Kari Lake falls BEHIND Democrat Katie Hobbs in Arizona Governor race

Kari Lake rips into ‘cheats and crooks’ and says she will ‘keep fighting’ to make the election ‘free and fair’ as she falls BEHIND Democratic rival Katie Hobbs in Arizona governor’s race, filling in on broken voting machines

  • Republican Arizona governor candidate Kari Lake said she will ‘fight for days’ against those trying to steal elections
  • “We had a big day today and don’t let those impostors and crooks think anything else — don’t let them question you,” Lake said
  • Said insisted that she insist for days to see that the results are valid
  • Came when she fell after Democratic challenger Katie Hobbs in the wee hours of Wednesday morning
  • The 5 percent rail is a big improvement from earlier in the night when the GOP candidate left double digits

Kari Lake vowed she will “fight for days” to make sure Arizona’s 2022 midterms are carried out “reasonably” before a final count is reported as she falls 5 percent behind her Democratic challenger amid chaos with voting machine failures.

Lake gave a speech from Scottsdale, Arizona, on Tuesday night, when she chased her opponent Katie Hobbs in double digits, claiming that the “impostors” are trying to tell Republicans they were not having the “red tsunami” they predicted.

The former television journalist made significant progress from the time of her speech to a few hours later, gaining more than half the ground it took to take a win.

“We had a big day today and don’t let those impostors and crooks think otherwise—don’t let them question you,” Lake told a cheering crowd at the Scottsdale Resort on McCormick Ranch.

“We have a movement and we know it,” she added.

Kari Lake, the Republican Arizona gubernatorial nominee, said she will “fight for days” against “cheats and con artists” trying to steal the election as she falls behind her Democratic challenger in the wee hours of Wednesday morning.

Lake claimed in the months leading up to Election Day that she would only accept the results of a “free and fair election,” but has consistently refused to answer directly the question of whether she would concede if Hobbs emerged as the winner.

As of 4 a.m. on election night, 61 percent of the vote was reported in Arizona, and Lake was just 2.6 behind Hobbs — a much better prognosis than hours earlier when she was 11 points behind.

“I prayed to God a lot. I’ve been praying to God all day, every day,” Lake said during her address Tuesday night, when it became clear that the results would not be announced on Election Day. ‘And I said to him, ‘You let this victory come as you wish.’

“If it’s decisive on Election Day, bring it to us like that,” she added. “If we have to fight through the BS and the garbage, then we will fight through the BS and the garbage.”

Arizonans wait in line on Tuesday to vote in Phoenix, Arizona amid chaos with voting machine malfunctions causing massive delays and doubts about impending results

‘How do you get fair and free elections?’ the Trump-backed candidate continued. “You have to fight and win to make them fair and free.”

“And we needed another stark reminder that we have incompetent people running the show in Arizona,” she said, referring to voting system malfunctions in Arizona’s largest county, Maricopa, which includes Phoenix.

Republican County Recorder Stephen Richer announced that about one-fifth of his electronic voting tab machines in Maricopa County were out of order just hours after Election Day on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

Arizona election officials claimed the tabulating problem at 20 percent of Maricopa County polling stations had been resolved in 52 of the 60 affected centers.

“Every legal vote will be tabulated. I promise,” Richer assured

Lake and GOP Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters has filed a lawsuit demanding polling stations extend their hours of operation until 10 p.m., but a judge rejected the emergency request.

Giving her speech around midnight on Election Day, Lake insisted it is still early to tell who will win the election and referred to past races where the rolling results showed GOP gains.

“I just want you to know – it’s early. It’s very early,” Lake said. “And if we have to get through this fight, we will.”

“If it takes hours or days, we’ll do it,” she insisted.
