Martin campaign off to slow start
Shortly after Dean Martin entered the race in January, a Rasmussen Reports poll showed him with a slight edge over Gov. Jan Brewer, as did another poll by the same firm in late March. But his lead disappeared in a mid-April Rasmussen poll, which showed him in fourth place behind Brewer, Buz Mills and former Arizona Republican Party Chairman John Munger. And a May 4 Rocky Mountain Poll by the Behavior Research Center put Martin in third place, trailing Brewer by 12 points.
