Rusty’s telephone problem

Rusty Bowers just can't seem to get his numbers to add up right. First, Bowers handed out business cards in CD 1 with a "480" area code - heresy for a candidate in this state's rural region. Now, Bowers - who admitted his "naiveté" in using his Mesa-based home number to run in a non-Maricopa County district - has decided to put his new number on his Web site so anyone can call him at any time.
