Gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake (R-AZ) says she’s already putting her team together despite the delayed election results in Arizona.
We won this election on Election night.
Everything after was narrative.
They didn't want @KariLake to have her victory speech.
They want you to think this isn't a movement. They are very wrong.
When this victory comes, we're going to celebrate.
Then Kari is going to lead. pic.twitter.com/NHf5JpcEhV

With only 70% of the vote reported, Kari Lake currently has 49.6% of the vote while her opponent, sitting Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D-AZ), hangs on to a slim margin of less than one percentage point.
Lake seems determined to keep the razor-thin margin from spurring her confidence.
Appearing on “Just the News, No Noise,” Lake insinuated that addressing the border crisis is at the top of her administration’s agenda.
“I had meetings with staff yesterday,” Lake said enthusiastically. “We’re working already on moving forward on transition and we are bringing in an entire staff that is dedicated to just our border plan.”
Lake also said she’s prepared to take legal action against the Biden administration for lack of action to impede the influx of illegal immigrants flooding the border from around the world.
“We’re looking at hiring attorneys already and some really top-notch people who understand the Constitution, the border and how to deal with the federal government.”
“We have a plan called ‘Defend Arizona’ and we’re going to lean heavily on Article One, Section 10 of the US Constitution,” she continued. We’ll issue a declaration of invasion on day one.”
Lake also didn’t shy away from addressing the fentanyl crisis, labeling the drug a “weapon of mass destruction.”
“We’re going to work to stop people from coming over illegally and shut down the fentanyl trafficking that is flowing through Arizona. This is a weapon of mass destruction.”
Lake also touched on the relevant topic of election integrity and her plans to spearhead a major overhaul if elected.
“We’re not going to have this continue when I’m governor. “I can rest assured I will win,” declared Lake. “We know that votes are left to be counted and we know they are going to lean heavily Republican. And we’re going to restore faith and honesty in our elections starting on day one.”
