Arizona GOP gubernatorial heavyweight candidate Kari Lake stopped by Fox & Friends to discuss the difficulty she’s had getting opponent Democratic candidate Katie Hobbs on the debate stage; Lake is calling her “basement Hobbs.”
“She can’t even string a couple of words together,” Lake told host Ainsley Earhardt.
“She was asked a softball question a couple of weeks ago. Name one good thing about the Latino community. And she spent the entire minute and a half….and couldn’t come up with one thing. So I think she knows why she won’t debate. It would be like a birthday cake versus a chainsaw if she showed up.”
“Lake argued that Hobbs is ‘taking a page out of Biden’s playbook’ by avoiding debates and failing to draw large crowds at her public events. Recent polls show Lake leading in a close race, but the former local news anchor believes the race is clearly breaking in her favor,” Fox News reports.
“We drew 3,500 people to a rally and a concert that we had on Saturday night,” said Lake.
“Conversely, my opponent had her biggest campaign event of the season and there were 15 people there. These polls are not close. … We have a movement and nothing’s going to stop it.”
