Trump slate sweeps Top Arizona Primary Races
Kari Lake wins Arizona GOP governor primary and is expected to face off against Katie Hobbs, who is currently Arizona’s Secretary of State
The Arizona GOP governor primary on Thursday evening was called for candidate Kari Lake, giving former President Donald Trump a clean sweep in the state in Tuesday night’s primaries.
She is expected to face off against Katie Hobbs, who is currently Arizona’s Secretary of State, to replace Republican Gov. Doug Ducey.
The Associated Press projected Lake as the winner with about 88.3% of the ballots counted. Lake came in with 46.8% of the vote. Lawyer Karrin Taylor Robson came in second to Lake with 44.0%.
Her victory is also a showdown between former President Trump and former Vice President Pence, the latter of whom endorsed Taylor Robson.
Lake celebrated her victory late Tuesday evening after a source told El American that she is the projected primary winner.
Lake, a former television news journalist, is known for her tough stance on the southern border.
“Kari will make her wonderful family, and the MAGA movement, very proud,” Trump said when he endorsed her.
Lake’s victory marked a perfect record for Trump-endorsed Republicans in the state’s major primary races. Venture capitalist Blake Masters claimed the party’s senatorial nomination while Mark Finchem won the secretary of state primary, and Abe Hamadeh won the attorney general primary contest.
