The former president said Friday he will never support Governor Doug Ducey’s rumored ambitions for a federal office.

PHOENIX – Former President Donald Trump has once again ridiculed Gov. Doug Ducey, more than a year after he was criticized for certifying the results of the 2020 Arizona election that declared Joe Biden the state’s winner.

The day before his scheduled visit to Pinal County, Trump issued a statement Friday announcing that he would never support Ducey’s possible ambitions to run for a U.S. Senate seat.

“Rumor has it that Doug Ducey, Arizona’s weak RINO governor, is being pushed by Old Crow Mitch McConnell to run for the United States Senate,” Trump said in a statement. “You will never have my endorsement or the support of MAGA Nation!”

The Republican governor has previously denied any plans to run for a seat in the Senate. But a recent Politico article suggests that there are still rumors among political experts that Ducey might be considering a last-minute candidacy for the Senate.

The governor’s relationship with Trump has begun to plummet publicly over the past year after the former president began alleging that rampant election fraud cost Arizona in the 2020 presidential election.

State and county officials have repeatedly denied allegations that the Arizona election was mismanaged.

Maricopa County recently released a report that defiantly challenged claims of wrongdoing made in a Republican-led review of the county’s 2020 ballots.

Ducey had been a supporter of Trump during the election and campaigned for him in 2020. But their relationship worsened after Ducey began distancing himself from Trump’s fraud conspiracies.

Ducey remarkably silenced a Trump call while the governor certified the results of the Arizona election. The former president later criticized Ducey on Twitter, retweeting a comment that Ducey “betrayed the people of Arizona.”
