Judge denies Sec Hobbs' request for permission to break the law


Phoenix, Arizona - The Supreme Court of Arizona denied the request of Secretary of State Katie Hobbs to shut down the electronic system E-Qual in March.


"The Secretary of State's office is tasked with facilitating candidate election qualification- not influencing it. Secretary of State Hobbs' blatant disregard of state law infringes on the ability for candidates from all parties to qualify for the ballot. We would expect greater leadership from someone charged with carrying out the core functions of Arizona's election laws, but instead, she continues to make serious errors that violate statute. No potential candidates should face any illegal roadblocks when participating in our democratic process," stated Senate Majority Leadership.


We applaud the decision by the Supreme Court. This is a major victory for the rule of law.
