Doug Ducey, Trump is targeting another RINO. According to the Daily Beast, Trump is telling his allies behind the scenes that he is willing to travel to campaign against Arizona Governor Doug Ducey (R).
Doug Ducey allowed for the 2020 election to be a mess in Arizona.
It’s April 2021, and Donald Trump still can’t get past his grudge with Republican Gov. Doug Ducey for refusing to overturn the 2020 election results in Arizona.
The ex-president is still so bothered by Ducey’s refusal to try to throw out Democratic votes in Arizona that he’s told associates he would gladly and personally spoil any of Ducey’s future political plans.
In recent weeks, President Trump has gone so far as to tell some close associates that if Ducey decided to run for Senate and managed to lock up the Republican nomination in 2022, he would consider traveling to Arizona to campaign for Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly, according to two people familiar with the ex-president’s private rantings.
Trump has also issued multiple statements hammering Doug Ducey.
In his most recent statement, he called on Ducey to protect the audit into Maricopa County with either the National Guard or State Police.
President Donald Trump is still so angry with Gov. Doug Ducey of Arizona that he has told allies he might travel to Arizona to campaign against him, The Daily Beast reported on Monday.
Trump released two statements last week slamming Ducey for not backing Republicans’ attempts to overturn President Joe Biden’s victory in Arizona in November.
Trump’s anger at Ducey, whose second term as governor ends next year, has spilled into private conversations, The Daily Beast reported.
In a statement on Saturday, Trump said Ducey should be helping protect the private firm the GOP had hired to conduct the recount.
“The Republican Party is demanding that Governor Ducey of Arizona immediately provide large-scale security for the brave American Patriots doing the Forensic Audit of the 2020 Presidential Election. Governor Ducey will be held fully responsible for the safety of those involved,” he said.
Trump first took issue with Ducey in November after the governor certified Biden’s election victory.
“Arizona will not forget what Ducey just did,” Trump said at the time.
