GOP Consultant Calls Hobbs Democratic Front Runner

PHOENIX—In the wake of Secretary Katie Hobbs’ announcement for governor yesterday, GOP political consultant Stan Barnes praised Hobbs on KTAR News as the “automatic front runner” among Democratic candidates.

Secretary Hobbs’ long record of getting things done and delivering results for Arizonans has put her in control of the Democratic primary–even Republicans know this.


Jim Sharpe: “You’ve officially got Katie Hobbs, who is the automatic front runner, am I right Stan?”

Steve Barnes: “On the democratic side, yes. She’s Secretary of State, a proven likeable person, and she’s got great democratic credentials.”
