State Sen. Steve Far­ley (D) “an­nounced Monday he will run for the nom­in­a­tion to chal­lenge” Gov. Doug Ducey (R). “Far­ley in an email to sup­port­ers touted ‘a vis­ion’ of im­proved edu­ca­tion fund­ing and prom­ised to wel­come ‘new busi­nesses, new ideas and new solu­tions.’” (Na­tion­al Journ­al)

Far­ley in an in­tro­duct­ory video touts his work re­vital­iz­ing Tuc­son and worked “across the aisle,” in­clud­ing with former Gov. Jan Brew­er (R) “to ex­pand health­care to nearly half a mil­lion people.” (re­lease)

Far­ley in his kick­off “said he will fight against any cuts in Medi­caid.” Far­ley also at­tacked Ducey’s sup­port of school vouch­ers. “Pri­or­it­ies like those, he said, are de­signed solely to el­ev­ate Ducey’s polit­ic­al pro­file on the na­tion­al stage.”

Far­ley: “We need some­body who’s go­ing to gov­ern Ari­zona for Ari­zona who doesn’t really have any in­terest at all in na­tion­al of­fice.” (Tuc­son Daily Star)
