Pearce Set for Legislative Race against RINO Crandall

KFYI Radio’s Ted Houston reports …

Former state Senate President Russell Pearce, who was defeated in a recall election in November, isn’t retiring from politics. He’s not even retiring from the state legislature, if things go according to his plan.  Pearce, who previously represented Legislative District 18 (LD-18), has filed papers with the Arizona Secretary of State’s office to run as a candidate in the newly-redrawn LD-25, in which his Mesa home is now located. Pearce would challenge current Rep. Rich Crandall, a moderate Republican who has often been critical of, and disagreed with, Pearce’s stand on some issues. His filing for the seat comes just days after he was elected to a leadership post with the Arizona Republican Party.

Crandall was one of a handful of Republicans who participated with Democrats in a fundraiser two years ago and is seen as soft on the border invasion.
