The Arizona attorney general's office Saturday demanded answers to problems
Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright wrote to a top election official
She spelled out issues with on-demand ballot printers on election day
She also reported confusion about how to send voters to alternate sites
And she wrote that untabulated ballots were muddled with tabulated ballots
'These complaints go beyond pure speculation,' she added in her letter Kari Lake told DailyMail.com she was right to fight on in the governor's race 'I believe at the end of the day that this will be turned around,' she said Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has insisted she'll still become governor after the state's assistant attorney general demanded explanations to polling day issues before agreeing to certify Lake's Democrat rival's win.
GOP rising star Lake spoke exclusively to DailyMail.com Saturday after her campaign was handed a lifeline on Saturday when the state's attorney general's office demanded explanations for a string of election day problems before the final results can be certified.
Lake told DailyMail.com it vindicated her decision to fight on, even though the Associated Press and other news organizations called the race for her opponent.
With more than 95 percent of votes tallied, Lake trails Democrat Katie Hobbs by fewer than 18,000 votes. The Associated Press has already called the race for Hobbs - but Lake, who was widely expected to win the contest, is having none of it.
'The way they run elections in Maricopa County is worse than in banana republics around this world,' she said in an exclusive interview, referring to the state's most populous county.
'And I'll tell you what, I believe at the end of the day that this will be turned around and I don't know what the solution will be but I still believe I will become governor, and we are going to restore honesty to our elections.'
