Last week authorities alongside a Hazmat team shut down Kari Lake’s headquarters after an unknown white powdery substance was reportedly found inside a hate mail letter to Lake.
Now authorities have concluded that no harmful substance was found inside of the letters.
The suspects of the threatening hate mail have yet to be identified but staffers of Lake believe the incident was a move by radical leftists to instill fear into Lake’s campaign just a few days before the election.

Fox News shared these details:
Authorities did not discover any substance in the “suspicious” items mailed to Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake’s campaign headquarters.
This comes after Lake’s campaign alleged last week that a staffer was exposed to a “suspicious” white powdery substance sent in an envelope to her office.
Phoenix Police said Friday that an investigation and laboratory test confirmed there was no substance in the envelope.
“The state lab tested the items turned over to them regarding incident #2022-1665892 and has determined there was no substance inside,” police said.
Officers had responded on November 6 to a “found property call at an office building” near 40th Street and Camelback, police previously told FOX News Digital.
“It was one of two envelopes that were confiscated by law enforcement and sent to professionals at Quantico for examination, and we are awaiting details. The staff member is currently under medical supervision.” (more)
