The 2014 Arizona Secretary of State election took place on November 4, 2018, to elect the Secretary of State of Arizona, concurrently with other statewide elections, including for governor and U.S. House.

Incumbent Republican Secretary of State Ken Bennett was term-limited and ineligible to run for a third term in office. He instead ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination for governor. Republican nominee Michele Reagan succeeded Bennett and won the election against Democratic challenger Terry Goddard.

Candidates

Campaign

Wil Cardon was initially considered the front-runner, but support for him collapsed in the wake of revelations that six of his siblings were suing him for more than $6 million of family money that they allege he used in his campaign for the U.S. Senate in 2012, despite it not being his to use.[3]
