? AZ-Gov: State Treasurer Doug Ducey decisively won the nasty Aug. 26 Republican primary, but according a recent PPP survey for Progress Now Arizona, the experience left him with a 26-41 favorable rating. What Ducey could definitely use is a nice kumbaya moment with his former rivals, where they say some nice things about him and help him repair his reputation.
Only so far, that's not happening. Former Mesa Mayor Scott Smith, former GoDaddy attorney Christine Jones, and Secretary of State Ken Bennett have each declined to endorse Ducey. They all even ducked the state GOP's unity breakfast on Thursday, which is usually where defeated primary candidates are expected to show up and help heal the party's wounds. None of them sound like they're adamantly opposed to endorsing him: All three said things along the lines of "We have some things we want to discuss first." But Democratic nominee Fred DuVal certainly won't complain if they drag things out a while longer.
