New Ads Call Out Kari Lake’s ‘Seriously Dangerous’ Ideas to Criminalize Abortion, Spy on Children, and Dismantle the FBI

The two ads unveiled by Katie Hobbs’ campaign and the Arizona Democratic Party use Lake’s own words to highlight her dangerous positions

PHOENIX – Secretary of State Katie Hobbs’ campaign for governor and the Arizona Democratic Party unveiled the latest ads in their “Seriously Dangerous” series that highlights the extreme ideas Kari Lake wants to impose on the state if she were to be elected governor. The ads are airing on television and digital devices across the state.

The first ad, titled “She’s Serious,” calls out Lake for some of her most unhinged stances, including criminalizing abortion, putting cameras in classrooms to spy on Arizona’s school children, and dismantling the nation’s top law enforcement agency.

The second ad, “1901,” delves deeper into her extreme positions on reproductive health care, including her full-throated endorsement of Arizona’s pre-statehood law that bans all abortions with no exceptions for rape and incest and requires prison time for anyone who helps a woman seek an abortion.

Lake has doubled down on her extreme stances – even as her ultra-MAGA peers attempt to backtrack on the positions that won them the primary election. The Arizona Democratic Party sponsored the two ads, which represent a seven-figure investment to inform Arizona voters of the danger Lake poses to the state if elected.
