Kari Lake 'Goes There' After Katie Hobbs Blames Her for Alleged Campaign HQ Break-In

As we previously reported, local media outlets in Arizona broke the news Wednesday that the campaign headquarters for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Katie Hobbs had allegedly been broken into sometime late Monday night, with items said to be stolen during the incident.


Though the alleged suspect seen in video images shared by Hobbs’ campaign has not yet been identified and what reportedly happened is still under investigation according to the police, it didn’t take long at all for the Hobbs campaign and the Arizona Democratic party to, without evidence, blame Republican nominee Kari Lake for what they say happened.

“Let’s be clear: for nearly two years Kari Lake and her allies have been spreading dangerous misinformation and inciting threats against anyone they see fit. The threats against Arizonans attempting to exercise their constitutional rights and their attacks on elected officials are the direct result of a concerted campaign of lies and intimidation,” the Hobbs campaign statement read in part.

Not surprisingly, Kari Lake herself has responded accordingly by saying what many on the right thought upon first hearing the news about the alleged break-in, suggesting Hobbs is trying to pull off one of the oldest tricks in the book with less than two weeks to go before Election Day.

“That is absolutely absurd. And are you guys buying that? Are you really buying that? Because this sounds like a Jussie Smollett part two,” Lake told CNN reporter Kate Sullivan after she was asked about the allegation.


Lake then went for the jugular, making sure to weave into her statement the fact that Hobbs won’t debate her. “I can’t believe that she would blame my amazing people or blame me… I don’t even know where her campaign office is,” she said. “I’m assuming it’s in a basement somewhere because that’s where she’s been campaigning.”

When asked by another reporter about Hobbs’ charge, Lake did not back down:

“She’s trying to deflect from her own abysmal campaign and the fact that you know, nobody even knows where her campaign office is,” Lake said when asked again about the incident. “The person who broke in probably didn’t even realize it was a campaign office. It’s really sad. And the fact that you guys are running with this story, shame on you.”

Though RealClearPolitics shows the race between Hobbs and Lake as close, the last three polls taken indicate a clear momentum shift to Lake, with even one Democratic pollster showing her up by four percentage points (outside the MoE) and the most recent one, a FOX 10/InsiderAdvantage survey, showing Lake up by 11.

Democrats and the mainstream media have consistently tried to make this race about Lake’s association with former President Donald Trump, her supposed “election denialism,” and her unconventional way (read: non-politically correct way) of speaking to people, explaining her positions, and destroying Dem/media-driven narratives.


Unfortunately for Hobbs and her defenders, Arizona has a rich history of electing unpredictable, unconventional candidates to higher office — and Lake most definitely fits that bill. And if the most recent polls are a reliable indicator, history could soon be repeating itself in the Grand Canyon State.
