Democratic gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs appeared on Arizona PBS on Oct. 18 for a half-hour interview.

Hobbs has refused to debate her Republican opponent, Kari Lake, instead asking for separate 30-minute interviews.

The Citizens Clean Elections Commission rejected that idea, and instead said Lake would have a half-hour on PBS instead of the debate the panel wanted.

But when Hobbs announced she was also going to sit for an interview on PBS, Clean Elections pulled its conversation with Lake from the channel. That interview will now happen on AZTV.

To sort all of this out, The Show spoke with Stacey Barchenger of the Arizona Republic.
