FOLLOWING MONEY IN ARIZONA'S POLIITICS: Rep. Trent Franks Hosting D.C. Fundraiser For Senate Candidate Wil Cardon

Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Wil Cardon will be the beneficiary of a Washington, D.C. fundraiser hosted by Rep. Trent Franks (R-CD2) next week.

Roll Call is reporting the July 24 shindig.  It also notes that GOP front-runner Rep. Jeff Flake (R-CD6) just picked up the key Arizona Congressional endorsements of Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl (whose retirement is prompting this primary battle), and that the other GOP members of the Arizona delegation (Schweikert, Quayle, Gosar) have not endorsed.

Cardon is largely self-financed, and is also the beneficiary of a super PAC funded by family member Patrick Cardon.
