Gov. Doug Ducey being sworn in on inauguration day, January 7, 2019.

Monday was inauguration day in Arizona. Six statewide officials took the oath of office and officially begin their four-year terms.

That includes Gov. Doug Ducey, Attorney General Mark Brnovich and Mine Inspector Joe Hart, who were re-elected in November, but also newly elected Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman and Treasurer Kimberly Yee.

And, unlike the past several years, two of those statewide elected officials are Democrats.

To talk about the festivities, Howard Fischer of Capitol Media Services joined The Show.

The Show also checked in with Bret Jaspers, who was at the state Capitol.
