Our momentum is growing’: Katie Hobbs far outraises her Democratic competitors for governor in 2021

Secretary of State Katie Hobbs announced Monday she had raised over $2.9 million entirely from donors for her campaign to become Arizona’s next governor.

The Democrat did not put any of her own money into her treasury, according to the campaign. The donations came from nearly 20,000 people and most — more than 90% — were for $100 or less.

“I am proud that our campaign is 100% supporter-funded, and thankful that Arizonans believe in our mission to make our state stronger and more inclusive, and bring people together,” Hobbs said in a statement. “Our momentum is growing, and we are laser focused on making Arizona the best place to live, work, and raise a family when we cross the finish line in November.” 

Hobbs debuted as a national political figure last year as she defended the handling of the 2020 election in Arizona, and her campaign coffers reflect that profile. By June 2021, she had raised over $1 million.

Candidates for statewide office must release details of their fundraising and expenses by Jan. 15, but already several candidates for governor have released overall numbers that show Arizona races are banking record-breaking sums.

The only Republican candidate for governor who has released fundraising, the developer Karrin Taylor Robson, reported last week $3.7 million in her bank, of which half is her own money.
