Carolyn Classen is reporting that there is another candidate for mayor, billionaire and “patriot not a politician” Marshall Home. No, I have no idea how the guy got to be a billionaire, or why a guy with that much money hasn’t previously raised his head very high in town. He’s an organizer of something called the “Independent Rights Party,” which meets on Saturday mornings at an East side restaurant.
There may be a couple of problems with his candidacy. Home is filed as “nomination other than by primary” (a designation for candidates running under no party affiliation) but told Classen that he will be running against Jonathan Rothschild in the Democratic primary. His filing also lists an address, presumably his home, on the far Southwest side of Tucson outside of city limits.
