Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake is urging her Democrat opponent Katie Hobbs to a debate her, even if it means doing it on “The View” with liberal hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg as moderators.
Lake made the suggestion as Hobbs appears to be refusing to debate her Republican counterpart just weeks before Arizona’s midterms.
Speaking in front of a crowd at a campaign event, Lake stated as follows:
“Katie, I will debate you on a stage, I will debate you in a parking, I will debate you in a library, I will debate you in a bar, I will debate you in a car, will debate you on CNN, I will debate you on MSNBC…
“I’ll even debate you on ‘The View’ and let Joy Behar and Whoopi ask the questions, but show some courage.”

The latest challenge made by Lake comes days after a video went viral of Hobbs struggling to answer a question about what specific lesson she has learned from the Latino community, as seen here:
"If she can’t stand up and debate me, then she can’t stand up against the cartels. She can’t stand up against the forces that are working against the people of Arizona." –@KariLake
