Ohio, graduated from ASU in Finance. No prior political experience.
The current Arizona Treasurer Dean Martin opted to run for Governor this year, and withdrew from the Republican primary in July, prior to the August 24 primary.
KAET Horizon Channel 8 in Phoenix will be hosting another debate between these 2 candidates on September 29, at 7 p.m. Their website is: http://www.azpbs.org/vote2010/.
UPDATE: Libertarian Thane Eichenauer and Green Party candidate Thomas Meadows are also running for State Treasurer. Eichenauer was included in the KAET debate, but not Meadows.
