Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, has vetoed numerous bills backed by Republicans.
They include bills attacking election fraud bill and racist "Critical Race Theory."
On Twitter, Ducey stated that "some" of the 22 bills he vetoed on May 28 are "good policy" but that the legislature needs to "focus first on passing a budget. That should be priority one. The other stuff can wait."
One of the vetoed measures, House Bill 2792, would have made it a crime for an election official to sent election ballots to people who didn't request them.
Kelli Ward who heads Arizona's Republican Party tweeted a response:
“Twenty-two bills that the legislative branch worked all session on. Bills that went through the process & passed & went to the executive’s desk. This tyrannical approach is dangerous to what #WeThePeople in AZ support #ElectionIntegrity #StopCRT."
