Kari Lake removed from town hall

Republican candidate for governor Kari Lake was removed from a town hall audience before her democratic opponent took stage.

Saturday night’s town hall was a pre-taped event, with the candidates supposed to go on stage separately.

Organizers say Lake was supposed to be in a holding room but somehow ended up in the front row.

Many believe this was a stunt to rattle her opponent, Katie Hobbs, because the two could not agree to a one on one debate.

Kari Lake worked as an anchor here at News Channel 13 in the late 1990’s.

Lake won the republican primary for governor in early August.
