Democrat Katie Hobbs on Friday declined to agree to a televised debate with Republican Kari Lake as both seek the Arizona governor’s office, instead proposing individual interviews with the moderator.
The campaign manager for Hobbs, who is currently secretary of state, pointed to a raucous debate between the four Republicans vying for their party’s nomination in the Aug. 2 primary for her decision.
“Secretary Hobbs firmly believes that Arizonans deserve every opportunity to evaluate candidates for public office and hear their visions for the future of our state – without constant interruptions, pointless distractions, childish name-calling, tired conspiracy theories, and demonstrably false accusations,” Nicole DeMont.

Whoa whoa whoa. @KariLake gets called out for backing a guy who says “Jews Are Evil” and her clap back is to try and smear me? Bad idea, Kari. I will make you two promises: 1) you’ll never be governor; and 2) I will now make sure millions know you’re anti-Semitic. https://t.co/dxtXhAIN8X

I’m hoping our current Governor won’t torture us again with any Mandates or Executive Orders over “Monkey Pox”
Rest assured that if he does, they will be ripped to shreds the moment I take office.
Right after I issue a Declaration of Invasion. This is a promise, Arizona.
