On Saturday night, the FBI and Phoenix police, along with hazmat and bomb squad units, were called to Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake’s campaign headquarters after “suspicious items” were reportedly found in the mail, according to NBC News.
A source familiar with the incident told NBC News that the office received two envelopes containing a white powdery substance.
That source said a Lake campaign staffer opened one of the envelopes and was exposed to the material inside but was not sick from the exposure.
The Phoenix Police Department confirmed they responded to an office building near 40th Street and Camelback Road and reportedly seized the items and secured the area. Authorities reported that there had been no injuries in connection with the incident at this time.
