Mesa businessman Wil Cardon is beginning a statewide tour to promote his candidacy in Arizona’s 2012 U.S. Senate race.

Cardon’s four-day tour includes first-day stops Tuesday in Casa Grande, Tucson and Sun City.

He says he’ll be campaigning for border security and against taxes and government regulations that he says kill jobs.

Cardon will face U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake in the race for the Republican nomination. Attorney Don Bivens and former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona are running for the Democratic nomination.

They’re all running for the Senate seat now held by Republican Jon Kyl. He’s retiring at the end of his current term.
