PAGE 12 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1966 FOR PRIMARY State Race Interest Lags Editor's Note: Races for state offices have drawn little attention this election year. Here the AP political writer for Arizona highlights the key struggles. By ROBERT K. WALKER Associated Press Writer One of a series PHOENIX -- (fl -- Other than the race for governor, there has been little interest in the primary election for state offices. As usual, no one is challeng- i n g Democratic incumbents Wesley Bolin for secretary of state or Jewel Jordan for auditor. No Republicans bothered to file either. There are no primary contests for judicial posts, mine inspector or state superintendent of public instruction. Perhaps the hottest fight has been for the Democratic nomination for state tax commissioner. That one pits current State T r e a s u r e r Bob Kennedy of Phoenix against former House Speaker W. B. Barkley of Glendale. Lone GOP entry James Kirk of Tucson is letting them battle it out. Kennedy, 53, came out swinging by accusing Barkley oj being the first pinto-Democratic leader of a coalition in the House. He also charged that tax commission employes were being used to campaign for Barkley. Untrue, replied Barkley, 59, who claims a key role in setting up the current tax reassessment program. The Pennsylvania naive who came to Arizona 38 years ago says he should be elected to see that the revaluation program isn't lost. Kennedy, a New Jersey native who came to Arizona for his health in 1959, won the state Analysis treasurer's office two years ago by a slirri margin over five-time treasurer J. W. Kelly. The treasurer can't succeed himself in Arizona. Kelly, a 66-year-old veteran campaigner, is back after the treasurer's office again this year. He has been assistant state treasurer four terms since he gave up being a Phoenix service station owner. If Kelly and primary opponent John McLaughlin have anything bad to say about each other, they aren't saying it very loud. McLaughlin jumped in the treasurer's contest this year after finding himself reapportioned out of a seat in the State Senate. The 37-year-old Greenlee County Democrat was an electrician for Phelps Dodge, but has studied business administration at Wisconsin. Charles Garlnd of Phoenix, former executive secretary of the Arizona State Fair Commission, is the lone Republican. Two Democrats seeking the nomination for attorney general have been content to aim all their fire at GOP incumbent Darrell Smith of Mesa, who is unopposed in the primary. They charge he has operated a "do- nothing" administration and pledge to be aggressive if elected. They are Scottsdale attorney Charles Duecy, 44, and Phoenix lawyer Reid Woodfprd, 43. Neither has held public office before, and both have attempted a statewide .campaign. Woodford, who classifies himself as a "middle of the road" Democrat, is the son of a Clifton garageman and got his law degree from Arizona. Duecy is a logger-businessman turned lawyer. A native of Washington, he also got his law degree in Tucson after successful careers in other fields. The only other race matches incumbent Milton Husky and Thomas Croaff Jr. for the Corporation Commission. There has been little said in this race for t h i s Democratic nomination. Husky is a former state treasurer, Croaff is an attorney and previously ran unsuccessfully for several offices. N e x t : scramble.
