In their final debate before the Nov. 4 general election, Republican Doug Ducey and Democrat Fred DuVal grappled with how they would solve the billion-dollar deficit they’ll inherit as Arizona’s next governor, with neither candidate giving much in the way of firm proposals.
Fred DuVal’s Arizona driver’s license was suspended for several months this year.
A campaign aide would not disclose whether he actually operated a motor vehicle during that period, but other media reports say that he did drive during the roughly four months the license was suspended.
As early ballots went out, the extremely lopsided outside spending in the governor’s race strongly favored Republican nominee Doug Ducey.
In the meantime, independent expenditure spending for Democratic nominee Fred DuVal is picking up, but not by much.
Thursday marks the first day for voters to go to voting centers and cast ballots for statewide, legislative and local races and ballot measures. And county registrars of voters are mailing early ballots starting today.
