Democrat Fred Duval has filed nominating petition signatures with the Arizona Secretary of State’s office this morning.

The former deputy director of Intergovernmental Affairs in the Clinton White House, Duval has filed over 10,000 signatures in order to qualify a Democratic candidate for governor this fall.

Current Secretary of State Ken Bennett  and former GoDaddy executive Christine Jones have already filed their paperwork with the state to run as Republican candidates for Governor.

Several other announced GOP candidates - including current State Treasurer Doug Ducey, State Senator Al Melvin and former Mesa Mayor Scott Smith have not filed their qualifying signatures.

A complete list of official candidates, maintained by the Arizona Secretary of State's office, can be found here.

Duval opted not to participate in the state's Clean Elections program and will rely on campaign donations to finance his run for governor.
