Nearly 500 people filled Sinagua Middle School Auditorium on August 7 for a debate among the three candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for Arizona Governor. Voters will choose the nominee in the primary election which is now underway and concludes on the final Election Day of August 28.
Candidates Steve Farley, Kelly Fryer, and David Garcia each gave opening and closing statements and answered questions over a range of topics. The entire debate can be viewed — in segments by topic — on our YouTube channel.
