Katie Hobbs Career

State legislature

Katie was elected to the Arizona House of Representatives in 2010 and credited her interest in politics to Emerge Arizona. She was also inspired to run for office by the people she assisted as a social worker, believing they were not being heard by the government. Hobbs advocates ending domestic violence.

She was elected to the Arizona State in 2012, where she worked two terms as a minority leader. In 2015, in her first term as minority leader, Senate Staffer Talonya Adams, a black woman, complained to her about her concerns about racial discrimination and was later fired, in part, by Katie. Adams then won a discrimination lawsuit related to her firing and was awarded a judgment of $2.75 million, in November 2021.

Arizona Secretary of State

Hobbs revealed her candidacy for Arizona Secretary of State on March 8, 2017. In the 2018 election, she challenged Republican nominee Steve Gaynor. The Associated Press prematurely called the race for Gaynor on November 6, 2018. With the race as close as it was, neither Hobbs nor Gaynor initially claimed victory. Gaynor’s lead narrowed as more and more ballots were counted in the days to come. Hobbs was then officially declared the winner by a margin of 20,000 votes on November 16. She became the first Democrat to hold the position since 1995. As Secretary of State, she stood first in the line of succession to Governor Doug Ducey, and Arizona has no lieutenant governor.

2020 Arizona election audit

The Arizona Senate Republican majority provided $150,000 to fund an audit focused on contesting the 2020 presidential election results in Maricopa County in 2021. In a six-page letter, she wrote that the audit’s chain of custody was lacking, calling it ”a significant departure from standard best practices.” Hobbs added that its procedures appeared ”better suited for chasing conspiracy theories than as a part of a professional audit”. In response, she received death threats, and the Arizona Department of Public Safety assigned personnel to guard her and her staff.

Her complaints were echoed in a letter to the State Senate President Karen Fann from the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, which has a Republican majority of 4-1. Fann, referring to one of Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud, contended that the county had deleted a whole database. The Board responded in a letter calling the accusations ”false, defamatory, and beneath the dignity of the Senate.” It also accused the Arizona Senate of ”conspiracy theories that fuel the fundraising schemes of those pulling your strings.” Fann responded that the audit would continue when the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum site was next available.

Response

Following consulting with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the Election Assistance Commission (EAC), Katie said she was told that it was impossible to know whether the voting machines the county turned over in response to the Senate subpoena had been compromised, and Dominion Voting Systems should re-certify them for future use. While the Arizona Senate’s contractor was in possession of the machines that had been subpoenaed, the county spent more than $20,000 to lease other machines in order to conduct 2 local elections. The costs of re-certifying the surrendered machines following their return would be in the six-figure range. However, the Senate signed an agreement with the county that said the county is not liable for any damages to the equipment while in the Senate’s custody, so it is unclear whether the county would be liable for the costs.

2022 gubernatorial election

In October 2020, Katie revealed her candidacy for governor in the 2022 Arizona gubernatorial election. Incumbent Governor Doug Ducey is term-limited. Hobbs defeated Marco A. Lopez Jr. in the Democratic primary election to become the nominee and skipped the main debate with him. She opted not to debate the Republican nominee, Kari Lake, to deny Lake a platform to spread election denialism. Katie defeated Lake.
