Richard Grayson Wins Nomination of Americans Elect Party in Arizona's Fourth Congressional District Primary

This afternoon the office of the Arizona Secretary of State released its official canvass of the August 28 primary. It shows that we won the Americans Elect Party primary in Arizona's Fourth Congressional District and says we have been nominated by that party to be its candidate on the November ballot.
We received 11 write-in votes. Sincere thanks to the four voters in Mohave County, the three voters in our home county of Pinal, the two voters in Yuma County, the one voter in Yavapai County and the one voter in La Paz County for writing in our name on the primary ballot.

The other candidates running are Republican Congressman Paul Gosar; Libertarian Joe Pamelia; and the winner of the recount in the Democratic primary between Johnnie Robinson and Mikel Weisser, currently separated by just 19 votes.

In 2010 we won the Green Party primary in Arizona's Sixth Congressional District but were promptly sued by the Arizona Green Party in federal court, alleging we were a "sham" Green Party candidate. We won and were on the November ballot in 2010, getting about 1.4% of the vote in another heavily Republican district.
