Doug Ducey wins reelection in Arizona governor race
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) won reelection on Tuesday, edging out Democrat David Garcia to secure a second term.
Ducey entered the national spotlight earlier this year when hundreds of public schools were closed for four days as a result of a statewide teachers strike. Ducey was later tasked with naming a replacement for the late Sen.
