After several days of uncertainty, reports reveal that Trump-backed Kari Lake won the GOP primary for Arizona governor.
Kari Lake has won the Arizona Republican gubernatorial primary, according to an Associated Press projection.
This victory continues Trump’s sterling record of candidate endorsements this primary season. But this win was bigger than anyone could have anticipated.
We officially won every single county in Arizona. Clean sweep of the State.
This isn’t MY win. This is OUR win.
Thank you, Arizona. ♥️
Trump’s candidate Lake won a clean sweep of every county in Arizona—a staggering victory no matter how you slice it.
And there was one more factoid that will have Democrats fearful they’ve lost the state.
“With the total number of GOP votes in, combined with what is left outstanding it is a near certainty at this point that Republicans will smash turnout records for a primary,” tweeted ABC 15 journalist Garrett Archer on Wednesday night.
Kari Lake’s GOP primary win continues Trump’s record for endorsing winning candidates. Lake’s victory was so dynamic, that she swept every country in the state of Arizona.
Not only that, but a local analyst says that it was the largest turnout for a primary election in Arizona history.
Republican voters outnumbered Democrat voters by 157,753 as of yesterday. This suggests rising enthusiasm among Arizona Republicans, versus Democrats.
This should result in a surge of voter support for Lake and other Republicans this November.
Democrats seemed to consider Arizona a “flipped” state after the 2020 Election. The state went for Biden (if you buy the narrative) and currently has two Democrat senators.
But this recent development is a possible sign that Republican support is growing by leaps and bounds.
You can’t ignore Donald Trump’s influence in this election. Her rival was Karrin Taylor Robson, who was backed by establishment Republicans and Mike Pence.
Lake, a former local news anchor, swept the state—despite such strong opposition. What should that tell you?
Donald Trump’s endorsement has ensured numerous GOP victories over this election cycle. It’s hard to imagine he won’t play a major role in voter turnout in November.
Democrats, meanwhile, are responsible for record inflation, skyrocketing gas prices, and endless crises.
They should be pretty worried right about now.
