PHOENIX – Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs is scheduled to testify Tuesday during a congressional hearing titled “Emerging Threats to Election Administration.”

The Senate Committee on Rules and Administration will livestream the hearing starting at 11:30 a.m. Arizona time.

Hobbs, a Democrat who is running for governor in 2022, is joined on the witness list by one other secretary of state, Kentucky Republican Michael Adams.

Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt, Matt Masterson of the Stanford Internet Observatory and Wade Henderson of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights are also scheduled to appear.

Neither of Arizona’s senators sit on the Rules Committee, which deals with, among other things, proposed federal election legislation.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minnesota) chairs the panel, and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Missouri) is the ranking member.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) are among the committee’s 18 members.

We want to hear from you.
