Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake joined Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday evening to provide a major update on her lawsuit against Maricopa County following her loss to Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.

Lake believes her lawsuit will prevail and said she’s willing to “take it all the way to the Supreme Court” if necessary.
“We’re ready to go with what we believe to be an exceptional lawsuit. And we believe we will be victorious in that lawsuit,” Lake told Steve Bannon on the War Room podcast earlier this week. “We’ll take it all the way to the Supreme Court if we have to. We will not stop fighting.”
“We’re ready to go with what we believe to be an exceptional lawsuit. And we believe we will be victorious in that lawsuit,” Lake continued.
Last week, U.S. District Judge John Tuchi of the District of Arizona issued a scathing rebuke of a separate lawsuit filed by Lake, which then lead her team to respond with a rebuke of their own.
“Imposing sanctions, in this case, is not to ignore the importance of putting in place procedures to ensure that our elections are secure and reliable,” Tuchi wrote in his order. “It is to make clear that the Court will not condone litigants ignoring the steps that Arizona has already taken toward this end and furthering false narratives that baselessly undermine public trust at a time of increasing disinformation about, and distrust in, the democratic process.
“It is to send a message to those who might file similarly baseless suits in the future,” Tuchi’s order said.
“This case is not about money or gain,” said Lake campaign spokesperson Ross Trumble in a statement to media outlets following the judge’s ruling and fine. “It was essentially a public interest lawsuit seeking electoral integrity.
“It is very, very rare to sanction a party in public interest suits. All in all, this reads like an angry Obama appointee who wants to send a message. The message is if you lose, shut up and don’t come to court. The message is not that you lost a case or acted in bad faith,” he added.
