The governor-elect, Kattie Hobbs, prevailed over her Republican challenger, Kari Lake, in the country’s western state.
The former president of the United States, Donald Trump (2017-2021) added a new defeat to her bulky list of failures in the mid-term elections that were held last week when the controversial woman she supported for the Governor’s Office declared himself the loser. Arizona.
Kari Lake, Republican candidate, and former television presenter, was defeated by Democrat Katie Hobbs, as projected by the main US media, after a whole week of scrutiny in which the progressive candidate narrowly defeated her conservative rival.
Lake was one of the candidates who had the explicit support of Trump, to the point that she was considered a personal bet by the former president.
The applicant, happy with this role, repeated mantras from the former president, such as that the 2020 presidential election was a robbery and that Trump won his rival and current president of the country, Joe Biden.
Lake thus joins a long list of candidates supported by Trump in last Tuesday’s elections who have lost at the polls -many of them candidates for the House of Representatives, but also for senators, governors and local positions-, something that the Political analysts in the US blame the electorate for being fed up with the former president, even among the Republican ranks.
The circumstance also occurs that Arizona was, until the years of the Trump Presidency, a strongly conservative state but has now become one of the so-called hinge states, which can opt for both the progressive and conservative sides.
