The Arizona Clean Elections Commission has rejected Katie Hobbs’ proposal for separate “town hall-style interviews”, instead of a debate.

Kari Lake posted the news on Twitter.

“The @AZCCEC rejected @katiehobbs cowardice proposal. There WILL be a debate, let’s see if my opponent shows up!”

The Gateway Pundit reported previously that Katie Hobbs responded to the invitation, requesting a new format where each candidate conducts a separate thirty-minute town hall-style interview.

From the Gateway Pundit:

Lake: Well, the deadline was today, and my opponent, Katie Hobbs, has officially declined the debate. Hobbs is so terrified that I might bring up the fact that she is a twice-convicted racist and that her racism cost the Arizona taxpayers nearly $3 million.

She doesn’t have one single policy to stand on, not one. I made it unbelievably easy for her. She picks the date, the time, the moderator. She even had the chance to write all of the questions, but she would rather hide from the voters and let Soros and other dark money groups pour millions of dollars into attack ads against me. That’s her plan. Well, Katie, it didn’t work in the primary, and it’s not going to work in the general either. Arizona, Hobbs thinks so little of you that she isn’t even going to campaign and try to earn your vote, but I sure will. Please visit, come on out, and meet me, and then ask me your tough questions. You can grill me, seriously. I’m applying for a job, and you are the hiring manager. Unlike Katie Hobbs, I will not be hiding. Quite the contrary, I will be out every single day meeting my future bosses, you the people of Arizona. I hope I get to see you out there on the campaign trail soon.


Yesterday Kari sent a letter to the AZ Clean Elections Commission, in which she called on them to reject Katie Hobb’s proposal to change the debate format and for her employee, Amy Chan, to recuse herself from the decision.

Kari Lake War Room posted a tweet notifying followers that Katie Hobbs’ staffer, Amy Chan, had recused herself from AZCCEC matters involving the Gubernatorial debate, per Kari Lake’s request.

Kari Lake posted the following tweet, after the Commission’s rejection of Katie Hobbs’ proposal.

“I will be taking part in the debate format I already agreed to, and if Katie Hobbs grows a spine between now and October 12th, she is welcome to join me!”
