The news in Arizona on Sunday was that the huge orange chunk of human feces was coming to town, but THERE ARE REPUBLICANS FOR KATIE!
Katie Hobbs, Democratic gubernatorial candidate of Arizona, held a rally of REPUBLICANS at Barry Goldwater Memorial Park in Paradise Valley on Sunday afternoon. Hobbs has the support of many sensible Republicans and would likely have Barry’s support.
The most prominent Republican supporting Hobbs is Liz Cheney who did not attend the event, but spoke earlier at ASU:
“I don’t know if I ever voted for a Democrat, but if I lived in Arizona now, I absolutely would”
“We can’t empower people who told us they wouldn’t honor elections,” said Republican U.S. Representative Liz Cheney. said this week at Arizona State University. “I don’t know if I’ve ever voted for a Democrat, but if I was living in Arizona now, I absolutely would…for governor and for secretary of state.”
Arizona has a history of Republicans who simply had enough and threw their support behind the Democrats. The biggest was in 2020, Cindy McCain, wife of the late John McCain, threw her support behind Biden, campaigned for him and spoke at the Democratic convention. Biden won Arizona by just over 10,000 votes. Cindy helped.
The first speaker at the Republicans for Hobbs event was the mayor of the very conservative Mesa, John Giles:
It’s not a choice between Republicans and Democrats, it’s a choice between sanity and chaos. »
“We have some very significant issues facing our state right now. Owater, housing, support for public education, finding solutions to our transport infrastructure problems. Katie Hobbs is the right person to help us meet these challenges. »
He then lambasted the election denial and delusional claims of Hobbs opponent Kari Lake.
Karie Dozer, the communications director for diminished former AG Republican Grant Woods, who broke ranks in 2016 and 2020 backing Clinton and Biden:
Karie Dozer issued a call to action to tell friends and family about the issues in the upcoming election, warning that Arizona’s future hangs in the balance. She praised Hobbs’ track record serving her community as a social worker, state legislator and secretary of state.

Monica Villalobos, President and CEO of the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce added:
“Secretary Hobbs, you and I do not and will not agree on everything, bBut we both believe that Arizona is better than a soundbite. We deserve leaders engaged in lively yet respectful conversations. And I have no doubt that we will have many.
Katie Hobbs stated the obvious when you have Republicans coming out of the woodwork to support a Democrat:
“I bet many of you never thought you’d be out here campaigning with a Democrat to be our next governor, bBut the support we’ve seen from Republicans, independents, people who have never been involved in politics before, speaks to the threat that Kari Lake poses if she were our next governor. And we’re not going to let that happen.

Speak Democratic Governors Association even former Governor Brewer has issues with Lake:
Lake struggled to unite the Arizona GOP, with the former Arizona GOP governor. Jan Brewer saying she and Lake still haven’t met: “[Lake] kind of indicated that she didn’t really want to talk to me or sit down and discuss some of the issues. Earlier this week, Brewer said some of Lake’s claims in this election left her “speechless” while reiterating that she had not yet sat down with Lake but had lunch with Hobbs.
Democrats, Independents and Republicans agree that Lake, Finchem, Hanadeh and Masters would be a threat to Arizona and the country. We can stop this.
