Katie Hobbs’ interview on KTAR Monday evening was another reminder that she isn’t being honest with voters about who she is.
Hobbs initially remained silent about Joe Biden’s dangerous decision to lift Title 42, a vital tool that allows us to expel illegal immigrants more quickly … but, since then, she’s been changing her position every few weeks:
- In early April, Hobbs rubber-stamped Biden’s decision to lift Title 42, falsely claiming during a television interview that “Title 42 isn’t working.”
- In late April, under political pressure, Hobbs took the opposite position and said that lifting Title 42 would be “a disaster.”
- On Monday, two weeks later, Hobbs was back to square one, arguing during a radio interview that Title 42 “is not a border policy” and that it “isn’t working.”
The radio hosts’ exchange with Hobbs about her radical pro-abortion record didn’t go very well, either:
- Hobbs defended her recent tweet, “F— the patriarchy,” in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s leaked draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson. Hobbs said that she was “outraged” and that “this is not a surprise.”
- Hobbs argued that a 15-week ban on abortion “absolutely is extreme.”
- Asked how long would be appropriate for an abortion ban, Hobbs wouldn’t even provide a time range. She called abortion a “constitutional freedom” and said that “I don’t think we should be talking about ‘weeks’ here.” (Hobbs refused to take a position on a 24-week abortion ban last month.)
These fringe responses should worry every Arizonan who believes that our state needs common-sense conservative leadership.
It is imperative that Republicans defeat Hobbs in November – and her desperate attack on Matt Salmon during the same interview is yet another piece of evidence that Salmon is the proven Republican to get the job done.
