(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Was the Arizona gubernatorial election stolen from GOP candidate Kari Lake? Both Lake and her biggest supporter, former President Donald Trump, seem to believe so based on posts they’ve made to their social media accounts after every major news organization called the race for her Democrat opponent last night.
As the conservative National Review reports in a piece headlined “Kari Lake Implies Fraud to Blame for Gubernatorial Loss: ‘Arizonans Know BS When They See It'”:
“Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake seemed to suggest that fraud cost her the election after the race was called for her Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs Monday night.
“‘Arizonans know BS when they see it,’ Lake tweeted after the outcome was declared by multiple outlets, implying that she was not yet ready to concede. Hobbs secured 50.4 percent — a total of 1,266,922 votes — to Lake’s 49.6 percent — a total of 1,247,428 votes — with 98 percent of the votes counted, according to the Associated Press. The race was called almost a week after Election Day as many ballots were being dropped off and counted for days.” [emphasis added]
And, as mentioned, Trump joined Lake in expressing concern.
“Former president Trump, who endorsed Lake in the Republican primary thanks to her embrace of his stolen election narrative, joined Lake in suggesting that the vote-counting process was compromised.
“‘Wow! They just took the election away from Kari Lake. It’s really bad out there!‘ Trump wrote on Truth Social Monday night.” [emphasis added]
Time will tell, but so far, all news outlets have declared Hobbs the winner.
