2014 state su­per­in­tend­ent nom­in­ee Dav­id Gar­cia (R) “an­nounced his can­did­acy for gov­ernor on Wed­nes­day, say­ing” Gov. Doug Ducey (R) “is sys­tem­at­ic­ally des­troy­ing pub­lic edu­ca­tion in Ari­zona. … As gov­ernor, Gar­cia said Wed­nes­day, he would more dir­ectly in­flu­ence the state’s fu­ture on pub­lic edu­ca­tion. … Gar­cia is widely seen as a can­did­ate who can rival Ducey on edu­ca­tion policy, but it is un­clear if he can draw fin­an­cial back­ing to match Ducey.” (Ari­zona Re­pub­lic)
