Senate Majority Leadership Applauds AG Brnovich for Once Again Calling Out Secretary of State Hobbs for Failing to Comply with Elections Law
In response to numerous complaints on Secretary of State Katie Hobbs for warning that the electronic system E-Qual will be shut down in March, the Senate Majority Leadership commends Attorney General Mark Brnovich for taking action and issuing the letter regarding "Availability of E-Qual for 2022 Legislative & Congressional Candidates," concerning her absurd violations of state statute.
"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.
