In the battle of endorsements by former mayors of future mayor-wannabe's, it looks like it's Greg Stanton 2, Wes Gullett 1-ish.

It would be 2 if you include someone who only served as mayor for 10 days.

Gullett has been endorsed by former Phoenix mayors Paul Johnson and John Nelson, now a state senator, who served briefly as mayor when Johnson resigned to run for governor.

Nelson's 10-day stint was over when the City Council appointed Councilwoman Thelda Williams as temporary mayor. So, we're not sure if Nelson really qualifies ...

Anyway ...

Stanton picked up endorsements by former Phoenix mayors Skip Rimsza and Terry Goddard, former state Attorney General.
