We received this response from the Lewis campaign:
"Jerry Lewis was recruited to run after the recall election was already set. He has never met or spoken to Randy Parraz. His campaign manager is Anson Clarkson. A life-long resident of LD 18, who is a contract framer and a former intern at the Goldwater Institute. The Jerry Lewis campaign is truly a grassroots effort led by Republicans in Mesa."
This was a response to Turoff's post on SA yesterday:
Anson Clarkson says:

On top of being terribly written, this is patently false. My name is Anson Clarkson. I am Jerry Lewis’ campaign manager. I have never been an union organizer. I have been a self-employed framer and intern at the Goldwater Institute though.
Looks to us like the Pearce supporters are running scared! More to come.....
