Arizona’s Democrat gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs claims that someone broke into her campaign office earlier this week.
Hobbs’ campaign blamed her opponent, who is walloping her in the polls, Kari Lake.
According to reports, the Phoenix Police Department responded to a report of a burglary at the downtown office around 2 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.
A spokesperson for the department said that “items were taken from the property sometime during the night,” according to a report from The Hill.

“This is still an active investigation with detectives checking all security cameras in attempts to identify and locate the subject involved,” the spokesperson said.
Hobbs’ campaign manager, Nicole DeMont, also posted about the alleged break-in on Twitter.

“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 statement said. “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.”
“It won’t work,” the statement continued. “Katie is running for governor to ensure the safety and security of every Arizona family. She will win this race.”
There are currently no suspects in the case.
Lake leads Hobbs by 11 percentage points, according to the latest polls — 54 percent to 43 percent.
