Yvonne Wingett Sanchez | The Republic

Arizona Democrats got their first side-by-side look at the candidates vying for their party’s nomination for governor during a Saturday forum where they assailed Republican Gov. Doug Ducey’s policies and political connections more than each other.

Hundreds of Democrats filled an auditorium to hear state Sen. Steve Farley of Tucson and Arizona State University education-leadership professor David Garcia of Phoenix on issues ranging from public education and school vouchers to health care, Confederate monuments and President Donald Trump.

The one-hour forum, hosted by the Maricopa County Democratic Party, was the first of the 2018 cycle, kicking off Arizona Democrats’ first competitive primary for governor since 2002.
