PHOENIX – Two former Arizona governors have signed on to help Republican Karrin Taylor Robson in her bid for the 2022 office.

Republicans Fife Symington and Jan Brewer will serve as co-chairs of Taylor Robson’s campaign, it was announced Monday.

“Gov. Brewer and Gov. Symington truly embody what it means to put conservative principles into action,” Taylor Robson said in a press release.

“I cannot think of two conservative leaders better equipped than Govs. Brewer and Symington to lead my campaign for Arizona governor, and I am proud and humbled to have their support.”

Brewer ran the state from 2009-2015. She first assumed office to finish the term of Democrat Janet Napolitano, who left to serve as secretary of Homeland Security in the Obama administration.

Brewer then was elected to a full term in 2010.

Symington led Arizona from 1990-1997 and has not been in public service since he resigned from the governorship.

Taylor Robson, a member of the Arizona Board of Regents and a seasoned political fundraiser, entered the race in May. She is the founder and president of Phoenix-based land use strategy company Arizona Strategies.
