An analysis of public voting records in the November race found that Democrat Katie Hobbs managed to pick up support from more than 33,000 Republican-leaning voters in Maricopa County, who backed GOP candidates in other state elections such as state treasurer.
In comparison, Kari Lake, a Donald Trump-endorsed 2020 election-denier, managed to gain only 5,953 votes from Democrat-leaning voters. Around 6,000 Republican-leaning voters also chose not to vote at all, or wrote in another candidate, rather than support Lake in November.

Kari Lake lost because “she ran a terrible campaign.” Data shows 33,000 Republicans in Maricopa County voted for Hobbs and thousands left it blank or wrote in a name rather than vote for Lake. They all voted GOP down ballot. Not cheating just bad campaign. https://t.co/v180pWm4Hf
