GOP Senate candidate in Arizona, Kari Lake, when asked whether or not she was an “election denier,” responded with a long list of democratic politicians who have denied the results of elections ranging from Brian Kemp’s gubernatorial win in Georgia to Donald Trump being elected President over Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Let's talk about "Election Deniers."

“It’s OK for Democrats to question elections, but it’s not OK for Republicans? It’s a crock of BS, every one of you knows it,” Lake said. “We have our freedom of speech and we’re not going to relinquish it to a bunch of fake news propagandists.”
Lake is a former television news anchor, and just two years after leaving her job in the newsroom, she is the GOP candidate to be Arizona’s next Governor. She is also a Donald Trump-endorsed candidate who has been supported recently by other politicians like Glen Youngkin and Tulsi Gabbard.
According to a recent FiveThirtyEight poll, the race between Lake and Katie Hobbs (D) is too close to call. In May, Lake was behind by more than five points, but she currently enjoys a 47.1% to 46.4% lead in the polls.
Lake was asked recently if she would accept the election results if she loses, a question that no politician should answer because it puts the term “lose” in the same sentence as your name. Her response: “I’m going to win the election and I’m going to accept that result.”
Rather than accepting that answer as a legitimate way to show confidence with the vote just around the corner, the liberal media have run with the idea of Lake being an “election denier.” Lake’s most recent interview, where she flipped the script on the liberal media, may stop interviewers from asking her if she will accept a loss again.
Lake did show her true feelings on elections when she said, “When I’m governor, we’re gonna make sure we have honest elections. We want the Democrats, independents, and Republicans to all know their vote counted. We want fair, honest, and transparent elections.”
At the time of this writing, her tweet has garnered more than 1.7 million views.
