FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLITICS: Congressional Candidates Andy Tobin, Martha McSally Plan Joint Fundraiser

(UPDATE, 5:20pm: Please see new story on "Arizona Grassroots Action Super PAC", possibly pushing boundaries of non-coordinated coordinated efforts.)

Two Arizona GOP Congressional candidates - facing primary contests - are joining forces to raise money together.  State House Speaker Andy Tobin and Air Force Col. Martha McSally (ret.) have filed to hold a joint fundraiser.

Tobin is facing significant primary competition, but is planning to face incumbent Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-CD1) in November.  McSally narrowly lost to Rep. Ron Barber (D-CD2) in 2012 and has an inside track on the GOP nomination.

Their joint fundraising committee - called the McSally Tobin Victory Committee - is based out of Virginia.  Arizona's Politics has asked for details on the fundraiser and will update as needed.
