Arizona on Monday officially certified the rigged 2022 election.
Democrat Katie Hobbs, who oversaw her own election as Secretary of State, was declared the winner.
“Arizona had a successful election,” Hobbs said. “But too often throughout the process, powerful voices proliferated misinformation that threatened to disenfranchise voters. Democracy prevailed, but it’s not out of the woods. 2024 will bring a host of challenges from the election denial community that we must prepare for.”
The Hill reported:
Arizona officials certified the state’s vote canvass on Monday, officially declaring winners in the high-profile gubernatorial and Senate races, among other contests, as GOP figures vow to fight the election results in court.
The certification paves the way for automatic recounts to begin in three close races — attorney general, state superintendent and a state House seat near Phoenix — and officials signed certificates of election for the other contests.
Hobbs’s team will now go before a state judge, who is poised to officially order the three recounts.
But Monday’s meeting is also likely to spark multiple GOP-led lawsuits, as gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake (R), who lost to Hobbs, and attorney general candidate Abe Hamadeh (R), who trails his Democratic rival by the slimmest of margins ahead of the automatic recount, promise to take legal action.
Under state law, they have five days to formally contest the results in court.
Republicans are expected to fight the results in court after Election Day tabulators across Maricopa County were not working.
This started with a single location. Then a few. Now, it's sounding as if this is widespread and very serious. https://t.co/4b5CmdUjnu
