Former lawmaker Art Hamilton endorses Lopez for governor in latest snub of Hobbs

By Ray Stern |Arizona Republic

Katie Hobbs’ run for governor seemed to take another hit as former Democratic lawmaker Art Hamilton said he’ll endorse Marco Lopez for the state’s top job.

Hamilton emerged as a leading critic of Secretary of State Hobbs last week after her insistence that Republicans ultimately had been responsible for the 2015 firing of Talonya Adams, a Black woman, as a Senate senior policy adviser.

He signed a letter along with five other prominent Arizona Black leaders asking voters to “reconsider” support for Hobbs.

“I’m proud to endorse Marco for governor… because Marco is running the kind of inclusive campaign that we need in order to win in November and make real, sustainable change for working families here in Arizona,” Hamilton said in a statement released Monday by Lopez’s campaign.

Hobbs was considered an early front-runner in the 2022 governor’s race before getting blowback from a $2.75 million federal jury award to Adams earlier this month for her firing.
