Yavapai County Chairman Malcolm Barrett, Jr., an establishment friend of Arizona House Speaker Andy Tobin and Senate President Steve Pierce, was unceremoniously shown the door by conservative Jim Dutton in a decisive 83 – 57 upset vote at the Yavapai County GOP Statutory meeting today. Jim Dutton is the Pastor of Bible Baptist Church in Prescott. Barrett has long been rumored to be eyeing a legislative run when Tobin is termed out.
