Suspicious Substance Causes FBI Investigation on Kari Lake

Republican Candidate for governor in Arizona, Kari Lake, received an envelope at her campaign office containing a “suspicious white substance.” The letter, one of two strange envelopes, was opened by a staff member who is currently under medical supervision.


Colton Duncan, a spokesperson from Lake’s campaign, said they have sent the envelopes to Quantico for investigation. The Phoenix PD, hazmat team, bomb squad and FBI have also responded to the situation.


The incident has caused the campaign office to be shut down just two days out from election day.


"In the meantime, know that our resolve has never been higher and we cannot be intimidated. We continue to push full speed ahead to win this election on Tuesday,” Duncan said.


Katie Hobbs, Democratic opponent of Lake, also released a statement about the incident.


"The reported incident at Kari Lake’s campaign office is incredibly concerning and I am thankful that she and her staff were not harmed. Political violence, threats, or intimidation have no place in our democracy. I strongly condemn this threatening behavior directed at Lake and her staff," Hobbs' campaign said.


This is not the first campaign trial the Arizona candidates have faced. Less than a week ago, Daniel Mota Dos Reisbroke into Hobbs’ campaign office.


At the moment the investigation is open and ongoing. Check back here for updates.
