Governor Doug Ducey Statement on Primary Election

August 29, 2018

Governor Doug Ducey released the following statement following the August 28 primary election:

“I am grateful and humbled by the continued support we’ve received from Arizonans tonight. We’ve delivered substantive reforms and made real progress these last three years in order to improve our state.

“Together, we’ve balanced a one billion dollar budget deficit, invested 2.7 billion additional dollars into education, created economic conditions resulting in nearly one-quarter million new jobs, and clamped down on drug smugglers and human traffickers. We’ve done it by looking past labels and party assignments, and serving the public with civility and cooperation.

“Now we must come together again to ensure we build on the significant gains of the last three years to secure Arizona’s future. I look forward to the campaign ahead in the weeks and months to come.”
