Former Attorney General Eric Holder made his way to the Grand Canyon State this week to campaign on behalf of Democratic gubernatorial candidate and current Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.
"Arizona Secretary of State and Democratic nominee for governor Katie Hobbs, alongside former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, hosted a press conference with local African American leaders," Hobbs election website states. "Holder emphasized Hobbs’ history of protecting the right to vote as Secretary of State while warning of the threat Kari Lake poses for the future of American democracy."

But while Holder made his way to Arizona to talk about elections, the National Border Patrol Union is reminding him of his true and bloody legacy in the state.
We see Eric "Fast and Furious" Holder made an appearance in Arizona to try to prop up Katie "Watergate" Hobbs.— Border Patrol Union - NBPC (@BPUnion) November 4, 2022
The only thing Holder ever accomplished in AZ was getting a BP agent killed with the guns he was giving to cartels. Then he refused to testify about it.
Great guy. pic.twitter.com/29tR6lT1lk
Holder was voted in civil and criminal contempt of Congress by Republicans and Democrats in 2012 for his refusal to cooperate with a congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious, a deadly scandal.
Meanwhile, Hobbs has been asked by Democrats and Republicans to recuse herself as Arizona Secretary of State given her glaring conflict of interest currently overseeing an election where she is a candidate.
It's not just Kari Lake and Republicans in Arizona calling for Secretary of State Katie Hobbs to recuse herself from official election duties — now an Arizona Democrat who previously held the post says Hobbs should let someone else oversee the midterms. https://t.co/7dRU9yBRzo— Spencer Brown (@itsSpencerBrown) November 3, 2022
