Kari Lake, the Republican candidate for governor of Arizona, is appealing the decision of a court in Maricopa County to reject her case challenging the results of the midterm elections.

Nevertheless, in the interest of reestablishing trust and candor in our electoral process, I will appeal his verdict,” Lake declared right before Christmas.
