Former Arizona GOP candidate Kari Lake made a big announcement on Tuesday following Monday evening’s disappointing news that the Maricopa Superior Court had nixed her final legal challenge against the county’s signature verification processes from the November 2022 election.
“We’re officially launching the largest most extensive ballot chasing operation in our state’s history and, frankly, in American history,” Lake announced at a Tuesday afternoon press conference.
She addressed the recent disappointing ruling from Judge Thompson on her case, noting that she was not “shocked” by the verdict. “The system is corrupt from top to bottom,” she remarked.
Lake’s ballot-chasing operation will operate beneath the umbrella of her Save Arizona fund, which she revealed will now be multi-pronged.
“We’ve got to work in this rigged, corrupt system,” she explained. “…There are no rules where the left comes in…we’re going to push the legal envelope as far as we can push it.”
She pointed out that Arizonans wanted her to stay in the fight to save the Grand Canyon State, despite rumors swirling that she might announce a U.S. Senate bid.
Lake said that in 2022, 218,000 Republicans in Arizona didn’t show up to vote, along with a hefty number of Independents. “If you do the math, that’s about a half a million Republicans and Independents who let election day pass with that ballot sitting on their counter,” she commented.
Lake’s operation will be centered on registering voters, motivating voters to show up at the polls, and recruiting volunteers to help expand the movement in her home state and possibly beyond.
“We have millions of dollars committed,” Lake said.
Lake announced that despite the legal setback in the courts, she intended to continue fighting for election integrity and take her case to the United States Supreme Court.
