PHOENIX — Arizona gubernatorial candidates Kari Lake and Katie Hobbs will be on the same stage at the same event next month — but not at the same time.

Lake and Hobbs will participate in what’s being billed as a “one-on-one town hall” on Sept. 7 at the Republic National Distributing Company of Arizona in Phoenix.

Each candidate is scheduled to get about 20 minutes of time on stage with a moderator, Annie Vogt with the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, who is putting on the event, told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Friday.

The order of candidates on stage and other logistics will be ironed out as the event gets closer, Vogt said.

It’s still unknown whether Lake and Hobbs will debate on the same stage before the Nov. 8 general election.

Lake, the Republican nominee, took to Twitter on Friday challenging Hobbs to debate her.

Hobbs didn’t debate fellow Democrat Marco Lopez ahead of the primary election earlier this month.

“Ducking out of debates may have worked in her primary, but it won’t work against me,” Lake said.

More details on the event are available online.
