Former television news anchor Kari Lake is projected to win Arizona’s Republican gubernatorial nomination, handing a high-profile win to former President Trump.

The Associated Press called the race at 10:09 p.m. ET on Thursday, two days after votes were cast.

Polls in the lead up to Election Day showed Lake leading Karrin Taylor Robson, who had the backing of Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) and former Vice President Mike Pence.

Trump last year endorsed Lake, who touted the former president’s unfounded claim that the 2020 election was stolen from him.
