The Arizona gubernatorial election is one of the most closely watched in the nation.
This election has major 2024 implications.
And now Kari Lake caught Democrats in a terrible act of voter fraud that will have you shaking with rage.
Donald Trump endorsed former longtime news anchor Kari Lake early on in her campaign for governor.
The corporate media and political establishment wrote off Lake smearing her as an “election denier” and ridiculing her because Lake supported the Trump agenda including declaring an invasion at the southern border.
But in the final weeks of the campaign the charismatic Lake pulled ahead of her Democrat opponent Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs in the polls.
The momentum and grassroots energy reside with Lake.
And now Hobbs’ incompetence in her capacity as the state’s top election official is not a top campaign issue.
The state of Arizona got caught mailing out ballots listing federal election offices only to voters eligible to cast ballots in state elections as well.

Lake’s campaign issued a statement blasting Hobbs for this attack on election integrity and demanding Hobbs step down as secretary of state before Hobbs does any more damage to the confidence in elections.
The statement read:
The Kari Lake for Arizona campaign is calling for the most partisan Secretary of State in the history of Arizona, Katie Hobbs, to step down from her duties in administering the 2020 election when Hobbs will be on the ballot as a candidate for governor.
This is in response to Hobbs’s history of irrational bias and disdain towards Republicans in addition to what election investigators have reported to the public about serious issues affecting tens-of-thousands of ballots and voters in the 2020 election Hobbs oversaw.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and Arizona Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward issued a joint statement slamming Hobbs and noting this is the second ballot disaster happening on her watch that affected Republicans.
Ward and McDaniel noted that in the GOP primary multiple Pinal County GOP strongholds ran out of Republican ballots and 63,000 ballots were sent to the wrong voters.
The statement read:
During Arizona’s primary elections, the RNC and Republican Party of Arizona’s poll observer program documented and reported multiple failures by Pinal County’s Elections Administrator, including 63,000 mail-in ballots delivered to the wrong voters and multiple Republican-heavy precinct locations running out of ballots. This is a comprehensive failure that disenfranchises Arizonans and exemplifies why Republican-led efforts for transparency at the ballot box are so important. Pinal County Elections Director David Frisk should resign immediately.
Arizona was one of the states Trump supporters – led by Kari Lake – questioned the results of following the election.
Hobbs’ repeated incompetence in the secretary of state role is her audition for the role of governor of Arizona.
The last several weeks Hobbs suffered massive self-inflicted damage by fleeing reporters, hiding in bathrooms, and ducking debates with Lake.
Arizonans are getting an up-close look at Hobbs’ communication skills and on-the-job performance and they are not impressed.
