PHOENIX - We're just two days away from Tuesday's special Phoenix mayoral runoff election. On this weekend's "Sunday Square Off," we break down the race between Kate Gallego and Daniel Valenzuela.
Drama, money and GOP role in Phoenix mayor’s race
We break down the race between former council members Kate Gallego and Daniel Valenzuela with Jessica Boehm, Phoenix City Hall reporter for the Arizona Republic, and Chad Campbell, a former House minority leader who’s now a Democratic consultant at Strategies 360.
‘Who would want this job?’
Whoever wins the Phoenix mayor’s race faces daunting challenges: major labor contracts, a fractured council and another election for mayor next year. Our ‘Square Off’ panel breaks down the challenges and the big money flowing into the race.
Jessica Boehm reports Suns owner Robert Sarver donated $150,000 to aid the campaigns of Valenzuela and Councilwoman Vania Guevara.
Sarver issued this statement after the "Square Off" taping:
"I care deeply about the future of the city of Phoenix. I am proud to support candidates who have the best interests of the city at heart, particularly those who are committed to job creation and improving education. I gave openly, not behind a veil, and I look forward to the exciting days ahead for our community."
