Trump-Endorsed Republican Kari Lake Officially Wins AZ Governor Primary

Kari Lake, a former television news anchor and Trump-endorsed candidate for governor in Arizona, officially won her party’s primary with 47%, besting moderate Karrin Taylor Robson, who garnered 44%. Robson had the support of ex-Vice President Mike Pence and lame duck Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey — both major Trump critics. Results are currently 88% in, but enough to call the race.

The Daily Wire reports:

Lake will face Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, the Democratic nominee, in the general election.

“Though the results took longer than they should have, Arizonans who have been forgotten by the establishment just delivered a political earthquake. My opponent Katie Hobbs had just one job in government, and that was to ensure an efficiently processed election. She failed spectacularly,” Lake said in a statement. “Arizona just sent a clear message: our state is done with failed politicians like Katie Hobbs.”

Lake is a former TV news anchor who left her local television role in 2020 over the “obvious bias” and “liberal ideology” of the media. Once a vocal critic of [45th] President Donald Trump, Lake came around to supporting him in the 2020 election against President Joe Biden. Lake campaigned on investigating and rectifying the “corrupt and stolen” 2020 election, a message that evidently caught Trump’s interest early as he endorsed her last year.

Lake won in a race that became a proxy battle of influence between Trump and his former vice president, Mike Pence. Both Trump and Pence are reportedly considering 2024 presidential bids. Pence and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey endorsed Robson, who trailed essentially the entire race. An average of polls compiled by RealClearPolitics placed Robson over nine points behind Lake before voting ended Tuesday evening.

Only way the DimoKrats can retain power is for the FBI/DOJ/CIA folks to create a false flag event that allows China Joey to declare Martial Law and suspend elections.
If that happens the results will not be pretty since a REAL uprising will occur to overthrow the Idiotcrats now living in Wash DC!
