Earlier in July, Hobbs asked Brnovich to investigate the pressure campaign.
“The correspondence marks the first public sign that Brnovich, a Republican running for the U.S. Senate, intends to examine public records in the aftermath of The Republic’s reporting, which first detailed the pressure campaign. The Republic found Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and Kelli Ward, the chairwoman of the Arizona Republican Party, repeatedly reached out to Maricopa County officials to try to influence the election outcome,” the newspaper reported.
The newspaper obtained a copy of the email sent by the AG’s office.
“Additionally, please provide any and all records your office possesses related to potential violations of Arizona’s election laws,” Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright wrote in the email to Hobbs.
