Kari Lake Snapped As Nets Declared A Winner: ‘Arizonans Know BS When They See It’

Get ready for the left to bash Republican Kari Lake after she posted a tweet that seemed to question the validity of the midterm elections. The results have still not been announced but the media has declared her opponent, Democrat Katie Hobbs, the winner.

“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.

Hobbs is the first Democrat to serve in the governor’s office since 2006. “Democracy is worth the wait. Thank you, Arizona,” Hobbs tweeted Monday night. “I am so honored and so proud to be your next Governor.”

As Arizona’s secretary of state, Hobbs managed the elections in the state this cycle. After a Tuesday fiasco in Maricopa County in which some tabulation machines malfunctioned at multiple voting centers, Lake suggested that Hobbs was compromised and should have recused herself from overseeing the election. While on the campaign trail, Hobbs was remembered for her abortion extremism, failing to name a single restriction on the procedure that she would support if elected governor.

Earlier this week she warned voters that she and her staff have called for Hobbs to step away from her role as one of the people overseeing the election process.

“We called for her to recuse herself July of last year of 2021, right after we got into the race, recognizing that there’s a major ethical problem there. Obviously, just the optics of it looks bad. And she didn’t do that,” Kari Lake said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.”

“Even though many people been calling for her to recuse herself, it creates problems to say the least,” Lake continued.

Hobbs currently has just 34,000 more votes than lake but the state has been stuck at 88% counted for days. Lake said a firm timeline for the final count is “wishy-washy” and was told the state might have answers anywhere from Monday to later this week.


“She will be the one that would certify the election. She has a lot to do with registration, voter registration, all kinds of things … voter rolls and advising counties on how many ballots they’ll need,” Lake explained.

So, I fully expect the nets are about to make Lake out to be an ‘election denier extremist’ but I want to point out that Lake has expressed concern over the ‘new’ system and failing machines around her state.
