Up for election in the Fall are most Arizona statewide offices (Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Treasurer, Mine Inspector, 2 seats on Az Corporation Commission).

There are only two contested races between Democrats in the Arizona Primary on August 2, 2022. These are listed below.



Az Secretary of State Katie Hobb vs. former Nogales Mayor Marco Lopez

Secretary of State:

LD 27 House Rep. Reginald Bolding (also House Minority Leader) vs. former Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes

Watch the AZ Citizens Clean Election Commission debates between these candidates if you can’t decide how to vote in the Arizona Dem Primary:

Governor (held on June 30): Elections 2022 debates: Democratic candidates for governor – Arizona PBS (azpbs.org)

Secretary of State (held on April 20): https://azpbs.org/horizon/2022/04/2022-az-secretary-of-state-debate/

Pima County Democratic Party also held two forums in person/zoom for these two contested races – Sec. of State on May 15 and Governor on June 5.

Sec. of State Katie Hobbs declined to participate in both the PCDP forum on June 5 and the Clean Elections debate on June 30, so only Gubernatorial candidate Marco Lopez was interviewed in both.

Other Democrats running (uncontested) statewide:

Attorney General:  Kris Mayes (former AZ Corporation Commissioner)

Treasurer:  LD 29 State Senator Martin Quezada

Superintendent of Public Instruction: Kathy Hoffman (incumbent)

Corporation Commission:  Sandra Kennedy (incumbent), and Lauren Kuby (Tempe Councilwoman)

Mine Inspector: no Democrat is running

Vote wisely on or before August 2.  Early ballots go out on July 6, 2022.
