Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake responded to speculation that she could be a conservative star if she pivots away from former President Donald Trump, who had endorsed her.
“If she concedes graciously in the coming days and weeks, then I think there could be a path for her in the future in politics in Arizona,” political consultant Lorna Romero told the Washington Examiner this week, adding that “it still seems like she is mulling over a potential lawsuit over the way Maricopa County handled the election” and if Lake “goes down that route, I think she will forever be branded as a Trump-type candidate.”
“I think her political career in Arizona will be over. At that point, her only path would be to be on a conservative talk show somewhere,” Romero said.
After the Washington Examiner published its story on Twitter, Lake responded: “Never.”

“President Trump announces his ‘24 Presidential run,” she wrote on Truth Social following the former president’s announcement that he will make a third bid for the White House. “He has my complete and total endorsement!”
During the Republican primary, Lake received Trump’s endorsement, allowing her to win the party’s nomination over a candidate who was backed by current Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and former Vice President Mike Pence.
Earlier this week, Democrat Katie Hobbs declared victory over Lake, although the GOP candidate has said she is aiming to assemble a legal team to file lawsuits amid reports of election irregularities in Maricopa County. At the same time, Lake said she won’t concede the race and said voters were disenfranchised or faced delays on Nov. 8.
“Rest assured I have assembled the best and brightest legal team, and we are exploring every avenue to correct the many wrongs that have been done this past week,” Lake, a local former TV news anchor, said in a new video published on Thursday. “I’m doing everything in my power to right these wrongs.”
And she added that “what happened to Arizonans on Election Day is unforgivable,” referring to delays at polling locations.
Also on her Twitter page, Lake posted videos from voters who alleged that tabulation machines on Election Day refused to take their ballots. Election officials in Maricopa County confirmed that vote tabulation machines in some precincts had printer problems, telling voters to place their ballots in on-site drop-boxes, which drew criticism from local GOP officials
Reports indicated that she traveled to Mar-a-Lago and met with the former president.
Kari should NEVER concede to these cheaters, NEVER!! And this Romero b i t c h can shove her opinion where the sun don’t shine.
Conflict of Interest Katie should have been forcibly removed from overseeing the elections after her refusal to do so voluntarily. She clearly has no morals and no integrity whatsoever. I pray that Kari exposes her corruption and gets the chance to fix the “mob style” election system the pathetic democrats have established there.
Kari Lake has more to her than Pence or any of the rest of the rinos can muster. Trump proved right every time except for thinking the opposition couldn’t think so vicious. He now knows. From set ups to murder. He learned as she now has. How many more bad acts will it take before the rest catch on to the war being played by our enemies from within being sponsored by foreign enemies now embedded. Like G. Soros who is involved in it all along with the dem party from president on down , the media and the foreign got aways . America is in trouble. The question is whether it can withstand the current onslaught against it. Only the people can answer it. Young minds seeking free stuff with liberal hate filled activists to be raised by, influenced by or threatened to vote a certain way is not how our system was made to work. May the constitution prevail and our people learn this lesson now taking place.
it seems when it comes to counting votes, especially in certain states run by democrats, it just can not be done. If only there was a machine that counted the votes, you know like the one that counts 100 dollar bills, OH WAIT, there is a machine that counts the votes, so WHY does it take so long to count the votes? WHY is it the machines that are used for voting continuously error out? WHY is it the same counties have the same problems YEAR AFTER YEAR? WHY is it that democrat run states have so many problems with voting tallies? WHY is it every year MYSTERIOUSLY voting ballots or thumb drives are found with uncounted ballots after every other vote has been counted? WHY is it that this is not a high priority for the DOJ, to find out why this happens REPEATEDLY?
