Kari Lake Makes Big Announcement After New Data Emerges In Her Election

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Among the races being decided by razor-thin margins is the gubernatorial race in Arizona. Nearly a week after the election, Arizona is unbelievably behind in ballot counting for a state of its size. Now Republican Kari Lake is gaining on her Democratic opponent current Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs after being slightly behind in early counts.

Despite rumors that she has national intentions, Lake is focused on the current situation in her state of Arizona. On Election Day, Tuesday, Lake shot down reported rumors that she was considering becoming Donald Trump’s 2024 running mate.

Lake spoke with reporters on Tuesday afternoon and she wasted little time setting the record straight after a reporter asked her about potentially being picked to be Donald Trump’s 2024 running mate. Lake focused on her gubernatorial aspirations.

“I’m going to do two terms. I’m going to be your worst frickin’ nightmare for 8 years, and we will reform the media as well. We are going to make you guys into journalists again. So, get ready. It’s going to be a fun 8 years,” she said, adding that she planned to provide supporters with some voting advice.

“We are going to encourage people to stay in line, we are going to vote and stay in line, and the people of Arizona would walk over hot coals, and they would walk over broken glass to vote today, and I know that they can stand in line for a couple of hours if they have to. I know they’ll stand in line for eight hours if they have to,” she told a reporter.

The shenanigans in Arizona seem to be aimed at Republicans, who have been expected to turn out in person in greater numbers than the opposition. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson noted in an interview with Lake on Wednesday evening, “I mean, I’m not alleging a crime, but broadly speaking, its just criminal to screw it up this badly. Did anyone know this was going to happen? It’s outrageous.”

And notable data Elections Analyst Garrett Archer agrees with Lake, as he posted on Twitter.

Lake responded to the prediction from a noted data analyst and expert for a local outlet who tweeted on Saturday that potentially thousands of ballots favorable to her and other Republicans were about to drop.

“From the data guru himself,” Lake tweeted, citing ABC15’s Archer, quoting something he tweeted: “‘The GOP cavalry is coming.’”

“Buckle up, boys and girls. It’s about to get fun!” she added, along with an American flag emoji.

Archer, a former elections official in the state, tweeted earlier: “This is also big. The next batch of 114k late early drop-offs that were transmitted to the elections department will break in favor of @KariLake. Important note: We do not know when these ballots will be tabulated, but the GOP cavalry is coming.”

In an additional tweet, he noted late Saturday evening: “Being that guy again. Today’s 85K batch only included a portion of this 114K. The reason you haven’t seen any calls, is b/c The agencies know this is coming. It’s not a question that Rs will win the next batches. Only a question of by how much.”

Conservative Brief could not independently verify his information.

On Thursday, meanwhile, Lake told Fox News she was certain of victory.

“I am 100 percent going to win. I have absolute 100 percent confidence that I will be the next governor of Arizona,” Lake said, per the Western Journal.

Lake delivered what she called “good news” to Republicans on Thursday night about the closely-watched race in Arizona.

During an interview on Fox News, Lake spoke about her close gubernatorial race in Arizona against Democrat Katie Hobbs, which still has not yet been called. Lake said she believed that she would get a majority of the remaining votes, Conservative Brief reported.

Below is a transcript of the exchange, via Grabien:

HANNITY: “But back to our top story. All eyes are on Arizona and Nevada. These two states will decide the balance of power in the U.S. Senate. There are also two major gubernatorial races that are still hanging in the balance. In Arizona, Kari Lake is confident the remaining votes will put her over the top, but it will take days or however long it takes and at what cost. Here now with the very latest, Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake. This is a national disgrace.”

LAKE: “It’s not my fault. I’m the one who’s — I’m really suffering because we worked hard on that campaign, our followers have been so passionate and they’re waiting on pins and needles. I want them to know tonight I’m 100% confident we win this. People are so distrustful of our elections that they wanted to hand-deliver their mail-in ballot. And when they did that, we overwhelmed the system and they don’t have enough people to count them. This is why we need to reform our election laws, Sean. When they count those, by the way, we’re expecting them to go possibly 70% for us, maybe more.”
