Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has dropped a video on social media responding to reports that she lost to her Democratic opponent, Katie Hobbs.
“I wanted to reach out to you to let you know that I’m still in this fight with you,” she says to begin the video. “For two years I’ve been sounding the alarm about our broken election system here in Arizona, and this past week has confirmed everything we’ve been saying.
There have been no official reports of problems that occurred during the Arizona election indicating foul play or that results were changed, it should be noted.
“When we called for Katie Hobbs to recuse herself over a year ago, they ridiculed us. It turns out we were right; the fox was guarding the henhouse and because of that, voters have been disenfranchised,” Lake claimed.
“When we raised concerns and I filed a lawsuit months ago to get rid of the electronic voting machines, they said we were crazy. Well, it turns out we were right,” she added.
Next, the video shows several clips of what appear to be people standing in long lines at polling stations.
“On Election Day, nearly half of all polling locations had problems with tabulating machines and printers. Malfunctioning tabulation machines forced voters to wait in line for hours to exercise their sacred right to vote,” Lake said.
“One man told me he went to a location, there was a three-hour line because the tabulators weren’t working. He drove fifteen miles to another location, and the printers weren’t working,” she said.
“He drove another fifteen miles and was finally able to cast his vote, but he’s not sure it counted. Our election officials failed us miserably. What happened to Arizonans on Election Day is unforgivable,” she added.
Lake then went on to unveil her next moves.
“Now I’m busy here collecting evidence and data, rest assured I have assembled the best and brightest legal team and we are exploring every avenue to correct the many wrongs that have been done this past week,” she told supporters.
“I’m doing everything in my power to right these wrongs. My resolve to fight for you is higher than ever.”’
