You can’t unsend the email. 

A spokeswoman for the Arizona Senate tried to walk back a statement from President Karen Fann supporting Republican nominee for governor Kari Lake and trashing her Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs on Friday after the statement was sent on Senate letterhead and via the Senate’s official spokeswoman. 

Arizona law says the state shall “not spend or use public resources to influence an election.” 

The statement was “accidentally” sent from the official Senate email, spokeswoman Kim Quintero said in a follow-up email almost four hours later asking to retract the prior message. 

The political point of Fann’s message was clear, calling Hobbs unfit to lead the state and a “dangerous choice for Arizona governor” while throwing in some jabs at the “reckless and extremist policies of Democrats.”
