Lake has always maintained that the results were wrong because of issues with ballot printers at some polling stations in Maricopa County.
The former candidate has been a strong supporter of Donald Trump’s yet-to-be-proven allegations of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
This fight for electoral integrity has spread to his own race.
Lawyers for Lake insist that “public confidence in the election is at rock bottom” and “confidence must be restored” by granting “a review to correct this manifest error.”
Promise kept!@KariLake swore to the people of Arizona that she would take our fight for electoral integrity to the Supreme Court of Arizona.
Today his lawyers asked to do just that.
We pray for justice.https://t.co/L4i94akDa9 https://t.co/B1dtxw1mU2

The AP admits that “faulty printers produced ballots that were too light to be read by on-site tabulators at polling places,” but county officials insisted the votes were properly recorded in them. leading to “more sophisticated counters in the Elections Department”. Headquarter.”

Poll suggests Republican voters don’t support claims
A research firm known as OH Predictive Insights recently asked a sample of registered voters in Arizona their thoughts on the gubernatorial election results.
Three-quarters of all respondents, including a majority of Republican voters (58 percent), agreed with the following statement:
“Although the election did not go perfectly, there is no credible evidence of voter fraud widespread enough to have changed the outcome of the election.”
“Regardless of the story of a stolen gubernatorial election coming from Kari Lake, acceptance of Katie Hobbs’ victory is shared by majorities across parties,” said Mike Noble, @OHPredictive head of research. https://t.co/VotLPHEaib
