A campaign official and law enforcement officials confirmed that the campaign headquarters of Arizona’s Democratic candidate for governor, and current Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, was broken into this week.
Phoenix police responded Tuesday afternoon to a report of a burglary and learned that items had been taken from the property during the night, according to a statement.
The statement stated that “This is an ongoing investigation with detectives reviewing all security cameras in efforts to identify and locate the subject involved.” The burglary has not led to the identification of any suspects.
According to a source from the Hobbs campaign, CCTV footage shows the man who allegedly broke into the headquarters of the campaign. According to the source, the Hobbs campaign has not been able to get an accurate inventory of what was taken.
Nicole DeMont, Hobbs’ campaign manager, stated in a statement, “Secretary Hobbs has faced hundreds of threats to their lives and violence throughout this campaign.” We have made it clear throughout this race that safety for our staff and the Secretary is our top priority.
DeMont said, “Let’s make it clear: Kari Lake and her comrades have been spreading dangerous misinformation for almost two years and inciting threats towards anyone they see fit.” “The intimidation and lies that have been orchestrated against Arizonans who are trying to exercise their constitutional rights, and the threats they make against elected officials in Arizona are direct results of a coordinated campaign.”
Hobbs will be running against Republican Kari lake for governor in the November midterm elections.
DeMont stated that intimidation “won’t work” and thanked the Phoenix Police Department for keeping Hobbs safe.
It took time to determine which items were removed from the office.
