Kari Lake expresses doubts about the fairness of the 2024 election

Kari Lake, a candidate for the Arizona Senate, recently expressed her lack of confidence in the fairness of the 2024 election. This statement aligns with her previous engagement in election denial conspiracies, which had legal consequences for her 2022 gubernatorial campaign.

During an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Lake expressed her strong opposition to the idea of promoting voter registration during Medicare and Medicaid sign-ups. She voiced concerns that this approach could potentially contribute to a conspiracy aimed at generating fraudulent votes.

According to the speaker, the intention behind encouraging individuals to register to vote when enrolling for Medicare and Medicaid is to have their names included in the voter rolls. This, in turn, allows someone else to cast a vote on their behalf. The speaker suggests that by offering various services and requesting voter registration, a line is created in the voter rolls, enabling another person to vote using that individual’s name.

Lake confidently stated that she is completely certain that the idea is aimed at allowing undocumented individuals residing in the country to vote in the upcoming 2024 election. It is important to note that the notion of noncitizens voting has often been associated with the baseless white supremacist conspiracy theory known as the “great replacement theory.” However, it is crucial to highlight that there is no substantial evidence to support the claim that noncitizens have significantly participated in elections in recent times.

She expressed skepticism about the fairness of the 2024 election, stating that she wouldn’t have much confidence in its outcome.

During her unsuccessful 2022 Arizona gubernatorial campaign, she repeatedly made false claims about the 2020 election being stolen. Even after her own election loss to Gov. Katie Hobbs (D), she continued to deny the results.

Lake and her campaign have been facing legal scrutiny due to the comments they have made. Her attorneys have had to pay substantial sanctions for bringing fraudulent legal cases, and she had to forfeit her defense in a defamation suit filed by a state elections official this year regarding fraud conspiracies.

In what is anticipated to be one of the nation’s closest Senate races, Lake is going head to head with Arizona Rep. Ruben Gallego (D), as the balance of power in the Senate hangs in the balance. Gallego has held a slight advantage over Lake in terms of fundraising and early campaign polling. Currently, the congressman maintains a 4.1 percent lead over Lake, according to The Hill/Decision Desk HQ average of polls.
