STUDY IN CONTRASTS: Jones Self-Funds, Ducey Fundraises, Smith Hybrids, Bennett's Clean Candidate, Rest Struggle

$2.1M of GoDaddy's extraordinary success has funded the very-visible Christine Jones for Governor campaign, while Arizona Treasurer Doug Ducey has not had to use Cold Stone's success to finance his gubernatorial campaign - instead relying on fundraising efforts.  Former Mesa Mayor Scott Smith has put a six-figure loan into his campaign checkbook, but has raised 3/4 of a million from individual contributors.

These are the bottom line takeaways from the new finance reports which were required to be filed by last night.  Arizona's Politics will be updating its tables later today and digging deeper, but wanted to publish something to whet your appetites.
