GOP Election Deniers Lose Races for Key Offices in Battleground States

HeadlineNov 14, 2022

In Nevada, Democrat Cisco Aguilar defeated 2020 election denier Jim Marchant to become secretary of state. And in Arizona’s secretary of state race, Democrat Adrian Fontes beat out Republican Mark Finchem, who has ties to the far-right Oath Keepers group.

In Arizona’s governor’s race, Democrat Katie Hobbs has maintained her narrow lead over Republican Kari Lake. Lake, whose chances of overtaking Hobbs look increasingly slim, previously refused to say whether she would accept a loss, and has been predicting a major victory for days while making baseless allegations that election officials were slowing down the counting.
