The state of Arizona has sued the Republican-controlled county of Cochise after its Board of Supervisors refused to certify the results of the 2022 election. The lawsuit was filed by Arizona’s Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who defeated Republican, Trump-endorsed candidate Kari Lake in the closely watched gubernatorial race. On Monday, Arizona’s largest county, Maricopa, certified the election results after a raucous public meeting where supporters of Lake claimed the election was rigged, without offering evidence. Lake is a loyal supporter of Trump’s false claims of a rigged 2020 presidential election, and she has refused to concede after losing to Katie Hobbs.
