Katie Hobbs Outlines Plans to Deliver for Arizonans During In-Depth Interview with Arizona PBS
Yesterday, Katie Hobbs sat down for an in-depth conversation on Arizona PBS at Arizona State University about her plans to lower costs, invest in public education, defend reproductive rights, and deliver real results for families.

With families continuing to struggle with rising prices, Hobbs talked about her plans to cut taxes on everyday items like baby formula, school supplies, and over-the-counter medication, as well as offer tax credits for pursuing career and technical education. The interview dove into Katie’s plan to raise the average teacher salary in the state and make sure every child has access to a quality education.
Katie Hobbs also drove home the stark contrast between her and GOP candidate Kari Lake when it comes to who will defend women’s reproductive freedoms as governor.
“The Civil War era ban that criminalizes all abortion, my opponent has said that’s ‘a great law,’ and she’s called women who seek abortion ‘executioners’ and ‘murderers,’” Hobbs said. “I have a 20-year-old daughter, and in 2022, she has less rights than I had 50 years ago.”
Lake was also offered an interview with Arizona PBS but refused to attend, accusing PBS of corruption and suggesting they should be defunded after finding out Hobbs would have an interview with them too.
Lake’s temper tantrum even led to death threats and racial slurs against ASU staff. A school dean had to warn faculty and students to avoid the building where the interview was filming because of her dangerous rhetoric.
DGA Senior Communications Advisor Christina Amestoy said: “The difference between Katie Hobbs and Kari Lake is that Hobbs is a leader who will sit down and discuss her plans on real issues that impact Arizonans while Lake has a meltdown over not being the center of attention. Arizonans deserve a governor who will focus on them, not the spotlight.”
