Election denier Kari Lake is not backing down from her claim that she is the rightful governor of Arizona as she prepares to run for the Senate in the fall.
Her arguments have been rejected in court. But as the 53-year-old ally of Donald Trump prepares for the next phase of her political life, her new e-book has made claims that deliberate manipulation of election tools cost her victory.
“I am the rightful governor of Arizona,” she writes. “The current occupant of the governor’s office is just a squatter.
“I am committed to restoring the fairness and integrity of Arizona’s elections.
“This is a mountain we cannot sacrifice.”
Kari Lake will unveil her memoir, Unafraid, on Tuesday, detailing her allegations of voter fraud and a manifesto for her upcoming run for the U.S. Senate.
