Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has provided a big update on the election lawsuit she has filed, challenging the victory of Democrat Katie Hobbs.
Lake lost the gubernatorial race by approximately 17,000 votes, but she is asking a Maricopa County Superior Court judge to overturn those results. The judge heard from Kari Lake’s attorneys this week in the lawsuit which alleges widespread voter fraud throughout the state.
Lake appeared on Fox News to speak with Tucker Carlson on the status of her lawsuit. Watch the video below.
Thank you, @TuckerCarlson for allowing me to discuss the Election Day sabotage that occurred in Arizona and my lawsuit against Katie Hobbs and Maricopa County.

In the interview with Carlson, Lake addressed several issues with voting machines and tabulators and provided insight into the case she filing:
“Well, and it had a huge effect. Obviously, Tucker our voters were showing up on election day. That was no secret. And the minute the polls opened, the wheels fell off the ballot printers weren’t working there wasn’t enough toner in the printers. The tabulators weren’t working it became a debacle and the line started forming right away some of the lines three hours, four hours, five hours. And there’s video of people walking out of line people told us and this is in our lawsuit that they showed up they couldn’t even find parking because the parking lots were filling the lines for long and many people didn’t even get to vote and those who did vote when they went up to you know get the printer out the printer didn’t have toner in it so the ballots weren’t dark enough.”
“The Election Day voting was sabotage and that’s what our case is going to prove. It’s a 70-page lawsuit that reads like a real crime novel. And it’s shocking what they did. The man who runs Maricopa County elections, ran a PAC he actually started a PAC raising 1000s of dollars to defeat me and he’s running our elections and then my opponent oversees all the elections in Arizona. It was a conflict of interest and not only was Katie Hobbs working with big tech to censor people, the man who runs Maricopa County elections, they were also censoring people as well online.”
Attorneys for Katie Hobbs, the current winner of the Arizona gubernatorial race, plan to file motions to dismiss the lawsuit and proceed with the oath of office ceremony on January 2nd. Conservative Brief reported:
“In response to Lake’s 70-page complaint, attorneys for Secretary of State and Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs, as well as attorneys representing Maricopa County elections officials, plan to file motions to dismiss the case. Hobbs certified her own win over Lake on Monday with outgoing Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, Attorney General Mark Brnovich, and state Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Brutinel as witnesses.”
The Maricopa County judge overseeing this case has indicated there will be a ruling in the near future so as not to drag the case on for months. However, Lake is adamant that her lawsuit will be successful and is prepared to appeal any rulings not in her favor.
“We’re ready to go with what we believe to be an exceptional lawsuit. And we believe we will be victorious in that lawsuit. We’ll take it all the way to the Supreme Court if we have to. We will not stop fighting,” Lake proclaimed.
