Mark Kelly tells people in Arizona to abandon old conspiracy theories
Recently re-elected Senator Mark Kelly is asking Arizona residents to stand together and ditch yesterday’s conspiracy theories.
Arizona has been central to former President Donald Trump’s attempt to upend the 2020 election and has cast doubt on the legitimacy of Joe Biden’s election victory.
In a speech Saturday after he was apparently re-elected, Kelly urged Arizona to stay away from the conspiracy theories that have characterized the state’s political life over the past two years.
Kelly defeated Republican Blake Masters, who Trump endorsed along with a number of other Republican politicians in Arizona after falsely claiming that the real winner in 2020 was Trump.
After a long election campaign, it is tempting to focus on what divides us. But we have seen the consequences of some of our leaders’ refusal to accept the truth and instead focus on yesterday’s conspiracy theories rather than solving today’s challenges, he said.
On Saturday evening, not enough votes were counted to determine whether Trump-backed Carrie Lake would win the governor’s election.
Lake, who denies that the 2020 election went straight, was 1.4 percentage points behind Democrat Katie Hobbs, who was responsible in 2020 for the cancellation of the Arizona election. But many analysts believe it will be difficult for Lake to catch up.
Democrats feared in advance that Lake and the state’s chief administration and attorney general nominees would win the election and endanger democracies.
Together, the three, all election deniers, could have had the power to change part of the election laws and refused to agree to an election they lost.
They themselves said they would not have approved Biden’s election two years ago in Arizona, which was one of the states that narrowly transitioned from Republican to Democratic by a narrow margin and secured Biden’s victory after so long. .
But it turned out on Friday that Marc Finchim lost the presidential election to Democrat Adrian Fontes, who called Finchim a danger to democracy. (NTB)
