TUCSON – Flanked by supporters in Tucson this morning, Jeff Flake, a conservative candidate for the United States Senate, turned in his candidate nomination papers and petition signatures to the Arizona Secretary of State’s office, far exceeding the number required to qualify for the statewide ballot. Flake is the first Senate candidate to file.
“Thanks to the outstanding volunteer collection efforts of hundreds across Arizona, we are able to file enough signatures to qualify in all 15 counties,” said Jeff Flake. “These petitions represent thousands of individual volunteer hours and a lot of worn-out shoes. I am so honored and appreciative of the support from so many to make this happen.”
Additionally, volunteers, not paid circulators, collected all signatures for the Flake campaign. The campaign continues to gather signatures and expects to submit a supplemental filing prior to the May 30 deadline.
