Kari Lake, the Arizona gubernatorial candidate and rising star of the Republican Party, is a warrior, regardless of where you stand on the political spectrum or what you think of her personally.
She fought to escape the grasp of the legacy media, she fought against the establishment Republicans who have lost sight of what the American people want, she fought to transform herself from a political longshot into a legitimate contender, and she is currently fighting for the integrity of a gubernatorial election that has been plagued by issues and questions.
In an interview with the U.K.’s Daily Mail published on Saturday — four days after Democrat Katie Hobbs declared victory in the governor’s contest — Lake reiterated her intention to fight back.
“The way they run elections in Maricopa County is worse than in banana republics around this world,” she told the outlet.
Then, taking a cue from Joe Namath, Lake doubled down on her prediction that she will be the future governor of Arizona and called her shot.
“And I’ll tell you what, I believe at the end of the day that this will be turned around, and I don’t know what the solution will be, but I still believe I will become governor, and we are going to restore honesty to our elections,” she said.
The unofficial election results provided on the website of Arizona’s secretary of state, Hobbs, indicate that the Democrat received 50.3% of the vote against her opponent’s 49.7%. The Associated Press and others have predicted Hobbs’s victory.
Soon after Arizona Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright caused a stir with a letter demanding answers and accountability for all of the mistakes in Maricopa County, Lake made a bold prediction of triumph.
Wright stated in a letter to the civil division chief of the county attorney’s office on Saturday that the elections integrity unit of the state prosecutor’s office had “received hundreds of complaints since Election Day pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County.”
Whether the problems at the impacted voting places were the product of nefarious intent or simple ineptitude, they must be resolved.
Lake’s remarks were made around two weeks after Election Day. It is completely unacceptable for a contemporary, sophisticated society to require fourteen days to count ballots.
“These complaints go beyond pure speculation, but include first-hand witness accounts that raise concerns regarding Maricopa’s lawful compliance with Arizona election law,” Wright wrote.

She proceeded to provide some specific issues that justifiably prompted her letter.
“According to Maricopa County, at least 60 voting locations had issues related to some ballot-on-demand (BOD) printers having printer configuration settings that were non-uniform, which appeared to have resulted in ballots that were unable to be read by on-site ballot tabulators,” Wright said.
