While Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick reported raising $357,000 in a recent financial report, Republican opponent Jonathan Pation reported $343,000 on had at the end of the second quarter.

While Kirkpatrick is running unopposed, Paton faces GOP opponents Doug Wade and Patrick Gatti in the August Primary Election.

Paton reported raising a total of $325,000 in the second quarter.

Kirkpatrick reported having $1.3 million cash on hand.

"Our momentum is growing every day, whether in fundraising or out in the field," said Carmen Gallus, Kirkpatrick's campaign manager. "Because of this overwhelming support, we've been able to open robust headquarters in two key areas of the district -- Flagstaff and Oro Valley -- and will soon open satellite offices in other regions. More and more volunteers are on board and helping us contact thousands of voters across the district."

Paton said, “Together, we will run a strong campaign on the ground and on the air. Having the money to highlight my fiscally conservative record and contrast it with Kirkpatrick's failed record of higher taxes and bigger government will give voters a clear choice in November.

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
