(JustPatriots.com)- Arizona Republican gubernatorial hopeful Kari Lake appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight last Wednesday where she suggested that the election would swing in her direction as the state completed the vote count.
Lake told Tucker she was “100 percent certain” she would win in the end, adding that it was just a question of how big the margin of victory would be.
She said the 650,000 outstanding votes that remained to be counted would be “our voters.” So while she might only be down by a few thousand votes, when those outstanding ballots get counted “we’re going to see a lot of liberal minds kind of blowing up.”
Famous last words.
On Monday evening, Democrat Katie Hobbs was declared the winner of the Arizona gubernatorial race, defeating Lake 50.4 percent to 49.6 percent with 97 percent of the vote counted.
In a statement Monday night, Hobbs extended an olive branch to Arizonans who didn’t vote for her, telling them she would work just as hard for them as those who voted for her. She said her victory was about “moving this state forward and facing the challenges of our generation.”
In response to Hobbs being declared the winner, Lake tweeted, “Arizonans know BS when they see it.”
However, some Arizona pundits believe Lake’s razor-thin defeat was likely due to moderate Republicans and Independents abandoning Lake over her attacks on “McCain voters.”
One person who was delighted that Kari Lake was defeated was the odious Liz Cheney.
In late October, after Liz Cheney’s PAC began running an ad urging Arizonans not to vote for Kari Lake, Lake released a statement on Twitter, thanking Liz for helping her raise campaign funds and adding “another 10 points to our lead.”
When Hobbs was declared the winner Monday night, Cheney quote-tweeted Lake’s October tweet, adding “You’re welcome, @KariLake.”
