Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey, who has reportedly raised more than $2 million for his campaign war chest, will start airing a new ad on Tucson airwaves tomorrow.

The ad, called "Plan", will run for several days on Tucson networks affiliates (and in Phoenix too.) Records show the Ducey campaign will spend $35,000 locally to air the new ads.

The campaign spent an additional $95,000 in Phoenix area, FCC records show.

In a letter to supporters, Ducey said his campaign has raised more than $2 million. 

"As you know, our last fundraising period closed on Saturday. I’m pleased to report that we passed the $2 million mark for the campaign!" a letter to supporters stated. "Most importantly, we passed that threshold with a surge of last-minute contributions. We raised more than $200,000 in the last two weeks alone, which reaffirms the momentum we have and the enthusiasm I feel every day on the campaign trail."


(Doug Ducey, speaking directly to the camera)

Let me tell you specifically what I will do as governor. You can read my plan. As governor, I'll defend Arizona's border. I'll lower taxes to create jobs and eliminate unnecessary regulations. I'll put parents in charge of their kid's education and kids will know their American history and civics as a requirement of graduation. Most importantly, I'll stand up to the Obama administration. Go to to read my detailed plan."


"Paid for Ducey 2014."
