Grand Canyon State Gov. Doug Ducey (R), fresh from winning a landslide election to a second term, stated yesterday that he will not be a US Senate candidate in 2020, and that he intends on serving his entire second term.
Appointed Sen. Jon Kyl (R) is likely to soon leave his interim post, since he committed only to serving to the end of 2018 when accepting Gov. Ducey’s short-term appointment after incumbent Sen. John McCain (R) passed away in late August. Once Mr. Kyl departs, Gov. Ducey will name a replacement who could presumably run in the 2020 special election to serve the balance of the McCain term. The seat next comes before the voters for a full term in 2022. Some believed that the Governor would appoint another caretaker officeholder at which point he would run himself. But, such will not be the case.
