Karrin Taylor Robson is running in Arizona’s primary elections, which are scheduled for August 2, 2022. She is competing for the Republican nomination for the governor’s office, in an attempt to fill the office after term-limited Doug Ducey retires.
Taylor Robson, who is in her late 50s, will be going up against Kari Lake, who has been endorsed by former US President Donald Trump. However, outgoing governor Ducey has also pitched in support for Taylor Robson.

Karrin Taylor Robson and politics
Robson says the 2020 elections “weren’t fair,” accusing “liberal judges” of changing the rules late in the cycle and the media and big tech of suppressing conservative voices. But she has stopped short of saying Trump lost because of fraud.
Robson is a lawyer and housing developer who is locking up support from mainstream GOP figures growing increasingly comfortable with breaking from Trump.
In addition to Pence, her supporters include former New Jersey governor Chris Christie and term-limited governor Doug Ducey, who famously silenced a call from Trump while certifying Democrat Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential victory in Arizona.
