PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey will attend the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as president and vice president, the Republican governor announced Thursday.
In the wake of insurrection that disrupted the formal process to certify Biden's victory last week, it’s never been more important to observe the peaceful transfer of power, Ducey said in a statement.
“I will not agree with him on everything and I certainly will not hesitate to share my views on the public policy issues that matter to Arizonans, but I believe President-elect Biden is a good man and wants to serve his country,” Ducey said. "I look forward to working with his administration and advocating for the people of Arizona.”
Ducey was a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump but took heat from the president and many of his supporters when he signed the certification of Arizona’s election results showing a narrow win for Biden, a Democrat.
