Ducey accepting his party's nomination for Governor of Arizona on August 26, 2014.

Republican State Treasurer and former Cold Stone Creamery CEO Doug Ducey has defeated his Democratic opponent Fred DuVal in the Arizona gubernatorial race, reports The Huffington Post.

During his campaign, Ducey relied heavily on his “conservative ice-cream guy” persona, as one campaign identified him.

During a June candidate forum, Ducey reportedly told a crowd, “I want you to look at me and evaluate me from your personal experience at Cold Stone Creamery,” according to The Arizona Republic.

This summer, Ducey also set up a makeshift ice cream counter inside his campaign headquarters, offering voters miniature containers of Cold Stone Creamery ice cream, playing up Ducey’s role in the “hometown company that started small and made it big in the franchise business and, during its boom years, drew comparisons to Starbucks,” reports the Arizona Republic.

In his acceptance speech, Ducey promised to focus on economic growth and help “lead to the recovery we have all longed for.” Ducey will take office in January.

Governor Doug Ducey issued Executive Order 2021-06 on March 25. After scrolling through 17 WHEREAS’ readers will finally get down to the NOW THEREFORE, officially certified with a gold seal, signed by Ducey and attested to by the secretary of state. According to COVID-19 Tracker, over 3 million vaccine doses have been administered so far in Arizona, with 14.8% fully vaccinated, and 26.7% of the population who have received at least one dose.

Bearing the effusive title, “New Phase of COVID-19 Mitigation…Business Guidelines Transition From Requirements to Recommendations,” the Executive Order officially provides Arizonans and businesses the ability to get back to living and reopening businesses. There’s always a backstory.

Ducey’s official bio omits his close association with John and Cindy Hensley McCain. When Ducey came to Arizona to attend ASU he worked at Hensley & Company, heiress Cindy’s Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship inherited from her father. A squish Republicrat, she endorsed and campaigned for Joe Biden for president in 2020.

Ever pragmatic Ducey was onstage with President Donald Trump at his Feb. 19, 2020 overflow pre-pandemic rally at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum, accepting the president’s accolades for securing the border. But within days, he forfeited his authority to Mexico as he halted the Sanctuary City ban.

It’s far worse to be stabbed in the back by someone masquerading as a Republican, than a candid Leftist.

Duplicitous Ducey is not going to go quietly into the dark night when his current term expires January 1, 2023. He’s got something up his sleeve which could well entail a self-serving party switch as he seeks his next gig.

This post, “AZ Gov. Doug Ducey sells out to China,” details his groundwork, as he recently sold his 11,412 sq. ft. Paradise Valley golf course fairway home situated on 2.14 acres, at a discounted rate of $8,150,000. It includes a link to this World Tribune commentary by Joe Schaeffer, “Arizona Gov. Ducey to China: ‘Lots of opportunities’ to exploit ‘our defense industry, mining and ores.’” To call it enlightening would be the height of understatement.
