PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Arizona Board of Regents member Karrin Taylor Robson says she’s running for Arizona governor in 2022. The announcement came just hours after Arizona State Treasurer Kimberly Yee announced her plans to run. Both Robson and Yee are Republicans.
Robson made her announcement in a video posted Monday.
“Karrin advocates for building and sustaining a dynamic and diverse economy, protecting property rights, creating value in real estate, developing a world-class education system with options for all types of learners, fostering civic engagement, and supporting the men and women who serve in our military. She has dedicated her life to fighting for our conservative values, and she is committed to do whatever it takes to defend Arizona from the radical left,” explains Robson’s campaign website.
Robson has been a member of the Arizona Board of Regents that oversees Arizona’s three state universities – Arizona State, University of Arizona, and Northern Arizona University – since 2017. She is also the founder and president of Arizona Strategies, which is a land-use strategy firm in Phoenix.
“In just a few months, we’ve seen the direction Joe Biden and Kamala Harris want to take this country, and as Arizonans, we need to fight back,” Robson said. “We going to fight for Arizona values” and vowed to “fight the “radical Biden-Harris agenda.”
Because of term limits, Gov. Doug Ducey cannot run in 2022.
