Kari Lake Campaign Highlights Katie Hobbs’ Racist Actions in New TV Ad

With under two weeks until the November general election, Republican Kari Lake’s campaign for governor released a new TV Ad reminding Arizonans of the past racist actions of Lake’s Democrat opponent, Katie Hobbs.

“Katie Hobbs may try to run from her racist behavior, but she can’t hide her appalling record from the voters of Arizona,” said Lake’s campaign in a statement emailed to reporters. “Arizona’s state employees – and all Arizonans who are proud to call this state home – simply can’t afford to elect a racist to the governor’s office.”

Katie Hobbs’ Yearbook Reveals School Engaged In a ‘Slave Day’ While She Served on Student Council; Kari Lake Called It ‘Cringe-Inducing’

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. The same Katie Hobbs who paid a woman-of-color $30,000 less than her white male counterparts also thought it appropriate to get involved in a cringe-inducing, racist ‘Slave Day’ and disgustingly celebrated it in her yearbook,” Lake said in a press release. This is a clear disappointing and alarming pattern, but this latest bombshell is beyond the pale. Silence and hiding won’t cut it on this one. Katie Hobbs owes it to every Arizonan to come out of hiding and finally take accountability for her troubling record of racism – and if Katie Hobbs won’t come out of hiding to explain herself, then the media owes it to the people of Arizona to find her.”
