Election Deniers Running for Statewide Office

In Arizona, only one candidate running for statewide office in 2024 has questioned the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Rene Lopez | Corporation Commission candidate
Lopez is running to serve on the Arizona Corporation Commission, an elected position for the state’s public utilities regulatory agency. In 2022, when he ran in the GOP primary for a U.S. House seat in Congressional District 4, he expressed doubt about the integrity of the 2020 presidential election and made allegations of fraud (at 26:53 in this PBS debate video). Arizona Central also considered him to be an “election questioner” at the time.
