Phoenix police said Wednesday they were investigating a break-in at the campaign headquarters of Katie Hobbs, the Democratic nominee for governor of Arizona.

A police spokesman said officers responded to a call about a break-in on Tuesday afternoon and determined items were taken from the office Monday evening. Details about the seized property were not immediately available.

No suspects have been identified, police said, who said detectives were checking security cameras to “identify and locate the subject involved”.

Democrats were quick to point the finger at Hobbs’ GOP opponent, Trump-backed Kari Lake, claiming she was directly responsible for the break-in.

“Make no mistake — this is a direct result of Kari Lake and fringe Republicans spreading lies and hatred and inciting violence — and it’s despicable,” the Arizona Democratic Party said. said in a statement on Twitter.

Reached for comment Wednesday night, Lake’s campaign fired back at Democrats who said they were responsible for the break-in.

“We know absolutely nothing about it, so it’s a lot of accusations that they’re just laying around,” said Ross Trumble, a campaign spokesperson.

The break-in comes amid reports of voter intimidation in Arizona, where Hobbs, as Secretary of State, is the top election official. On Monday, her office said it had referred more cases to the attorney general’s office and the US Department of Justice for further investigation.

In a statement on Wednesday, Hobbs’ campaign manager linked reports of alleged voter intimidation to Lake and other election deniers.

“Let’s be clear: For nearly two years now, Kari Lake and her allies have been spreading dangerous misinformation and sowing threats against anyone they see fit. The threats against Arizonans seeking to exercise their constitutional rights and their attacks on elected officials are the direct result of a concerted campaign of lies and intimidation,” Nicole DeMont said in a statement.

She added that “Hobbs and her staff have endured hundreds of death threats and threats of violence over the course of this campaign.”
