TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - After Super Tuesday, we will get a much better look at who may represent each party in the upcoming presidential elections.

For months, Donald Trump has made headlines for both his policy ideas and comments about fellow republican hopefuls. Competitors like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have fired back recently.

During his visit to Tucson on Monday, Nine On Your Side caught up with Arizona Governor, Doug Ducey, to talk about upcoming elections. In response to a question about the republican party and all the commotion involved this year, he says he is focused on Arizona and not national politics.

"These folks are running for the job of president of the United States and I hope we will see that kind of primary moving forward," said Ducey.

While Super Tuesday is one of the biggest days for presidential primary elections, Arizonans will have the opportunity to case their ballots in the presidential preference election on March 22.

Democrats and Republicans can vote in the preference elections, but registered independents are not allowed. We asked the governor if he could see that changing in the future.

"I do like our two party system, I think it's important, I think you can really see the differences, and in terms of process issues I leave that to the party chairmen and those individuals," said Ducey.
