An Arizona judge has handed a massive win to Kari Lake by ordering the Republican gubernatorial candidate’s election fraud case to move forward to a trial.
The court also denied a motion to dismiss the lawsuit from Arizona’s Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who was declared the “winner” in the governor’s race.
“Our Election Case is going to trial,” Lake announced on Twitter.
“Katie Hobbs’ attempt to have our case thrown out FAILED.
“She will have to take the stand & testify.
“Buckle up, America. This is far from over.”

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson dismissed the defendants’ motions to dismiss Lake’s historic stolen election lawsuit.
The trial will proceed with evidentiary hearings on Wednesday and Thursday this week.
Lake’s attorneys gave an oral argument in court over the motions to dismiss.
The outcome of the hearing marks the first time an election case has gone to trial since 2020.
.@KariLake going to trial is one of the biggest victories for election integrity we've had in decades.
Don't let them down play this. It's huge.

Kari Lake joined Bannon’s War Room live from TPUSA’s AmericaFest in Phoenix, Arizona, to discuss her historic lawsuit.
A Runbeck whistleblower revealed in Lake’s filing that hundreds of thousands of ballots had no chain of custody documentation.
This is a shocking and massive violation of the law.
Twenty-five thousand ballots were added to Maricopa County’s totals after election day with no explanation of why the number of remaining ballots could increase.
Also, tens of thousands of mail-in ballots with mismatched signatures were illegally counted in violation of Arizona law.
They are going to trial on the major chain of custody issue which could overturn the election.
The issues regarding fraudulent mail-in ballots and signature verification were tossed.
