According to CBS News, Democratic candidate Katie Hobbs has defeated Republican Kari Lake in the campaign for governor of Arizona.
As a result, Ms. Lake, who promoted the hoax that Donald Trump won the 2020 US election, is called out.
At her acceptance speech, Ms. Hobbs pledged to work for all residents of the state “in this moment of divide.”
Ms. Lake seemed to imply that the outcome was erroneous and that some of the votes cast in her favor had been disregarded.
Nearly a week after the votes were cast, the battle for control of the House of Representatives is still close.
Republicans’ chances of taking control of the House of Representatives have significantly diminished; they must now win at least 218 seats.
Ms. Hobbs appealed for togetherness in a midterm election that further exposed the sharp ideological divide in America and pledged to work for Arizonans who did not support her.
Even in this time of divide, she asserted, “I think there is so much more that unites us.”
