Kari Lake refuses to concede election — says she’s assembling a ‘legal team’

In the wake of her impending loss to Democrat Katie Hobbs in the race for Arizona governor, Republican Kari Lake is still refusing the to accept her loss and his now suggesting she’ll challenge the results.

News outlets have called the race for Hobbs, But Lake, who has regurgitated Donald Trump’s unproven claims of mass voter fraud, says she’s assembling a legal team that is “collecting evidence and data” from the election.

“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,” Lake said in a video she posted to Twitter Thursday. “I’m doing everything in my power to right these wrongs.”

“For two years, I’ve been sounding the alarm about our broken election system here in Arizona, and this past week has confirmed everything we’ve been saying,” Lake says in the video.

Lake partly blamed her loss on the fact that Hobbs, who was Arizona’s secretary of state, refused to recuse herself from overseeing the state’s election proceedings, saying “the fox was guarding the henhouse, and because of that, voters have been disenfranchised.”
