Though the final midterm election results for Arizona still are not in, the gubernatorial battle between Republican Kari Lake and Democrat Katie Hobbs is tight while the U.S. Senate race between Republican Blake Masters and incumbent Democrat Mark Kelly is still fairly close.
But Lake said Thursday in a radio interview that she is sure the Republicans will win.
Not only was she confident in the chances of both her and Masters, but she said in the SiriusXM interview that people who doubted that the endorsed candidates of former President Donald Trump will win will have to “eat their words.”
“We’re going to win, probably comfortably, and he’s going to win, and it’s going to be tighter. But we believe Blake Masters has a very, very, very good shot at winning. And they’re afraid. They wanted, the whole narrative, the whole reason they slow-rolled these results, was: ‘Oh, the Trump-endorsed candidates didn’t do well, didn’t do well.’ We’re going to win Arizona, and they’re going to have to eat their words,” Lake said.
