Katie Hobbs has won the Democratic primary for governor of Arizona
In Arizona, while Katie Hobbs easily won the Democratic nomination for governor, a race between political newcomers Kari Lake and Karrin Taylor Robson is too close to call.
The Democratic primary for Hobbs was called almost immediately after the first round of results were announced, according to the Associated Press.
Hobbs, who made a name for herself as Arizona secretary of state by defending the integrity of the 2020 election, will face one of two possible Republicans, neither of whom has positive things to say about the election two years ago.
Kari Lake, a former local newscaster who spent much of the campaign repeating former President Trump’s election lies, or Karrin Taylor Robson, a wealthy land developer, will be her opponent. Former President George H.W. Bush has endorsed Lake, while former Vice President Mike Pence has endorsed Taylor Robson.
