Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett has the most political experience of any of the candidates in the race. Bennett first ran for the Prescott City Council when he was just 25 years old in 1985. He went on to serve on the Arizona State Board of Education in the 1990s, served eight years in the Arizona Senate after winning office in 1998 (including a four-year stint as Senate president) and has served six years as Arizona Secretary of State.

Bennett’s platform includes improving schools (while opposing the Common Core learning standards), replacing the state income tax with an expanded sales tax, investing in infrastructure and reducing the regulatory burden on businesses.

Bennett is using the Clean Elections program to fund his campaign. He qualified for $753,000 for his primary campaign earlier this year.
