Incumbent governor Doug Ducey received the nod from voters Tuesday to run for re-election in November.
Ducey's victory was hardly a surprise as no Arizona incumbent governors have lost in a primary since 1950.
Ducey was declared the winner over challenger Ken Bennett when Ducey was leading by nearly 40 percent of the vote.
Bennett is a Prescott native and former Arizona Secretary of State and former State Senate President. Bennett also ran for governor in 2014 and was one of the Republican candidates defeated by Ducey in the primary.
Notably, Ducey received a strong endorsement from President Trump via Twitter on Monday.
Now, Ducey will take on Democratic nominee David Garcia in the general election in November and he’ll have his work cut out for him as he aims to keep his seat and become the fifth Arizona governor in a row to serve longer than one term.
In a general election NBC News/Marist poll of registered voters from June, just 26 percent said they would re-elect Ducey. About 59 percent said it’s time for a change and 15 percent were unsure. Among Republican voters only, 43 percent said Ducey should be re-elected, 34 percent said they wanted a change and 23 percent were unsure.
The Arizona general election takes place on Nov. 6.
