PHOENIX —  Arizona state treasurer candidates Kimberly Yee and Martin Quezada faced off in a debate Monday night.

Yee, the incumbent Republican, was elected in 2018, becoming the first Asian American elected to statewide office in Arizona.

Here’s her last appearance on KTAR News:

Quezada, a Democrat, was elected to the Arizona State Senate in 2014 and was re-elected in 2016, 2018 and 2020.

Quezada was unopposed in his primary election, while Yee defeated Jeff Weninger, a member of the Arizona House of Representatives.

Monday’s debate was 30 minutes with Ted Simons of Arizona PBS and reporter Stacey Barchenger of the Arizona Republic moderating.

The Citizens Clean Elections Commission sponsors debates for all contested statewide and legislative races as part of its voter education responsibilities. The nonpartisan board was created as part of the Clean Elections Act passed by voters in 1998.
