5 candidates seek House seats

Four Republican candidates will be vying for the two Arizona House of Representatives seats in Legislative District One in the July 31 primary election.

Only one, Rep. Karen Fann of Prescott, is an incumbent. Rep. Andy Tobin of Paulden has hit the terms limit and is running for U.S. representative outside his congressional district in CD1.

The Secretary of State's website lists candidates who filed their nomination petitions by the 5 p.m. Wednesday deadline.

Other LD1 House candidates are retired military officer Noel Campbell of Prescott, who ran unsuccessfully for the seat in the past; Sean Englund, a ranch manager from Cave Creek; and former Arizona senator Linda Gray, who recently moved to Prescott from Phoenix.

The two primary winners will face off against Democrat Frank Cuccia of Prescott.

Arizona Sen. Steve Pierce of Prescott is unopposed in his bid for re-election.

U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar of Prescott is running unopposed in the primary, but has general election competition from Democrat Mike Weisser of Golden Valley, who lost to Gosar two years ago in the heavily Republican-dominated 4th Congressional District.

Two former Republican legislators from Prescott are running for statewide offices, Ken Bennett for governor and Lucy Mason for Corporation Commission.
