Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat who has faced a barrage of criticism from Republicans about the 2020 election, is running for governor, she announced in a video Wednesday morning.
That’s why I’m running.”I’m running for Governor to deliver transparency, accountability, and results for Arizonans -- just like I’ve done my whole career.
As the state’s top election official, Hobbs was a frequent target of stolen election conspiracy theories and was harassed and threatened for her work and defense of the state's system.
President Joe Biden won the state in 2020 by approximately 10,000 votes and numerous state and county reviews and audits have revealed that the election system was secure and produced accurate results.
Hobbs has positioned herself as a key defender of the state’s election system and opponent of the audit and her announcement video suggests she will seek to capitalize on that fight in her bid.
