Tucson’s community and business leader, Randy Fleenor, running as a write-in candidate in District 9 was confirmed Sunday by Pima County Election officials as having double the required number of votes to be on the November ballot.
“I think our grassroots campaign is unprecedented and shows that the voters are eager for an alternative in District 9,” Fleenor commented. “Pima County and LD-9 residents have suffered from single party rule in the minority long enough. The politically correct Progressive agenda has done nothing to advance our economy, create new jobs or improve our quality of life. As a long-term Tucson resident, I want to represent the people of Southern Arizona in Phoenix and fight for financial accountability, promote conservative values and foster economic viability for all.”
Fleenor had planned to run for one of the two Arizona House seats as a Republican, but after careful consideration recognized that the Republican Party race needed a viable candidate to run for the Senate. Fleenor announced his intent to run in May.

Fleenor’s pro-education campaign focuses on a commonsense approach to financial accountability that ensures spending be prioritized, without raising taxes.
As a proud parent of two grown children, Fleenor feels passionately about being a positive influence in the lives of the young people of Pima County. He wants to ensure that the diverse student body and businesses in District 9 have an advocate at the State’s deliberations and decision-making to meet their current needs and their goals for the future.
Fleenor now moves on to the general election to be held November 6.
