Arizona Republicans lost the last two U.S. Senate races.
Four statewide offices are held by Democrats.
Democrats are as close as they’ve been in five decades to taking control of the state House.
The Arizona Republican Party is officially at war with the state’s chief executive.
And while Donald Trump is back in Florida after his defeat, he continues to seek a place on the national political stage.
But as far as Gov. Doug Ducey is concerned, the GOP is in great shape. And he’s counting on a Biden presidency to turn around the party’s fortunes in 2022 and beyond.
“I believe that the Republican Party has a lot of things to be hopeful about,” Ducey said in an interview with Capitol Media Services. “There’s a lot of signs of optimism.”
