After vowing to rescind Nike deal, Arizona gov now says state is ‘open for business’

Declaring at the time that he was “embarrassed for Nike,” the Republican declared he had “ordered the Arizona Commerce Authority to withdraw all financial incentive dollars under their discretion that the State was providing for the company to locate here.”

The following week, however, he described such an investment as “good news for Arizona” and the city of Goodyear.

“Over $184 million in capital investment,” Ducey tweeted. “Arizona is open for business, and we welcome [Nike] to our state.”
