Regardless of your political views or what you may even think of her personally, Arizona governor candidate and rising star of the GOP Kari Lake is a warrior.
She fought against the establishment Republicans who had lost sight of what the American people wanted, she fought to transform herself from a political outsider to a legitimate contender, and she is currently fighting for the integrity of a governorship election that has been beset by problems and doubts.
In an interview with the U.K.’s Daily Mail that was released on Saturday, four days after Democrat Katie Hobbs claimed victory in the governor’s contest, Lake reiterated her commitment to fighting back.
She told the site, “The way they run elections in Maricopa County is worse than in banana republics around this world.”
Then Lake borrowed a move from Joe Namath, called her shot, and reiterated her forecast that she will succeed Jan Brewer as governor of Arizona.
She continued, “And I’ll tell you what, I believe at the end of the day that this will be turned around, and I don’t know what the solution will be, but I still believe I will become governor, and we are going to restore honesty to our elections.”
The Democrat received 50.3 percent of the vote to her Republican opponent’s 49.7 percent, according to the preliminary election results published on the website of Arizona’s secretary of state, who also happens to be Hobbs. The contest for Hobbs has been predicted by the Associated Press and others.
Soon after Arizona Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright created a stir with a forceful letter demanding explanations and accountability for all of the disasters in the aforementioned Maricopa County, Lake made the audacious prediction of success.
Wright claimed that the state prosecutor’s office’s elections integrity unit had “received hundreds of complaints since Election Day pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County” in a letter sent on Saturday to Thomas Liddy, head of the civil division in the county attorney’s office.
The problems must be resolved, regardless of whether they were brought on by malicious activity at the impacted voting places or just plain stupidity.
Nearly two weeks after Election Day, Lake made his remarks. It is completely unacceptable for a contemporary, developed civilisation to take 14 days to count the votes.

“These complaints go beyond pure speculation, but include first-hand witness accounts that raise concerns regarding Maricopa’s lawful compliance with Arizona election law,” Wright wrote.
She proceeded to provide some specific issues that justifiably prompted her letter.
“According to Maricopa County, at least 60 voting locations had issues related to some ballot-on-demand (BOD) printers having printer configuration settings that were non-uniform, which appeared to have resulted in ballots that were unable to be read by on-site ballot tabulators,” Wright said.
