KEEP CALM AND KARI ON: Lake Locks In GOP Gubernatorial Primary Win in Arizona

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.04.22

It’s over —Kari Lake has won the GOP gubernatorial primary race.

According to a report from Axios, the Trump-endorsed Lake defeated opponent Karrin Taylor Robson; she declared victory on Wednesday with about 186,000 votes left to count in the primary, but it wasn’t official until now.

From Axios:

The former Fox 10 anchor took the race by storm last year, becoming the immediate frontrunner with a style and message that closely emulated former President Trump. Lake’s campaign has been characterized by her combative style, anti-establishment rhetoric and unflinching support for Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election was rigged against him.

The battle between Lake and Robson became a proxy war between Trump and the establishment wing of the GOP. Trump endorsed Lake in September, while incumbent Gov. Doug Ducey and former Vice President Mike Pence threw their support behind Robson in July, around the time early voting began.

Lake will face off against Secretary of State Katie Hobbs in the general election.
