Kimberly Yee

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Republican and current Arizona State Treasurer Kimberly Yee announced Monday that she will be running for governor of Arizona.

"I'm running for Governor to put Arizona first, to ensure our children have the same opportunities and freedoms my family found here, and that starts with securing our southern border." Kimberly Yee said.

"My family's story is about legal immigration in this great country, where they found success by opening a grocery store in Arizona in the 1930s that thrived and served the community for over 60 years. But today, opportunities like theirs are under attack by socialists, woke corporations, and corrupt, establishment politicians. Join me in securing the freedoms and values that have made our country great and putting Arizona first," Yee said.

According to her website, Yee plans to run with pro-life, pro-second amendment, border security, and election security in mind.

The election to elect the next Arizona Governor will be November 8, 2022. The current governor, Doug Ducey, has served two consecutive terms of eight years, making him ineligible to run again in 2022. The announcement was made on a video on her website, and the full announcement can be found here.
