Democratic gubernatorial candidate Fred DuVal issued a brief video statement knocking Republican opponent Doug Ducey for bringing New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie back to Arizona:
Arizona is headed in the wrong direction. I know it. You know it. And Doug Ducey knows it. That’s why Ducey has pulled the fire alarm. His national party bought millions of dollars of attack ads, Mitt Romney came to Arizona last week, and Chris Christie is here a second time to try to rescue Ducey.
But out of state money and politicians can't help Doug Ducey because he's got a big problem: his ideas for Arizona are terrible — more tax cuts for the rich, less money for our children's schools.
Meanwhile, Ducey plans a swing through Southern Arizona tomorrow where he'll campaign alongside his fellow GOP statewide candidates and Congressional District 2 Republican hopeful Martha McSally, who is in a tight race against Democratic U.S. Rep. Ron Barber. From the Ducey campaign:
Arizona’s state treasurer and GOP nominee for governor, Doug Ducey, tomorrow will launch a statewide victory tour on the "Opportunity Express," and will travel to Maricopa, Mohave, Pima, Pinal, Yavapai and Coconino Counties through Monday.
The events for Friday, October 31 are as follows:
Doug Ducey, Arizona State Treasurer & GOP Gubernatorial Nominee
Michele Reagan, GOP Nominee for Secretary of State
Mark Brnovich, GOP Nominee for Attorney General
Diane Douglas, GOP Nominee for Arizona State Superintendent of Public Instruction
Doug Little, GOP Nominee for Corporation Commission
Tom Forese, GOP Nominee for Corporation Commission
Andy Tobin, Speaker of the Arizona House of Representatives & GOP Congressional Nominee for CD-1
Martha McSally, GOP Congressional Nominee for CD-2
