In Arizona, former TV news anchor and Trump supporter Kari Lake has won the Republican gubernatorial primary. Lake narrowly defeated lawyer and businesswoman Karrin Taylor Robson, who had the support of former Vice President Mike Pence and other prominent Republicans. Kari Lake put false claims about a stolen 2020 election at the center of her campaign and has said she would not have certified President Biden’s victory. Her victory follows other Arizona election deniers who won Republican nominations in Tuesday’s primary, including candidates for Congress, Senate and secretary of state.
