Way out west in Arizona, there appears to be some trouble brewing, and 2022 gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has found herself right in the middle of it.
Lake has long held concerns about the integrity of our US elections, particularly after the debacle in 2022 in which then-President Donald Trump began raising his own doubts about the veracity of the election.
And now that Lake has lost her recent contest, she’s going on the warpath.
Arizona Republican Kari Lake is lawyering up and could look to legally contest the result of the governor race after it was officially called for Democratic Governor-elect Katie Hobbs on Monday.
Lake, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, has refused to concede as she claims her voters were unfairly disenfranchised or otherwise faced delays and disadvantages on Election Day.
Lake appeared confident in her maneuvering.
“Rest assured I have assembled the best and brightest legal team, and we are exploring every avenue to correct the many wrongs that have been done this past week,” Lake said in a new video on Thursday. “I’m doing everything in my power to right these wrongs.”
Lake would go on to blast the voting troubles that occurred within the all-important Maricopa County, characterizing the issues as “unforgivable”.
