Twitter Takeaway: Blake Masters Lied His Way Through the #AZSen Debate  

PHOENIX — Throughout Thursday night’s U.S. Senate debate, Blake Masters fell into his old habit of outright lying to Arizona voters and hiding his true positions on the issues that matter most. 

Over the course of the hour-long debate, Masters desperately tried to hide his plan to implement a national abortion ban, dodged questions about his calls to “cut the knot” and privatize Social Security, and tried to distance himself from his previous statements saying “I think Trump won in 2020.”

Despite all the smoke and mirrors, everyone — Arizonans and members of the media alike — recognized the truth: Blake Masters can run, but he can’t hide from his extreme beliefs.
