Arizona Votes: Hear what governor candidates have to say about top issues

Sep 15, 2022, 4:45 AM | Updated: 3:06 pm

PHOENIX — KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Luke Forstner was on hand last week when Arizona’s gubernatorial candidates, Republican Kari Lake and Democrat Katie Hobbs, took part in a forum hosted by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Phoenix.

Forstner breaks down the Sept. 7 event and the candidates share their views on a variety of issues — including the economy, taxes, education and water supply — in the podcast on top of this story.

The forum was one of just two times Hobbs and Lake are expected to appear at the same event — but not at the same time — in the leadup to the Nov. 8 general election.

Hobbs has refused to participate in a traditional head-to-head debate against Lake.

The candidates are booked to participate in a town hall on Oct. 3 at the Herberger Theater Center in Phoenix as part of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce national convention.

We want to hear from you.
