WI Gov. Scott Walker

Doug Ducey demonstrates the kind of conservative, common-sense leadership that our party needs in Arizona. He’s not afraid of taking on tough challenges, and that’s why I know he’d be a great Governor.

U.S. Senator Jon Kyl

Doug Ducey’s leadership style is to first ground himself in the substance of the critical issues facing our state. I respect that. His skills, his knowledge of business management, his conservative credentials, and his proven record as State Treasurer are precisely what are needed for Arizona.

U.S. Senator Mike Lee

“America needs strong leaders who are willing to stand up for conservative ideas and values at every level of government. It takes real leadership to stand up to special interests and push for conservative reforms. Doug Ducey is one of those leaders and that is why I am proud to endorse his candidacy for governor of Arizona.



“Doug has shown courage, vision and leadership on a wide range of issues. He fought relentlessly against tax increases and is committed to shrinking the size and cost of government while eliminating privileges for special interests. Leadership is what leadership does, and what Doug has done as a leader has earned conservatives’ respect and earned our support.

“His commitment to conservatism, his background growing a small ice cream company to a nationally-recognized brand and his record defending Arizona taxpayers make him well suited to lead Arizona for the next four years. I believe that conservative governors like Doug Ducey will lead the way toward a stronger, more prosperous America.”

Jim Click

Doug’s private sector experience and limited government approach is exactly what’s needed to get Arizona moving in the right direction again. We haven’t had someone this good and well-qualified to lead our state and lead our party in a long time. I firmly believe that Doug can be the best Governor Arizona has seen in decades.

State Sen. Al Melvin

I ran for governor because Arizona needs a strong conservative to lead our great state. While my campaign has ended, my fight for conservative values continues. When I withdrew from the race I made it clear that I had no intention of playing spoiler or of even accidentally helping to elect a liberal Governor. I would put my shoulder to the wheel to elect the best possible conservative candidate. That is why I am endorsing Doug Ducey for Governor. After traveling our state and sharing the stage with so many of our fine candidates, I am confident that Doug is the very best choice for conservative voters. His background in the private sector, his work as State Treasurer, and his fidelity to the principles upon which our country and party were founded separate him from the other candidates. I have also been impressed by his grasp of the issues concerning Southern Arizona which, as you imagine, is very near and dear to my heart. With our state and nation at a tipping point, Arizona conservatives cannot afford to divide themselves into so many camps that we end up losing at the ballot box. I am voting for Doug Ducey to be our next governor and I encourage every Arizonan to join me.

Mark Meckler, Co-Founder of Tea Party Patriots

Doug Ducey is, by far, the strongest conservative candidate in Arizona’s race for Governor. As co-founder and former national coordinator of the original Tea Party Patriots, I’m endorsing Doug Ducey because Arizona needs someone who is going to fight to uphold the principles of our Founders. Doug understands that “who decides” is one of the most important questions facing the country today, and like me, he thinks we the people, should be in charge of choices that affect our lives. Both his public- and private-sector experience indicate that he’ll fight the establishment. Doug Ducey believes in limited and effective government, individual responsibility and freedom — and that’s the right direction for our country. Arizona is on the brink of a renaissance. With a solid legislature and Doug Ducey as Governor, Arizona will give Texas a run for its money by enacting policies that will encourage business growth, employment growth and personal prosperity. If you’re looking for a real, small government conservative who understands that citizens, not government, make the country work, I encourage you to join me in supporting Doug Ducey for governor.

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery

Doug stands with me in the fight against crime and the fight for the rights of crime victims. I am proud to support him.

Lea Marquez-Peterson

If we are going to increase job opportunities for the people of our state and give everyone the opportunity for a better life, we will need lower taxes and fewer regulatory burdens on businesses. Doug will work hard to make this happen.

Hon. Robert Fannin

I have given my strong support to Doug. He has the personal character, successful business leadership, free market principles, and fair judgment to be a truly great leader for our state.

Congressman Trent Franks

There’s some good candidates in this race. I’ve concluded in my heart that Doug Ducey personifies everything that the Republican Party should be, not only on issues and the constitutional foundations, but the man has a great love for humanity. And, for me, that is something that really comes out in him in ways that we really need this party to exhibit in the future.

Congressman John Shadegg

Doug Ducey is the kind of common-sense leader Arizona needs as our next governor. I know firsthand that the federal government has gotten out of control and that Doug will stand up for Arizonans against Washington overreach, work to reduce the size of government and protect our liberties.

Cathi Herrod

Doug’s commitment to life, traditional marriage, child protection, defending religious liberty, and promoting school choice make him my personal choice.

Randy Kendrick

Doug is committed to health care reform driven by market choices freely made by patients with their doctors, not driven by government or insurance companies. I’m proud to work with him to bring patient centered health care to the people of Arizona. Doug is deeply committed to constitutional policies and principles, and yet at the same time he possesses great common sense built on his background as a successful entrepreneur.

Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio

Doug Ducey is a strong leader who has proven through both his business experience and time spent as state treasurer that he holds the interest of Arizona citizens to the highest regard. His push to reduce government overreach and create jobs is exactly what our economy needs. He has earned my vote for governor.

Former Arizona Gov. Fife Symington

I’ve gotten to know Doug well over the past several years. Here’s what impresses me: Doug has a clear vision about where he wants to lead the state. His focus is the economy and making Arizona a magnet for job creation and economic opportunity. That has to be the number one priority for our next governor, and Doug has the right background, skills, and ideas to actually make a difference.

Former Congressman Barry Goldwater, Jr.

Doug Ducey has earned my vote for governor because he has shown through both his business and public sector experience that he has the conservative-driven principles we need to accelerate the economy, balance the budget and provide leadership. His thoughtful approach to policy issues and steady direction reflect what is best for Arizona, and that is why he is my choice for governor.

Arizona Free Enterprise Club PAC

Ducey is a committed free market fiscal conservative who won’t shy away from making tough decisions or taking on big challenges…His leadership is what we need to craft free market, pro-growth oriented policies that make Arizona a great place to work and live.

Syndicated Conservative Radio Host Hugh Hewitt

I have endorsed State Treasurer Doug Ducey in the race and will hold a small fundraiser for him in April. He is a conservative, a successful businessman, and has run and won state-wide in 2010 and led state’s anti-tax hike forces two years later in the defeat of a state wide initiative pushing a billion-dollar tax hike. Ducey has the additional advantage of having been born in Ohio which of course matters greatly even though he has spent his entire adult life in Arizona.

Arizona Right to Life PAC

Doug upholds core pro-life values and priorities, and not because they are politically advantageous, but because the life issue is foundational to every basic right and freedom we cherish. Doug understands well that protecting and supporting innocent human life is not a mere political issue, but one that transcends the spectrum of party affiliations, speaking to the very essence of what it means to be a concerned and compassionate citizen of this great state.

Jerry Colangelo

When it comes to the governor’s race, Doug Ducey is the best candidate who truly represents the spirit of Arizona’s business community. Doug is a‎ proven leader with an executive background and conservative heart. He knows what it takes to improve the state’s economy, create jobs and reform‎ our education system and will make it his mission to streamline government programs and safeguard Arizona from federal government overreach. He’s my choice for governor, and I encourage my fellow business leaders to join me in supporting his campaign.

Doug Ducey has a solid record on issues that matter to conservatives.

Scottsdale Mayor W.J. “Jim” Lane

I am proud to endorse Doug Ducey for Governor. Doug stands firmly behind our shared values of limited and effective government, individual responsibility and a government that works for the people, not over them. He built a business, Cold Stone Creamery, now he wants to shrink a government. Arizona needs Doug Ducey as Governor.
