Lake Tries Best Political Theatre, But Hobbs Still Won’t Debate

Kari Lake, the Arizona GOP Senate nominee and former TV news personality, is trying her best political theater to get Democrat rival Katie Hobbs to debate her, even vowing Sunday to take the debate stage alone.

  • Last week, Lake took a front row seat at a town hall-style event before Hobbs was to speak, despite reportedly being told she have to wait backstage for her turn to speak while Hobbs took the stage.
  • Hobb said Sunday morning on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that she has “no desire of the spectacle that [Lake] looking to create,” echoing previous comments on the matter.
  • She also reportedly said her campaign schedule as “pretty much set” and that’s she’s “happy with where we are.”
  • The Trump-backed Lake also about on the show, saying she plans to show up to a debate next week even without her opponent.
  • “I would love it if she would show up, because I think there’s a lot of important issues the people of Arizona need to hear about,” Lake said.
