PHOENIX — Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction candidates Kathy Hoffman and Tom Horne face off Wednesday night in a debate put on by PBS.
Hoffman, a Democrat, is the current schools chief and has held the office since 2019.
Here’s her last appearance on KTAR News:
Horne, the Republican nominee, is also no stranger to the position.
He served as superintendent of public instruction from 2003-2011.
Listen to Horne’s last KTAR News appearance:
