“I’ve got a relationship with the president and when there’s a need in Arizona, I talk to him directly,” Ducey said during a July 9 press conference. “We’ve had so much outreach personally from both the president and the vice president that I had to change the ringtone on my phone. And it rings ‘Hail to the Chief,’ because I didn’t want to miss another phone call directly from the White House to help the state of Arizona.”
And so it seems the Republican Governor of Arizona may have ignored a call from Trump or Pence during the ceremony to certify Arizona’s election results awarding the state to Joe Biden.
The signing also signified that Democrat Mark Kelly was replacing Republican Martha McSally in the Senate race. Trump seemed to have noticed.
“You have a governor named Ducey who just rushed, couldn’t have gone faster, he just rushed to sign certificates so that Kelly gets into the Senate as soon as possible,” Trump said.
“Why would he sign when you have these incredible hearings going on that’s showing such corruption and such horrible fraud on the American people of Arizona?” Trump continued. “So you have to figure out, what’s that all about with Ducey?”
