The Arizona chapter of Americans Against Mail In Voting has launched a campaign to recall Democrat Gov. Katie Hobbs, citing 2022 election discrepancies resulting in a questionable outcome. 

"The AAMV umbrella was born on November 8, 2022 after witnessing hundreds of election discrepancies nationwide," Executive Director Zachery Tyler told Just the News. "These irregularities and seemingly intentional interferences have come at the cost of the American people's faith and trust in our election process."

Arizona GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake lost last year's election to then-Secretary of State Katie Hobbs but has since alleged that rampant voting irregularities in Maricopa County prevented many would-be Lake voters from casting their ballots.

Lake's lawsuit is expected to be heard Wednesday by the Arizona Court of Appeals.

Hobbs has requested that the case be thrown out, claiming that her former opponent was unable to prove that millions of Arizonans were disenfranchised during the Nov. 8 election.

"AAMV believes that righting the wrongs of the 2022 midterms in Arizona will pave the way toward election integrity across the country," AAMV said. "Many disillusioned cities were told to look at Arizona as a pillar of mass Mail-In Ballots' success, while they look toward adopting a policy similar in their own states. This recall effort is a country changing event."

Tyler told Just the News that the organization is also supporting the recall of other Arizona elected officials. 

"AAMV leads recall efforts on multiple individuals in Arizona such as Hobbs, [Adrian] Fontes, and [Kris] Mayes," Tyler said, referring to the governor, secretary of state and attorney general, respectively. "We are establishing presence in many other states. We are pushing back against voting machines, voter rolls and much more."

"In just under three short months, this organization has grown to over 50,000 people nationwide," he continued. "We have a tremendous network of support and volunteers as well as a great team behind the name."

Hobbs has yet to responded for comment.
