Failed gubernatorial candidate/Senate candidate Kari Lake was booed at the Arizona Republican convention when she claimed Arizona elections are corrupt. I mean, who doesn’t love a good conspiracy theory?
Lake said, “We don’t agree on everything. But one thing we can agree on is the elections in Arizona are a corrupt mess. Can we agree that the elections in Arizona are a corrupt mess? ”
Lake continues, “No? I know that more than anybody, and President Trump knows that more than everybody, this election is about making sure that our elections in 2024 are run fairly.
Interesting reaction by AZGOP to Kari Lake. https://t.co/yW26nyUBVK pic.twitter.com/36U4G0tPRA

Well folks, it seems like there are a lot of Republicans out there who have had enough of this stolen election nonsense being pushed by Trump and Lake. And let’s be honest, it’s not really helping their cause.
In fact, it looks like Kari Lake might end up finishing third in the likely three-way Senate race in Arizona. Ouch! Even at the Arizona Republican convention, she couldn’t catch a break and got booed. Talk about rough luck!
So here we are, folks. We have reached that point where Trump and his crew are grasping at straws. They’re reaching the end of the line and everyone knows it. The polling in both Iowa and New Hampshire suggests that there is a sizable number of Republicans who are tired of the Trump show and just want to move on.
Cue sad trombone music for Kari Lake getting booed. Seems like her dreams of becoming the next senator from Arizona might just be slipping away.
