When people went to sleep last night in Arizona, it wasn’t looking great for Kari lake.
However, it was possible that she pulled it out in the morning. Many people still believe it is too close to call in Arizona’s gubernatorial race.
She’s currently ahead by 11,324 votes — she has 46.2 percent and Karrin T. Robson 44.5. Donald Trump has endorsed Lake. Taylor Robson was also endorsed by former Gov. Mike Pence and Doug Ducey also endorsed Lake. Although more than 11,000 votes seem like a substantial lead, only 88 percent have voted. It’s unclear what they’re waiting to call it, given the difference. People are reminiscing about how Arizona was called in 2020. They now think it’s being called later.
Trump-endorsed Kari Lake (R) has taken the lead over Gov. Ducey-backed Karrin Taylor Robson (R) by 11,324 votes (1.8 pts) in the #AZGOV GOP primary w/ more EDay ballots counted, and it doesn’t look like she’s giving it back.

Lake already acts like the winner and challenges Katie Hobbs, the winner of the Democratic primaries for the seat.
Get ready, @katiehobbs 😃

Lake was formerly an anchor on Fox 10 KSAZ TV
It’s a great thing for Trump-supporting people, but not so much for Meghan McCain. She had been celebrating what she believed was a Robson win, but then the tide changed and she deleted her tweet.

She then attacked the MAGA people.
I see my initial predictions were right despite the initial excitement of Robson pulling ahead –
Congratulations to my home state for full making the transition to full blown MAGA/conspiracy theory/fraudster.
The voters have spoken – be careful what you wish for…

We’ll now have to wait and see what Hobbs brings.
