Race of the Day: Jonathan Paton #AZ01
Jonathan Paton is running in an open seat in Arizona’s First Congressional District. Paton faces liberal Flagstaff Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick on November 6.
As Arizona’s Explorer News reported yesterday, the race comes down to who is the better candidate to fight for more jobs and more freedom:
“Paton is big on taking government out of business, and pushing to get already-established industries, such as mining and drilling, back on track.... Paton said rural Arizona lives and dies by decisions made by the federal government. ‘Your only real government becomes the bureaucrat from Washington,’ he said. ‘In this district, you’ll find somebody who has experienced it, or knows someone who has. You can be a farmer in Marana, a rancher in Safford – at some point they’ve all had to deal with the federal government.’....
“Paton is just as confident in his chances to win the Nov. 6 election that is now less than a week away.
‘I’ve served our country, I’ve served in the legislature,’ Paton said. ‘An NRCC poll showed I am five points ahead, and we feel good about where we are headed. We clearly have the momentum.’”
CNN noted yesterday that “national Republicans have invested heavily in this race to help close the gap in TV ads. This seat is a top priority for both parties.”
