Former Obama Attorney General Issues Surprising Endorsement

Barack Obama's former attorney general is making a surprising endorsement.

"Arizona Democratic gubernatorial nominee Katie Hobbs is holding a meet and greet with former Obama Administration Attorney General Eric Holder," reported Breitbart.

An 'African Americans for Katie Hobbs' meet and greet is happening in downtown Phoenix this week.

Obama AG Announces SHOCK Endorsement

"Holder has faced no accountability for the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Fast and Furious scandal, which saw thousands of guns walk to Mexico under his watch," reported Breitbart. "In December 2010, some of the guns were used by members of a Mexican rip crew to murder border patrol agent Brian Terry."

"Holder’s visit comes a day after former President Barack Obama stumped for Hobbs and Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ), who is locked in a dead-heat with republican challenger Blake Masters," according to Breitbart.

"A Phillips Academy poll released Tuesday shows that Hobbs, Arizona’s secretary of state, trails her Republican opponent, Kari Lake, by double digits," reports Breitbart. "Lake received 53 percent of likely voter support, while Hobbs garnered 42 percent."

11 of the last 13 polls posted on FiveThirtyEight’s website report Lake in the lead. The other two have the candidates tied.

"Hobbs has drawn scrutiny after one of her former employees in the Arizona State Senate, a black woman named Talonya Adams, successfully sued the legislative body for racial and sexual discrimination that she blames Hobbs for," reported Breitbart. "Adams was awarded $2.75 million to Adams, but state law capped it at $300,000. Between lawyer fees and the payout, which was finally sent in September, the case has cost Arizona taxpayers $758,806."
