Former television news anchor Kari Lake has won the Republican primary for Arizona governor.
Lake walked away from her journalism career and was embraced by Donald Trump and his staunch supporters.
Her victory Thursday is a blow to the GOP establishment, which lined up behind lawyer and businesswoman Karrin Taylor Robson.
Lake said she would not have certified President Joe Biden’s 2020 victory and put false claims of election fraud at the center of her campaign.
Former Vice President Mike Pence, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and others tried to push the GOP to move on from the Trump era of election conspiracies and lies.
Lake will face Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs in the general election.
