AZ Certifies 2022 Election Results As Some Republicans Threaten Challenges

  • Arizona election officials on Monday certified the state’s midterm election, as several Republican figures are still vowing to challenge the results in court.
  • Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs certified the election and became governor-elect during a meeting with state Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Brutinel, Gov. Doug Ducey (R) and state Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R).
  • GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake, who ran against Hobbs, filed a lawsuit late last month to secure documents about election irregularities. She pledged that more legal actions would occur soon.
