(JustPatriots.com)- Despite predictions that she would lose the Arizona governor’s race against Democrat Katie Hobbs on Monday, Republican Kari Lake has held her ground.
Lake wrote on Twitter that “Arizonans know BS when they see it.”
She often questioned the validity of the 2020 election that gave Joe Biden the presidency during her campaign, and she recently told ABC News that she would only surrender the governor’s race if “it’s fair, honest, and transparent.”
In that interview, Lake stated that we had Election Day when she first started voting in the ’80s. Election Day is spelled out in the constitution. We have observed as election day has evolved into election week, election weeks, and now election month. And the more fraud there is with things, the longer they drag it out.
Nearly a week after election day, ABC News called the Arizona race for Hobbs, saying her victory resulted from “a dramatic rejection of election deniers in midterm contests.”
CNN also called the race for Hobbs while saying she would beat one of the most prominent proponents of former President Donald Trump’s lies about the 2020 election.
Fox News agreed with the majority and said Lake had lost but added that the Arizona regulations might require a recount.
The AP wire service said that they decided that Lake was not accumulating a significant enough percentage to overtake Hobbs and was running out of remaining votes, even though she had been recording steadily more significant margins in vote reports from Maricopa County.
Out of the roughly 2.5 million votes cast, with 95% of them reported, Hobbs had a margin of victory of about 20,000, according to AP figures published in The New York Times on Monday night.
Following reports that she had won, Hobbs released a statement-
“I want to express my gratitude to the voters for giving me such a huge responsibility. I will do everything in my ability to make you proud because it is a once-in-a-lifetime honor. My family, our volunteers, and the campaign staff deserve my gratitude. This evening would not be possible without your dedication, zeal, and sacrifice. I sincerely appreciate your help.”
She said, “Let’s go to work,” saying, “For the Arizonans who did not vote for me, I will fight just as hard for you – because even in this period of separation, I believe there is so much more that binds us.”
