Payson leaders turn out at mayor’s reception for front runner in bid to fill seat of retiring U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Jeff Flake brought his already year-old campaign to Payson Saturday to take advantage of a warm endorsement from Payson Mayor Kenny Evans in front of a Rim Club meeting room full of Rim Country leaders. The libertarian-leaning congressman with deep Arizona roots and a pioneer Mormon heritage hopes to parlay his ultra-conservative political ratings and his long fight against congressional earmarks into a chance to fill the seat of retiring Sen. Jon Kyl. He faces opposition in the primary and a likely general election challenge by former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona.
