Arizona Realtors back 78 statewide and legislative candidates

The Arizona Association of Realtors endorsed 78 statewide and legislative candidates the group says promote issues important to homeowners, Realtors and the real estate industry.

Each candidate the group endorsed had to complete a questionnaire and was then interviewed to determine their support of those issues.

“Everyone with an interest in real estate issues should use this as a guide when voting this year,” said Tom Farley, the group’s CEO, in a press release that accompanied a list of endorsements.

The group endorsed 54 Republicans and 24 Democrats.

Republican incumbents Gov. Jan Brewer and Secretary of State Ken Bennett got the group’s backing, while Democrat Felecia Rotellini earned the endorsement for Attorney General.

  1. It appears the realtors, who had a big hand in creating the real estate mess we’re in, like the status quo…legislators who have long supported and subsidized growth as the primary industry in Arizona. A pox on both their houses.

  2. If this is news, then I would like to know how they determine which candidate they will endorse.
