Final Four Gubernatorial Candidate Forum - Tucson
October 24, 2002
"It was a tag-team fight at last night's gubernatorial debate in Tucson, pitting the field against Democratic front-runner Janet Napolitano. In a candidate forum co-sponsored by the Tucson Citizen and the Goldwater Institute, Republican Matt Salmon, independent Richard Mahoney and Libertarian Barry Hess pointed fingers at Napolitano for not coming clean with voters, and they said she'll raise taxes if elected."
