PHOENIX — Two top aides to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey are moving on.

Ducey's office announced Thursday that Chief of Staff Daniel Scarpinato will join a Washington-based advertising and political consulting firm and that Deputy Chief of Staff Gretchen Conger will head to Arkansas to serve as a senior adviser on Sarah Huckabee Sanders' campaign for governor.

Both Scarpinato and Conger have served on Ducey's staff since he took office in 2015.

Ducey was re-elected in 2018 to a second term and term limits bar him from running for re-election in 2022.

Ducey tweeted Thursday morning that Daniel Ruiz would be taking the position as his new Chief of Staff.
