The Associated Press called the Arizona gubernatorial race for Democrat Katie Hobbs at 9:30 pm Monday night. Hobbs, who stared down calls to recuse herself from overseeing her own election as Arizona’s secretary of state, is expected to certify her own election near the end of the month. Hobbs’ opponent, Kari Lake, who had been widely expected to win, may not go quietly into the night. Shortly before the “vote dump” that preceded the call, Lake was on Fox News’s “Jesse Watters Primetime.” (Video) “What’s going to happen when we hear about this vote dump?” asked Watters. “I don’t know… We think we should be in good shape,” she said,

This is much bigger than just Kari as governor. The establishment is terrified of her as a potential president some day, so they had to make sure she didn’t win the first step there. The Arizona cheaters had help from cheaters at a very high level. They would have done the same to DeSantis but he was able to preempt it in the last four years. You’ve been overrun by evil. God help us. Please.

It's 2020 all over again in Arizona. Her words are true but will ring hollow, and if anything is to be done about it this time the approach will have to be more solid and legally founded.

Why didn't Lake flag these issues more loudly BEFORE the election? Such as Hobb's running the election and running for governor at the same time.

To hell with a recount. Re-do the election. One day, in-person, photo ID required, and manually count ballots at the precincts. Do not accept 'recently discovered' ballot boxes. I know, the dems will squeal like stuck pigs. Marc Elias' lawfare machine will kick into high gear--not to mention the fact that Hobbs never recused herself as AZ SoS--and Doug Doocy, ever the GOPe hack, apparently has resigned himself to be the lame duck. Of course a re-do election would upset the great recalibration model in American politics since 2020: It's not the quality of the Dem party candidate that counts, but how to maximize the ballot counts.

#16 mentions the only valid solution but it will not be implemented unless the screaming is loud enough and the penalties are stiff enough. It will be found that every republican cheated out of a position actually won his election. Except for Donald Trump, he will always be the guy who lost to Brainless Joe and created an insurrection because to admit otherwise would kill the democrat party.

RE #8 - She did and often without any support from the Republican Governor of Arizona. BTW - per Kari Lake on a recent interview before the election said that AZ law only requires an office seeker to resign/recuse themselves when they're running for the office they currently occupy so Katie's excuse was: I'm not running for SoS (again).

You can go back to the Al Franken disaster in Minnesota. Democrats just keep finding and counting ballots until they win. Repubs say they races were all close. Well the fact is, they were close only because democrats need to print the number of ballots they need to win. They don't need a recount they need an audit. Wake up.

Maybe another poster can verify if this is true or not...

A Texas inmate who killed his pregnant ex-girlfriend and her 7-year-old son more than 17 years ago was executed on Wednesday, after courts rejected his appeals over claims of religious freedom violations and indifference to his medical needs. Stephen Barbee, 55, received a lethal injection at the state penitentiary in Huntsville. He was pronounced dead at 7:35 p.m., 26 minutes after a fatal dose of pentobarbital began flowing into his body. Barbee had been condemned for the February 2005 deaths of Lisa Underwood, 34, and her son Jayden. Both were suffocated at their home in Fort Worth.

U.S. Sen. Patty Murray will likely be the first woman to serve as Senate president pro tempore, a position that would place her third in line for the presidency. Murray will also likely chair the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee, controlling the federal purse strings and directing billions of dollars of spending. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer plans to nominate Murray, who was just elected to a sixth term, to the position, Murray’s office said Wednesday. The Senate president pro tem presides over the Senate in the vice president’s absence. The position is third in line for the presidency, after the vice president and the House speaker.
