Former Vice President Mike Pence has backed a candidate in the Republican Arizona governor race, creating another direct contest between himself and former President Donald Trump, who has backed a different candidate.

Pence has endorsed Karrin Taylor Robson, a former member of the Arizona Board of Regents who is also endorsed by outgoing Governor Doug Ducey.

Trump has enforced Kari Lake, a former news anchor who has never held an elected office before.

Both Robson and Lake have alleged issues with the 2020 election, where Biden edged out Trump by less than half a percent. Ducey notoriously refused Trump’s calls to decertify Arizona’s election results, which Lake has repeatedly brought up during her campaign.

Polls have consistently showed Robson behind Lake.
