Lake Refuses to Accept Defeat in the Arizona Governor’s Election: Refusing to accept loss, Kari Lake, the lost Republican candidate for governor of Arizona, said Thursday that she is putting together a team of attorneys and gathering proof that voters had difficulties casting ballots on Election Day as she examines her next course of action.
In a 2 1/2-minute video, Lake offered her most in-depth public remarks since losing the election, but she made no indication of giving up. She had declined to declare that she would give up the campaign to Democrat Katie Hobbs before the election.

You may be confident that Lake has put together the greatest and brightest legal team, and we are looking into every option to undo the numerous wrongs committed over the past week. I’m taking all the necessary steps to make these injustices right.
She cited lengthy waits at several polling stations in Maricopa County, the state’s largest county, which were made worse by issues with ballot printers at approximately a third of the voting centers. She said that the issues rendered ineligible voters who couldn’t wait in line at the polls.
She declared that “what happened to Arizonans on Election Day is unacceptable.” Voters may travel to any polling location in the county, many of which had little to no lineup, with wait times provided online, according to county election authorities who said that all ballots had been counted.
A printer setting that occasionally resulted in ballots printing too softly for the on-site tabulators to read was the source of the issues, according to election officials. They said there were no significant difficulties because they used identical settings for pre-election testing and the primary in August.
Since The Associated Press and other news outlets declared Hobbs the winner on Monday, Lake has been relatively silent. She tweeted a video late on Wednesday with images from the campaign trail synced to the song “I Won’t Back Down.”
