2010 Watch

We're combing through the rumor mills, news stories, and blogs to give you the latest on the Governor's race in 2010.

Looks like the Democratic Primary is going to heat up as the summer temperatures rise.

Not to be outdone by Jim Pederson, Attorney General Terry Goddard made it fairly clear that he will be in the race for Governor. First, walking the fine line of "resign to run" with his latest statement, "I intend to run for Governor" and then the news that Goddard and his team are out beating the bushes looking for support for when he launches his exploratory committee in June.

Also, rumors persist that former Tempe mayor and newly-minted Democrat Neil Giuliano is also considering a run. Giuliano has been out of the Arizona limelight since he left the Mayor's office in 2004, but he could provide an interesting wrinkle to the race. Some speculation is that Giuliano is using the rumors to raise his profile for a different statewide seat.
