Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney can stand up to Arizona's MAGA slate. Why can't Doug Ducey?

Blake Masters, the GOP U.S. Senate candidate in Arizona, holds a press conference with Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and former Vice President Mike Pence at a school choice event on Oct. 11, 2022.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois on Tuesday endorsed Democrats Katie Hobbs and Adrian Fontes for governor and secretary of state.

“Those who are responsible for the violence on January 6th and those who have pushed the Big Lie since the 2020 election must not gain higher office,” wrote Kinzinger, a member of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the nation’s Capitol. “The fate of our Republic depends on that.”

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming traveled to Arizona last week to warn against voting for Republicans Kari Lake and Mark Finchem, a pair of election deniers who have actually called for arrests of their opponents based upon some fantasy belief that the 2020 election was stolen.

“The first thing that we have to understand is that we’ve never been where we are,” Cheney told a group of ASU students last week. “We’ve never been in a phase, a place where we’re facing this kind of a threat. And that’s because we’re facing a threat from a former president who is attempting to unravel the Republic.”
