In the general election for governor of Arizona, the Democratic Party will be represented by Katie Hobbs.
Arizona Secretary of State Lorena Hobbs had about 75% of the vote in the first round of Tuesday’s primary election, according to early results.
The Democratic nominee for governor, Lorena Hobbs, thanked the people of Arizona for electing her and said, “I want to thank the people of Arizona for electing me and entrusting me with this immense responsibility.”
My door isn’t the only door that’s being slammed by the people who threaten our democracy, our state, and our personal freedoms. To wreak havoc on our state and obliterate any remaining semblance of normalcy.”
Shortly after the results were announced, Marco Lopez, the former mayor of Nogales, conceded.
Thank you to everyone in Arizona who helped us build an incredible and memorable campaign,’ Lopez said in a tweet, ‘for allowing me the incredible opportunity to share my message with you over the past several months.’
We are disappointed in the results, but our movement will live on in the campaigns of so many strong Democrats running in the upcoming general election.”
The stakes are simply too high not to do everything we can to get them elected or re-elected.”
To succeed Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, who is serving his final term, Hobbs will face the Republican primary winner in the general election.
In June of 2021, Hobbs officially entered the race.
During her time in the Arizona Senate, she was a well-known defender of the state’s voting procedures,
regularly appearing in local and national media to denounce the GOP leadership’s order to conduct an audit of the county’s general election in 2020.
Hobbs served in both chambers of the Arizona Legislature prior to her current position in 2018.
Since Janet Napolitano was re-elected in 2006, Arizona has not had a Democratic governor since.
