Republican Attorney General Mark Brnovich said Wednesday that Trump doesn't directly control the Postal Service and that Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs didn't present any evidence of actual election interference in Arizona. He also accuses Hobbs of spreading misinformation. Hobbs last week asked Brnovich to investigate whether Trump's criticism of the Postal Service and changes made by the new postmaster general violated Arizona law. Hobbs wrote on Twitter that she's disappointed Brnovich won't investigate.
