Democrat Hobbs refuses to discuss conspiracy theorist Lake in Arizona Governor Race


Democratic Candidate Katie Hobbs announced Sunday that she will not discuss the GOP challenger in the contest to be Arizona’s next governor.

“Unfortunately, debating a conspiracy theorist like Kari Lake – whose entire campaign platform is to cause enormous chaos and make Arizona the subject of national ridicule – would only lead to constant interruptions, pointless distractions, and childish name-calling,” Nicole DeMont is the campaign manager for Hobbs said in an announcement.

“Arizonans deserve so much better than Kari Lake, and that’s why we’re confident Katie Hobbs will be elected our next governor.”

Instead, the Democratic nominee will take part in an informal town-hall format event at which each candidate is being questioned in separate ways in the announcement.


It is believed that the Hobbs campaign was in response in a way to the Citizens Clean Elections Commission, which is a state-wide commission that supervises and arranges debates.

The commission rejected last week the request of Hobbs to hold separate town hall telecasts events. It also granted all candidates seven days to reach an agreement in the October debate.

Hobbs’s decision made on Sunday is likely to end the possibility of a debate ahead of elections in November, expected as an open tossup.

Hobbs’s campaign has pointed to a debate in which the Hobbs campaign has referred at an event in debate in June GOP primary debate in which Lake claimed that the 2020 election was rigged and that Democrats are likely to be a fraud in the coming election, as evidence of any debate could be an unfinished business.

However, Hobbs refusing to discuss could strengthen Lake’s assertions that her opponent is scared of confrontation.

“It’s becoming more and more apparent that Hobbs’s strategy is to conceal from Me as well as the Press as well as the Voters throughout this campaign and then run all hours on citizens of Arizona
