On the very same day that the current Secretary of State certified the referendum ("citizens veto") of HB 2305 -- the Voter Suppression Act -- to the ballot in 2014, the co-author of that bill, Sen. Michele Reagan announced her candicacy for Secretary of State. Awesome! Sen. Reagan enters race for secretary of state post:
State Sen. Michele Reagan formally entered the race for Arizona secretary of state on Tuesday, touting her experience in business and election matters. [Such as drafting voter suppression bills.]

She noted her experience this year as chairman of the Elections Committee.
That background, she said, makes her well-suited to be secretary of state, a job that includes overseeing elections and managing business filings.
We note your experience as chairman of the Elections Committee as well -- you are the face of voter suppression in Arizona. You also refuse to consider any bills that would bring transparency and disclosures to campaign finance laws to end the practice of "dark money" contributions from anonymous sources. You are a terrible candidate for Secretary of State.
Sen. Reagan will face a GOP primary against self-funded millionaire Wil Cardon, who lost a bid for U.S. Senate last year, and Rep. Justin Pierce, who is running Clean Elections because Wil Cardon accused him of a conflict of interest with his father Gary Pierce serving on the Arizona Corporation Commission. So much nepotism and sense of entitlement among rich kids.
