Katie Hobbs is Leading Arizona to a Brighter Future
Senate Democratic Leader Katie Hobbs has dedicated her life to improving our community. She has worked tirelessly to fight back against the extremists trying to take over state. As a native of Phoenix and lifelong resident of Arizona, she knows what's at stake. That's why she will continue fighting for every resident in District 24 and across Arizona.
Katie understands the importance of strong leadership for our state in these difficult times. She leads by example. When she talks about the importance of strong schools, her votes reflect that. When she talks about standing up against extremist Tea Party organizations such as the Goldwater Institute, she backs it up with action.

The Arizona Capitol Times reported that an unprecedented $8.4 million was spent by anonymous corporations to influence the 2014 election in Arizona. We must put a stop to those trying to buy our elections.
The measures being introduced will:
Session just began, and I officially take office as the Senate Minority Leader. I want to thank all of you for your enormous support in my re-election last year. I’m also thankful to my colleagues in the Senate Democratic Caucus for electing me as leader. As we shift into legislative session, the excitement of the election season quickly fades to determination as I see the many obstacles we face in moving our state forward.
