Democrats are breathing a sigh of relief now that Sen. Steve Farley is not the only potential choice they have in the 2018 Arizona race for governor. On Friday, David Garcia tweeted out a hint about his possible plan to run for governor in response to Governor Doug Ducey’s decision to sign the school voucher bill.
Garcia, an associate professor at ASU, ran in 2014 for Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction against Superintendent Diane Douglas.
Many of Garcia’s supporters wanted him to run for the superintendent’s post again, but the bench is shallow and Garcia would have a much better shot than Farley.
Ducey does not enjoy wide-spread support. However, Arizona is a red state and Garcia’s chances for success are slim.
