Arizona Democrat gubernatorial candidate David Garcia appears to have committed a potential fatal flaw for his campaign this week by saying he wants to abolish ICE, says a new op-ed in the Arizona Republic.
Columnist Laurie Roberts writes that Garcia’s decision to join the radical “abolish ICE” movement, spearheaded by a New York socialist, is “crazy” and won’t gain “much traction with Arizona voters.” Garcia’s radical position stands in stark contrast to that of Governor Doug Ducey, who continues to work to keep Arizonans safe. Just yesterday, Ducey published an op-ed explaining why abolishing ICE would be a reckless decision.
This is yet another instance of David Garcia revealing his deeply held fringe beliefs. Garcia has already said he will support a radical environmentalist agenda to double the cost of monthly electric bills, and recently wrote on Facebook that his campaign was “built just like” the socialist campaign of New York’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
