Kari Lake has officially secured the Republican nomination to be Arizona’s next governor after a lengthy and contested primary election that was called on Thursday night.

The Trump-endorsed former TV news anchor faced primary opponent Karrin Taylor Robson, who had been backed by establishment Republicans, including former Vice President Mike Pence and outgoing Arizona Governor Doug Ducey.

As early votes began to be counted heading into Tuesday’s election night, Robson appeared to be winning with over a 10 point lead at one point. Many Republican establishment and Democrat pundits, such as The View host Meghan McCain, assumed that Lake was facing certain defeat.

“Wow…Lake is getting crushed so far!!! Incredible!” she wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “Everybody better tune in to primetime if this lunatic loses cause she’s gonna go absolute insane on live TV. Like one for the books, makes Trump look normal insane.”

Lake pushed back against those doubts a few hours later, telling her supporters on stage “we are going to win this.” Her remarks were made with 60% of the votes having been reported. At the time, the race was sitting 40.9% to 48.8% in favor of Robson.

“We have the ideas. We have the policies. And we are going to win this. 100 percent. I don’t want any of you not to believe that. When they count the votes, we are going to win this, and there is no path to victory for our opponent. And when we get into office, we are going to reform our elections for once and for all,” Lake said.

As the news appeared to look grim for Lake heading later into the night, the America First hopeful suddenly put out a message to her supporters on Twitter.

“Huge updates coming. Stay tuned,” wrote Lake. “Massive ballet drop incoming. Hold onto your seats.”

Then, Lake’s lead began to dramatically grow as more election day ballots poured in, even despite election issues coming out of Pinal County.

With 67% votes reported, Lake’s vote percentage had grown to 43.1% compared to Robson’s 47.0%. As the vote surge continued at 69.68% votes reported, Lake’s percentage had grown to 43.6% to Robson’s 46.5%.

By the time 75.62% of the votes had been tallied, Lake had officially taken the lead, bridging what was, at one point, an 11 point gap.

Many grew concerned about the integrity of the election due to the issue of Pinal County “running out” of ballots, as well as Maricopa County’s decision to stop counting votes on election night, conveniently right after Lake’s lead had been made certain.

Maricopa’s 2022 gubernatorial shenanigans appeared to be cause for concern when it came to Arizonans that still hold resentment for what they consider to be a fraudulent and mismanaged 2020 presidential election, with some users online demanding that the county continue counting votes, and pointing blame at Democrat Secretary of State Kattie Hobbs — Lake’s now-current opponent in the race.

“Who’s down to protest this? I’ve never protested anything in my life, but Stephen Richer and @katiehobbs are either incompetent or malicious. Don’t care which. I’m DONE!!@kelliwardaz @tylerbowyer @JackPosobiec @KariLakeWarRoom,” tweeted one user. 

“My Democrat opponent sure isn’t off to a good start. Disenfranchising voters in the Primary Election isn’t the best way to win them over in the General Election. Very bad for her,” Lake tweeted about Hobbs’ management of the primary.

While Lake was confident in her now-confirmed electoral victory, she told reporters the following day that elections in Arizona ought to be finished by the end of the night, noting that dragged out races result in less confidence among voters.

“We’ve got to get our elections reformed so that every Arizonan, whether they be Democrat, Independent, or Republican, when they go to bed on Election Night they know the winner and they’re satisfied that it was a fair election. We don’t have that right now,” Lake said.

In the following days, more votes were tallied, and Lake’s lead continued to grow. Some noted the mainstream media’s hesitancy to call the race for Lake seemed strange, given that most had called the same state for Joe Biden very early on during the 2020 presidential contest.

In the end, Lake had amassed 46.8% of the vote to Robson’s 44.0% and secured victory in all of Arizona’s counties. She will now go on to face Hobbs in November to be the next governor of Arizona.

Lake now joins a large slate of Trump-endorsed Arizona Republican candidates who all saw victories in their elections this week, Valiant News reported.

These include Arizona Secretary of State candidate Mark Finchem, U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, Arizona State Sen. Wendy Rogers, U.S. Sen. candidate Blake Masters, Arizona Attorney General candidate Abe Hamadeh, and Arizona Senate candidate David Farnsworth, who defeated the current Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers.

    There is probably a common source for people who recommend “home businesses” and the advertising locations for them. I have seen a number of them on conservative publications, which do not edit them out. I’m not sure why they are allowed. Probably because it costs too much to hire editors to watch out for them.

    I think most of us ignore them. I cannot imagine anyone who is desperate enough to look them up, but we are having hard times, so it is possible. I believe most of them are pfishing sites to get your data. I would strongly advise people not to try to upload them.

    Lake is little more than a popular pretty face. People Sadly do not research their candidates before casting their vote. Most vote based on who endorses whom and popularity. Has no degrees and was merely a journalist and tv anchor which hardly qualifies one to inhabit the Governor’s mansion. Switching parties numerous times indicates a scattered mind, who could not possibly be an effective governor. Having supported Obama for BOTH terms indicates lack of integrity and good judgment. She has never held public office. Unfortunately she also has no plan, merely empty promises, “I’m going to fix Arizona.”

    Being a journalist and tv news anchor hardly qualifies one as governor. Holding a lower office previously would give her the experience needed for this huge responsibility. Even a managerial position or other position of real authority and responsibility would go a long way to developing the tools necessary to be an effective governor. Seriously, one cannot simply walk into a high office and effectively perform the responsibilities.

    I also worry if she will switch back to Democrat after being sworn in. I firmly believe she is liberal at heart. Yes, Trump and Reagan switched but ONCE!

    The governorship is not a popularity contest. One must be able the make the big decisions. Her record does not show any experience like this. My gut tells me she is going to be weak and give in to the Left.

    Kari Lake does not have proven ability to handle the pressures of the Office of the Governor.

      Time will tell! But I’d rather have someone who was NOT a lifelong politician and who has lived in the real world. It’s the political class which has screwed the country! MAGA

      Ronald Reagan was an actor before entering politics and becoming Governor of California!
      Would you claim he did not have the ability to handle the pressures?

    I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…
    🙂 AND GOOD LUCK.:)

    Ms. Lake will be an excellent governor if she can identify a good staff.
