Newly unearthed pictures from Arizona’s Democratic gubernatorial nominee, Katie Hobbs’s high school yearbook revealed that the school conducted a ‘Slave Day’ during its spirit week while Hobbs served on the student council board and her opponent Kari Lake said it was just another example of Hobbs’s racist record.
“Katie Hobbs’ record of racism, which already cost Arizona taxpayers $2.75 million after she was twice convicted of racist behavior, goes back to high school.
