Former Secretary Of State Ken Bennett To Challenge Ducey In Republican Primary
Governor Doug Ducey will face some competition in this year’s Republican primary election.
Former Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett said he plans to challenge Ducey.
Bennett told KPNX-TV late Friday that he’s filed papers to run and that he’s concerned about fiscal aspects of Ducey’s proposal for teacher pay raises. Bennett has previously served on the Prescott City Council, the state Board of Education and in the Arizona Senate. He was later appointed as secretary of state in 2009 by former Governor Jan Brewer.
Ducey defeated Bennett and four other Republicans in the 2014 primary for governor.
