Defeated Trump protector sues Arizona election officials

Defeated Trump protector sues Arizona election officials

Republican gubernatorial candidate Carrie Lake on Friday sued election officials in her state to challenge the results of the gubernatorial election. She demands that she be declared the winner rather than her opponent, Katie Hobbs.

In her suit, Lake demands that she be declared the winner of the Arizona gubernatorial race or that the results be annulled and that a new state election be held in Maricopa County.

Democrat Katie Hobbs won the Arizona gubernatorial race last month. Hobbs won by barely a percentage point over Trump’s protected Cary Lake. Lake began her gubernatorial campaign by repeating the lie that widespread fraud had been committed in the 2020 presidential election. Even after her loss, Lake refused to acknowledge her loss, claiming on Twitter that mistakes were made during the electoral process.

During her campaign, the Republican pledged to ban mail-in voting in the state, which conspiracy theorists claim is vulnerable to fraud. A former news anchor, Lake was one of several Trump-backed Republican candidates to win elections in key US midterm elections. battlefield countries Lost.
