Verschoor first treasurer candidate to qualify for ballot

Sen. Thayer Verschoor has filed the nominating petitions necessary to qualify as a candidate for state treasurer.

Verschoor, a Gilbert Republican, filed his paperwork on May 7, turning in more than 7,200 signatures. He needs about 5,600 signatures from registered voters to qualify for the ballot.

Verschoor, who became the first official candidate for treasurer, is expected to face Sen. Barbara Leff and Doug Ducey in the Republican primary. Neither of them has qualified for the ballot.

The deadline to file nominating petitions is May 26.

“I feel pretty good at this point,” Verschoor said. “(But) I always say you feel confident but you run scared.”

Andrei Cherny is the only Democrat running for state treasurer.
