On Thursday night, Arizona’s FOX 10 Channel aired the “results” of the upcoming gubernatorial election 12 days before the actual election during their live broadcast.
FOX 10 posted an election update in the lower lefthand corner of their screen with Democrat Katie Hobbs ahead in the race by 7 points.
Katie Hobbs currently trails Republican Kari Lake by 11 points in the latest FOX 10 poll.
That’s an 18-point swing!
The broadcast did not go unnoticed.
Kari Lake tweeted this out.

This is also Kari Lake’s former TV station, where she was the number one anchor until she decided to walk away from the fake news media.
Charlie Kirk also tweeted on the broadcast error.

FOX 10 Phoenix later announced this was an error caused by the Associated Press during testing.
This graphic was never meant to go on air — the numbers were only part of a test. The station has taken steps to make sure this cannot happen again.

This was just the latest media interference into the gubernatorial race.
Obviously, Fox 10 and AP are already betting against Kari Lake big, despite her massive lead in the polls.
