PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has officially launched his re-election campaign.
The Republican Ducey also released a video Monday entitled "Securing Arizona's Future" that promotes his accomplishments since taking office in January 2015 as the state's 23rd governor.
Four years ago, Arizona was only half recovered from the recession and families were hurting. Today, Arizona is growing and getting stronger, but we have more work to do. Together we are securing Arizona’s future. Our next chapter begins today. #SecureAZ pic.twitter.com/yxHEtEEKjt— Doug Ducey (@dougducey) June 18, 2018
Former Secretary of State Ken Bennett has filed signatures to run as a Republican challenger to Ducey in Arizona's Aug. 28 primary election.
State Sen. Steve Farley, U.S. Army veteran David Garcia and YWCA Southern Arizona CEO Kelly Fryer are the three Democrats who filed signatures for their party's primary by last month's deadline.
Also running in the gubernatorial race is Libertarian candidate Kevin McCormick.
