Arizona State Senator Steve Farley (D-LD9) filed paperwork today to challenge Governor Doug Ducey. He has set this coming Monday to make the announcement official.
Although the Tucson lawmaker - the Democratic officeholder bearing the closest physical resemblance to Ducey - has not yet filed his campaign committee with the Arizona Secretary of State, he did register "Farley for Governor" with the Arizona Corporation Commission today.
Farley sent an email out this afternoon setting June 5 for his "outlin(ing) a new vision for the Grand Canyon state."
Speculation about Farley's gubernatorial aspirations began (in earnest) last December. The 54-year old is serving his 3rd term in the State Senate (currently as Assistant Minority Leader) after an equal stint in the State House.
