Governor before election

Rose Mofford

Elected Governor

Fife Symington

The 1990 Arizona gubernatorial election took place on November 6, 1990, for the post of Governor of Arizona. Republican Fife Symington defeated the Democratic nominee and Mayor of Phoenix Terry Goddard. Because no candidate received a majority of votes, a runoff election was held later on February 26, 1991, which Symington also won. This is the only election where Arizona used a runoff election.

Evan Mecham, a former governor who was removed from office in 1988 upon being convicted in his impeachment trial, unsuccessfully ran for another term. His replacement and incumbent Governor, Rose Mofford, declined to run for a full term.
