As the results of Arizona’s midterm elections are still being tabulated, Republican Kari Lake tweeted on Friday evening that Republicans still have hope for a victory in their governor contest against Democrat Katie Hobbs.
Hobbs now leads the race by a narrow margin. According to The New York Times, the Democrat has 50.7% of the vote, while Lake just has 49.3%. Approximately 83 percent of votes have been cast.
However, Lake is optimistic since a KNXV-TV statistics and political analyst tweeted that “the Republican cavalry is coming.”
“Buckle up, boys and girls. It’s about to get fun!” Lake tweeted.
From the Data Guru himself:
“The GOP cavalry is coming”

According to the first tweet from the “Data Guru,” it is unknown when the votes will be tallied, but it appears that they will favor Lake.
“The next batch of 114k late early drop-offs that were transmitted to the elections department will break in favor of [Kari Lake],” the analyst tweeted.
This is also big. The next batch of 114k late early drop-offs that were transmitted to the elections department will break in favor of @KariLake.
Important note: We do not know when these ballots will be tabulated, but the GOP cavalry is coming. https://t.co/CNM5kTJcaZ

Lake has been quite forthright about her confidence in the contest.
She assured Fox News on Thursday that she will defeat Hobbs.
“I am 100 percent going to win. I have absolute 100 percent confidence that I will be the next governor of Arizona,” Lake said.
In a radio appearance on Thursday, she predicted that both she and Republican Blake Masters, who was competing for Arizona’s Senate seat, would win.
“We’re going to win, probably comfortably, and he’s going to win, and it’s going to be tighter. But we believe Blake Masters has a very, very, very good shot at winning. And they’re afraid,” Lake said.
