Watch: Projected Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs speaks at victory rally

PHOENIX — Democrat Katie Hobbs, the projected winner in the race to be Arizona’s next governor, held a victory rally in downtown Phoenix on Tuesday morning.

The Associated Press called the governor’s race Monday night after the latest round of vote releases gave Hobbs a big enough lead over Republican Kari Lake that the AP determined she would not relinquish it.

Vote counting had gone on for a week since Election Day on Nov. 8, as officials continued to tally massive amounts of late-arriving ballots.

Hobbs, Arizona’s current secretary of state, is the first Democrat to be elected governor in Arizona since Janet Napolitano in 2006.

She rose to prominence as a staunch defender of the legitimacy of the last election and warned that Lake, a former television news anchor, would be an agent of chaos.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
