Arizona has become an essential key to the Republican Party because it embodies the two wings of the party: Those who disbelieved without evidence or evidence for the result of the 2020 elections (Trump supporters) And those who believe that institutions have been respected. In some ways, this discussion is the same as that between Trump and Pence at the time, when the vice president refused to boycott the results of the 2020 election.

This is the second time a similar scenario has occurred in the primary season. It was the first time in Georgia that Pence supported the gubernatorial primaries against it Brian Kemp, who was the Republican governor of Georgia seeking re-election. Trump publicly clashed with Kemp when he did not want to ignore the results of his 2020 state election. For the primaries, he endorsed another candidate, but in the end Kemp comfortably won his party’s nomination.

In the case of Arizona, Ducey also refused to acknowledge the election results. But Ducey has already served two terms as governor and cannot run again. This is why Trump’s campaign is not against him directly, but against his chosen successor.
