With less than two weeks to go before the midterms, a new poll shows Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake having a double-digit lead over Democratic candidate Katie Hobbs in the Grand Canyon State.
The Fox 10 Phoenix and Insider Advantage survey of 550 likely voters from Oct. 24-25 shows Lake at 54 percent compared to Hobbs’ 43 percent.
From Red State:
Lake, who was a former news anchor at Fox 10 Phoenix, has been hitting the campaign trail hard the past few weeks, as she has been holding numerous events across the Phoenix Metropolitan Area and throughout the state. Lake has been on an “Ask Me Anything” tour, held a concert with country singer John Rich and Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn in rural Morristown, Arizona, and her televised interview through the Citizens Clean Elections Commission aired this weekend. Republican Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin and former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard both endorsed her in recent events as well.
While Hobbs has still been campaigning, she has maintained a more low-key presence with arguably less press access.
During a recent appearance, Lake hit Hobbs for being a debate dodger and hiding in a basement —like Joe Biden. Lake is also calling Hobbs a “twice-convicted racist.”
“While minority leader of the State Senate, Katie Hobbs fired a black single mom for asking for equal pay to her white colleagues. She lost two federal judgments for racial & sexual discrimination. Katie Hobbs is a twice-convicted racist & she’s unfit to serve as our Governor,” Lake tweeted along with a video.
