Kari Lake Says She ‘Will Become Governor’ After Attorney General’s Letter

Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake proclaimed on Nov. 19 that she will become governor, after the state attorney general’s office demanded explanations about alleged Election Day problems in the state’s largest county.

“The way they run elections in Maricopa County is worse than in banana republics around this world,” Lake, a Republican rising star, told the Daily Mail.

Lake was responding to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office opening an inquiry (pdf) into polling issues in Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix and other cities, following ballot-tabulation issues that were confirmed by Maricopa County officials on Nov. 8. Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright demanded that evidence be turned over on or before Maricopa County submits its official canvass to the Secretary of State.”

On Nov. 19, Wright wrote to Maricopa County about printer problems on Election Day, which reportedly sparked confusion among voters. Maricopa County official Bill Gates and Recorder Stephen Richer on Nov. 8 told reporters that a printer issue was to blame and instructed affected voters to place their ballots in drop boxes.

As of the morning of Nov. 20, Lake was trailing Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs by about 18,000 votes. Last week, Hobbs declared victory in the race.

Lake, a former anchor for FOX10 in Phoenix, told the Mail that she believes “at the end of the day, this will be turned around.”

“I don’t know what the solution will be but I still believe I will become governor, and we are going to restore honesty to our elections,” she said.

On Nov. 17, Lake said she would continue her fight in the state’s governor’s race after Hobbs declared victory.

“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 said. “I’m doing everything in my power to right these wrongs. My resolve to fight for you is higher than ever.”

Since then, Lake has posted videos from voters who say they experienced issues during Election Day.
