image for Kari Lake Silent as Arizona Ballot Drop Confirms Almost Certain Defeat

Kari Lake, the Republican candidate for governor in Arizona, has yet to respond after Katie Hobbs' team declared the Democrat is the "unequivocal favorite" to win the midterm election.

While Lake managed to cut Hobbs' lead by around 10,000 following a ballot count on Sunday, experts have suggested that Lake will not be able to overcome Hobbs' lead with around seven percent of votes left to count.

According to the Arizona Mirror's analysis, Lake will need to win just over 58 percent of the remaining votes to surpass Hobbs, something Lake has failed to do in any of the post-election counts.

"At this point, there's one play left in the game and Lake needs a Hail Mary," Republican pollster Paul Bentz told the Arizona Mirror.

Justice Elena Kagan, who oversees the 9th Circuit, which includes Arizona, had blocked the subpoena temporarily while the high court considered the issue.

The select committee subpoenaed T-Mobile to obtain Ward’s records in January, seeking evidence related to her effort to aid Trump’s effort to seize a second term he didn’t win.

Ward quickly sued to prevent T-Mobile from releasing her phone records, and that case has been winding its way through the federal courts ever since. »
