Born and raised right here in the Grand Canyon State, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs has dedicated her life to solving difficult challenges for Arizonans. In her time as a social worker and running a domestic violence shelter, Katie saw firsthand the price Arizonans pay when their elected leaders fail to address the problems people are facing day in and day out. Frustrated with the lack of leadership, Katie decided to run for office herself, and she used her experience as a social worker to take on Arizona's toughest challenges. In the legislature, Katie worked with two Republican governors to provide healthcare for hundreds of thousands of Arizonans and to hold criminals accountable by clearing the rape kit backlog. As Secretary of State during the 2020 election, Katie's office conducted the safest and most secure election in our state's history amid unprecedented challenges to our democracy. Katie has never backed down from a tough fight, and she is a battle-tested leader with the strength and experience to get the job done. Now Katie's running for governor to deliver real results for everyday Arizonans and finally bring the leadership required to solve the most urgent issues Arizona faces today.
