In order to keep from being asked questions by an activist, AZ State Secretary Katie Hobbs slipped inside a restaurant bathroom. She didn’t come out until a member of staff and a car pulled up to pick her up.
As Hobbs, the Democratic candidate for gov. of AZ looked to be eating outside of a restaurant, a member of the activist group PVA, that is known for its secret camera operations, confronted her. Hobbs immediately hurried to leave after PVA communications director R.C. Maxwell introduced hisself, spilling her glass while in the process.
In an effort to get some information from Hobbs, Maxwell asked her about comments she and her staff had made in the PVA operations aimed against the Hobbs team.
“Director Hobbs?” Maxwell came up to Hobbs and inquired.
“How are things going? My name is Maxwell, and I didn’t mean to frighten you back there,” he continued. “I just have a question I would like to ask you about,”
You have a lovely day today, Hobbs said, before leaving the outdoor dining area after she spilled her drink. Maxwell followed after her.
Maxwell said, “I just wanted to ask you about some comments you made on the undercover tape about hating to talk about politics, ma’am. He was referring to a secret tape of which Hobbs can be heard talking about the story of how she refused to discuss her job with an Uber driver since she did not want to speak about politics with “anyone that I do not know.”
Hobbs began to walk up the street while trying to avoid Maxwell’s questions. Later the footage from the camera shows her trying to get away from the confrontation by going into the restroom at the restaurant. Afterwards, a familiar person came and rescued her by leading her past Maxwell and out of the restaurant to a vehicle that was waiting.
Hobbs has refused to have a face-to-face discussion with GOP Kari Lake. Hobbs has said Lake is a “conspiracy theorist” and also said that any debate with Lake would end in anarchy. Hobbs has asked for a structure that would resemble back-to-back town hall meetings with each contender in place of a debate.
Hobbs blasted Lake for refusing to take part in a debate. Although Lake had offered it, Hobbs never consented to make the decisions for the debate’s guidelines.
“I made it incredibly very easy for her. She picks the date, time, and moderator. She even was given the opportunity to prepare all of the inquiries, but Lake said in a campaign tape that appeared online in Sept that she would rather hide from the public and let Soros as well as other money in politics spend millions on attack ads against me.”
