On Monday night, Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs beat Republican Kari Lake in Arizona’s campaign for governor. However, Lake recently stated that she still hasn’t given up on the notion of governing the state and reforming the media.
People who followed the big political movement surrounding Lake were shocked to learn of Hobb’s victory after days of rumors and news reports alleging a rigged election system:
“Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs has defeated Republican Kari Lake in Arizona’s race for governor, NBC News projected Monday. Hobbs’ victory is key for Democrats in a presidential battleground — though the closeness of the contest left the result up in the air for nearly a week,” according to NBC News.
“A record number of early ballots were dropped off on Election Day in Maricopa County, officials said, which had to be processed in a more time-intensive manner that includes signature verification. Maricopa County, the state’s most populous, said Sunday that it estimated that its count was 94 percent complete after receiving a historic 290,000 of those early ballots on Election Day,” the outlet continued.
On Monday night, Lake visited the media with Independent media and updated her social media with the message, “Arizonans know BS when they see it.”

“Lake spoke with reporters last week and wasted little time setting the record straight when asked about potentially being picked to be Donald Trump’s 2024 running mate,” according to Martin Walsh of Conservative Brief.
“I’m going to do two terms. I’m going to be your worst frickin’ nightmare for 8 years, and we will reform the media as well. We are going to make you guys into journalists again. So, get ready. It’s going to be a fun 8 years.”

A reporter went on to ask Lake: “Just curious, your attorney had mentioned maybe a possible silver lining with the issues that you will be able to move about town and kind of shake hands and talk to some of the people in line. Could you elaborate on your plans later today.”
“We are going to encourage people to stay in line, we are going to vote and stay in line and the people of Arizona would walk over hot coals and they would walk over broken glass to vote today and I know that they can stand in line for a couple hours if they have to. I know they’ll stand in line for eight hours if they have to. And they will vote and my message to the people of Arizona is do not get out of line until you have cast your vote. Do not get out of line until you have cast your vote. Things are looking very good for us. They may be trying to slow a red tsunami but it’s coming, and we are going to take back Arizona and I know that people are out voting. Take food, wear comfortable shoes, take some water and just stay in line, Arizona, and vote. Vote, vote, vote, we have to vote today,” Lake responded. CONTINUE READING…
