Democratic candidate for Governor of Arizona Katie Hobbs

Democratic candidate Katie Hobbs has defeated Republican Carrie Lake in the race for governor of Arizona, according to CBS News.
The result is a reprimand from Lake, who has promoted the false claim that Donald Trump won the 2020 US election.
Declaring the victory, Ms Hobbs said she would “act at this contentious moment” for everyone in the state.
Mrs. Lake seems to be implying that the result was incorrect and that some votes for her were not counted.
Elsewhere, nearly a week after the vote, the race for control of the House remains tough.
Republicans need to win at least 218 seats to claim a majority in the House of Representatives, a severely diminished prospect.
The party currently has 215 seats while the Democrats have won 211, according to CBS News’ race forecast.
In a midterm election that further highlighted America’s strong partisan divides, Ms. Hobbs called for unity, saying she would work with Arizona who did not vote for her.
“Even in this divisive moment, I think there is a lot that connects us,” she said.
She thanked voters on Twitter, adding: “Democracy is worth the wait.”
However, Ms. Lake took a more combative tone on social media, tweeting that “Arizonans know BS when they see it.”
The candidate – who was endorsed by Trump – told the BBC during the campaign trail that the former president should not have to run again in the 2024 election because he “won the last election”. She predicted he would “come back avenging”.
In response to Lake’s expected loss, the former president posted on Truth social – a social media platform he founded.
“Wow! They just took the election out of Cary Lake. It’s really bad there!” he wrote.
There is no evidence that the 2020 election was stolen or that this month’s vote in Arizona was pulled from Lake.
The defeat brings Lake to the ranks of the major Trump-backed election deniers who lost last week. But the BBC News tally revealed that at least 125 Holocaust deniers had won the House, Senate and Conservative races.
