The news is that Katie Hobbs may be preparing to skip out on debating her opponent, the MAGA candidate Kari Lake, in the upcoming race for Arizona’s governor.
And not for the first time. She refused to debate Marco Lopez in the Democratic primary, and now it appears Hobbs is trying to wiggle out of going one-on-one with Kari Lake in the general election.
“We will be seeking changes to the format to ensure that Arizona voters get a robust policy debate based on fact, instead of regurgitated lies about the 2020 election,” said Hobbs’ campaign spokesman.
“We will not engage in a circus that insults and embarrasses Arizonans. We do not need to look further than the last debate Kari Lake participated in for such an example.”
In other words, she doesn’t want to debate Kari Lake, 52, who worked at Phoenix’s Fox 10 news for 22 years mostly co-anchoring the nightly news. She’s a ballsy, well-informed, Trump-endorsed spitfire. Watch as she throws down the gauntlet — and a lot of shade on her opponent.
It almost makes politics fun again!
