Arizona GOP governor's primary hot in final week

PHOENIX - The race for the Republican nomination in Arizona's governor's race is down to a final week of furious campaigning and even more furious efforts to court voters with television ads.

Monday's developments included another big cash infusion by GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons to a political action committee backing his former corporate lawyer, gubernatorial candidate Christine Jones. Mesa Mayor Scott Smith campaigned with Gov. Jan Brewer in Prescott and a candidate forum attended by four of the six GOP candidates was set for Flagstaff in the evening.
