2022 Arizona superintendent of public instruction race: The candidates

Here are the candidates for Arizona's superintendent of public instruction race in the 2022 midterms.

Kathy Hoffman

Party: Democrat
Website:  electkathyhoffman.com

Kathy Hoffman is running for reelection after winning as a first-time candidate in 2018. She previously worked as a pre-school teacher and a speech-language pathologist. As superintendent, she’s been a strong advocate of public schools and an opponent of expanding access to Empowerment Scholarship Accounts, Arizona’s school voucher program.

Tom Horne

Party: Republican
Website:  electtomhorne.com

Tom Horne is running for an office he previously held for eight years, serving from 2003 to 2011. After that he was elected as Arizona’s Attorney General, but lost a re-election bid amid allegations of campaign finance violations and an FBI investigation that unveiled an extra-marital affair. Seeking public office once more, Horne is running on a platform to fight critical race theory, stop cancel culture and promote patriotism.
