Kari Lake continues where she left off with her conspiracy theories about the presidential election. She has parroted Trump’s claims that the 2020 elections were stolen and refused to answer if she would accept a loss in Arizona thrice.
The GOP Arizona gubernatorial nominee indicated that she would agree to take nothing short of an outright win in November. The former news anchor from the Phoenix area has campaigned with a one-point agenda, to establish that the 2020 elections were rigged. She made Trump’s loss the mainstay of Lake’s campaign.
Kari Lake has said that she would not have certified the results of the 2020 election that her mentor Trump lost. Biden won by more than 10,000 votes in Arizona and claimed that the voting was rotten and corrupt.
Kari Lake Repeatedly Evaded Questions About Accepting The Midterm Election If She Lost
As a CNN program anchor, Dana Bash repeatedly asked Kari Lake several times whether Lake would readily accept the midterm elections results. She evaded the question and would only say that she would accept the election results as a winner, obliquely admitting that she would again pick up the yarn of the rigged the election if she lost.
She is confident that she will win the gubernatorial elections and will only accept her win as true. She refused to give a straight reply when Bash pointedly asked if she would accept the results if she lost.
She would only say that she would only accept a win and there could be no other way about it. Denying the 2020 presidential election results has become an integral part of the Republican political discourse and their election campaign.
Leading up to the election this fall, close to 300 GOP nominees, an overwhelming majority, have either questioned or outright denied the results of the presidential election that Trump lost.
Arizona is among the several states where the Republicans who have denied the 2020 election results could end up winning. They would also have a say in how future elections are held.
Kari Lake was recently berated by the GOP vice-chair of the Select Committee, Liz Cheney. She warned citizens against backing her for saying that they would only accept a win in the midterms.
