CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) - Republican mail fliers in Arizona’s 1st Congressional District are urging voters to consider a Green Party candidate.

The Casa Grande Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/2es11go ) that Green Party candidate Ray Parrish has been appearing on mail fliers paid for by the Arizona Republican Party as a more progressive choice over former state Sen. Tom O’Halleran, the Democratic candidate in CD1.

Arizona Republican Party spokesman Tim Sifert says the party does not support the platforms of either Parrish or O’Halleran, but that the flier is meant to provide information for voters on all candidates in CD1.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeau, the Republican candidate, is not represented on the fliers with O’Halleran and Parrish.

Parrish says it’s nice to have the publicity, but he doesn’t like being used in the Republican Party’s attacks on O’Halleran.
