Kari Lake, ‘100% Confident We’re Going To Win,’ Promises Action To Stop Future Election Nightmares

Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake joined “The Charlie Kirk Show” on Real America’s Voice this morning to discuss the state of the election in Arizona, where more than half a million ballots still need to be counted two days after the election.

Lake told Kirk that she is “100% confident” she will win, as the majority of votes remaining tend to favor Republicans. She then promised that, as Governor of Arizona, her first action will be to call a special legislative session where the new Republican Congress will be asked to solve the state’s infamous election system.

“I’m frustrated like everyone else, it’s embarrassing the way elections are held in Arizona. This why I’ve been sounding the alarm since 2020,” she explained, before promising, “we are going to reform it” for future elections.

“I feel 100% confident we’re going to win this,” Lake declared, echoing remarks she made during her election night speech. “I hate that they’re slow rolling and dragging their feet and delaying the inevitable, and they don’t want to put out the truth, which is we that won.”

Watch an excerpt of Lake’s interview on Spreely.video:

“Yesterday we waited, we gave them 24 hours and they released 62,000 votes. How embarrassing.”

The popular Republican added, “we have about 622,000 votes yet to be counted, and of those 384,000 are people who took their mail in ballot and walked them in on election day. I think we all know how the majority of those people were going to vote.”

“We’re going to win this and there’s not a darn thing they can do about it, but they’re trying to pour cold water on this movement.”

These are remarks Lake repeated during her appearance on Steven Crowder’s “Louder with Crowder” podcast.

“These people received [the ballots] a month ago, but they didn’t trust, probably, most of them, dropping them off in a drop box or in the U.S. Postal Service,” Lake explained. “So they filled them out, they went into the voting center on election day, and handed them in.”

“Those ones haven’t been counted, those are most likely going to go 2:1, maybe even 3:1 or greater in my direction, in the Republicans’ direction.”

To Kirk, Lake revealed that she has “already been working with a transition team” with plans for immediate action after she takes office.

“I know we’re going to win this, and day one we’ll have a special session and say let’s restore faith in our elections,” Lake declared, adding that she will “get the lawmakers to do their jobs” and “sign legislation to restore faith and honesty in our elections.”

“I want one day voting, frankly,” she told Kirk. “We vote for a whole month here and it’s outrageous. We’ve got mail in ballots floating around all over, five going to a home with one registered voter.”

At press time, Arizona still has yet to exceed the 70% threshold of total votes reported. Maricopa County has indicated it plans to report some undisclosed number of ballots tonight.

With just 70% of votes reported two days after election day, Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who is in charge of running the election, remains ahead by razor thin margins.

Hobbs currently has 50.34% of the reported electorate with 953,783 votes compared to Lake’s 49.66% and 940,716 votes.
