Arizona Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs is under fire for a series of tweets from 2017 calling supporters of President Trump “his neo-nazi base.”
Hobbs posted the anti-Trump tweets prior to her current position.

The Washington Examiner reports:
In tweets sent from her personal campaign account, Hobbs accused Trump of being “on the side of the freaking Nazis” and said that much of what happened at his rallies was “deplorable” and cheered for “stopping the Trump agenda.”
Critics took to social media to call out Hobbs.

This is Arizona's secretary of state. The one in charge of certifying the election.
You read that right. https://t.co/RdLeEsAlRd

This will surely lead to a full audit of every vote in your state.
You have no business holding the position you do.
I believe you would cheat to prevent Donald Trump from serving a 2nd term as President.

President Trump and Arizona citizens are calling for a recount.
From 200,000 votes to less than 10,000 votes. If we can audit the total votes cast, we will easily win Arizona also! https://t.co/3eZHjdZL98

As an AZ resident I demand a full audit of our votes! These comments make Katie unqualified

I also demand a full audit as an AZ VOTER

With her anti-Trump agenda, it’s not surprising to see Hobbs is now a media star.
USA Today’s story, “Katie Hobbs did not come to play. How Arizona’s secretary of state became an election news star,” highlights her recent rounds of media interviews.
Hobbs is responsible for certifying Arizona’s election results, however, her anti-Trump tweets are outrageous and makes it abundantly clear that she should have nothing to do with the election process.
