Douglas Anthony Ducey (born April 9, 1964, age 58) is a businessman and the current governor of Arizona. A conservative Republican, Ducey has previously served as the Treasurer of Arizona.

Governor of Arizona[edit]

Ducey was elected in 2014 succeed Jan Brewer, defeating his Democrat opponent in the gubernatorial election by over 10% of the vote.[2]

Ducey signed into law on January 5, 2015 a bill that would require all high school students in Arizona to pass a civics test similar to immigrant naturalization tests in order to graduate.[3]

An opponent of ObamaCare, Ducey signed a bill in April 2015 that would prohibit the enforcement of the Affordable Care Act in Arizona.[4]

Ducey signed SB 1367 into law on March 31, 2017, a "born-alive" bill that would require physicians to care for and protect infants who survive abortions.[5]

An advocate of school choice, Ducey signed into law in April 2017 a bill that would extend school voucher eligibilities to all schoolchildren in Arizona.[6]

After the death of sitting RINO senator John McCain, Ducey appointed former Arizona senator Jon Kyl on September 2018 to fill the seat vacated.[7]

Ducey was easily re-elected to a second term in office in the 2018 Arizona gubernatorial election.[8]

After Kyl announced that he would be stepping down from his brief tenure in the Senate seat, Ducey appointed Martha McSally to succeed Kyl.[9]

Political views[edit]

Being mostly conservative, Ducey opposes abortion, Obamacare, and illegal immigration.[10]
