DGA Statement on Primary Results in Arizona
“With Arizona Republicans finally finished with their extreme race to the far right, Fred DuVal enters the general election with the momentum required to become Arizona’s next governor. Fred has a real track record of delivering bipartisan results for the middle class and offers a clear vision for an economy that works for everyone. He created jobs as the leader of Clean Energy Fuels and helped lead Arizona’s universities during a period of deep budget cuts. Perhaps most importantly, Fred would bring honest leadership and the highest standard of integrity back to state government.
“In stark contrast, Republican Doug Ducey is a right-wing politician who made millions off failing businesses and left taxpayers with the tab for defaulted loans. While Fred was fighting to protect schools and secure a brighter economic future for students, Ducey and the legislature were massively underfunding K-12 education. Arizona’s middle-class families need a governor who will fight for a stronger and fairer economy, and that’s what they’d get in Fred DuVal.”
