Doug Ducey

After the Associated Press declared him the winner in the race for Arizona governor, Doug Ducey released the following statement:

"Arizonans have voted, and they have spoken. I am incredibly humbled by the confidence Arizonans have placed in me and honored to continue working on their behalf. To everyone who volunteered their time and energy as part of our campaign, thank you from the bottom of my heart. This victory would not be possible with you.

I want to wish David and his family all the best. And I also want to thank Angel Torres for stepping up and bringing his ideas to this race. With the campaign over, it’s time to come together—as we’ve done these last four years—with a renewed focus on moving forward as one Arizona.

We’ve come a long way these last four years, but there’s more to do to grow our economy, improve public education, protect public safety, and expand opportunity for all.

Tonight, we celebrate. Tomorrow, we get to work to continue securing Arizona’s future."
