Ducey gets COVID-19, won’t visit Arizona border with Pence
PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has tested positive for COVID-19 and won’t attend a planned political event Monday with former Vice President Mike Pence, his spokesman said.
Ducey is asymptomatic and feels well, spokesman C.J. Karamargin said.
The Republicans had planned a border visit Monday morning, and then Pence plans to give a midday border security speech in Phoenix.
Both are working to amplify GOP messaging on border issues that they see as a potent political issue. Ducey co-leads the Republican Governors Association. Pence is seen as a possible 2024 presidential candidate.
