(ConservativeHub.com) – Former Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake who lost against Democrat Katie Hobbs by more than 17,000 votes is on a quest to overturn her state’s midterm elections, according to a report from Newsweek.
Lake, who has refused to accept the election results, had previously filed a lawsuit claiming that the election results were inaccurate and that there were widespread cases of voter fraud in Arizona. Despite her claim previously being dismissed, Kari Lake has stated that she is willing to appeal to the Supreme Court if needed in order to get the election overturned.
Lake, who is a vocal supporter of Trump and has backed his claims that the 2020 election has been stolen, recently made an appearance with Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Trump had previously endorsed Lake during her campaign.
During the event, Lake said that she would continue to fight because their movement is important and big and it is her job to take the case to court in order to secure the freedom of the people in Arizona again. She also mentioned that her work is a continuation of the work that Trump was doing for America in Arizona.
Lake’s case was originally dismissed by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson, who said that the ballot printer problems that arose in Maricopa did not stop voters from being able to vote, nor is the malfunctioning of the machines evidence of voter fraud.
The case is now set to be heard by Division I of the Arizona Court of Appeals on January 24.
