Arizona's GOP governor congratulates Hobbs on victory as Lake refuses to concede

Source: The Hill

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) on Wednesday congratulated Katie Hobbs (D) on her victory to succeed him after Republican nominee Kari Lake declined to concede the race.

Hobbs was declared the winner of the high-profile gubernatorial race last week, and Ducey on Wednesday met with her and offered his full support to begin the transition amid GOP allegations of voter disenfranchisement.

“Today I congratulated Governor-elect Katie Hobbs on her victory in a hard-fought race and offered my full cooperation as she prepares to assume the leadership of the State of Arizona,” Ducey said in a statement.

“My administration will work to make this transition as smooth and seamless as possible,” he added. “Our duty is to ensure that Arizona’s 24th Governor and her team can hit the ground running and continue our state’s incredible momentum.”

Hope he has good security. Seems to be a lot of sore loser Republicans with guns.

14. It would be nice if that became the new norm.

Like when we moved from Pope Benedict to Pope Francis.

From former Youth For Hitler turned Pope
TO a Pope who understands and shows by his actions that leading the faithful is first and foremost being a servant of God and treating others as Jesus taught us. NOT banging the Old Testament over people's heads.

Not that DU is religious, but people in high places that work with US instead of against US is a nice norm to have.

5. Because no one pays attention to the news on Thanksgiving Eve?

This is just my best guess. I really have no idea.

15. Maybe timing for turnover begins now.

The orange blob obstructed and did not transition Biden into office.

He pouted.

So if Gov is already needing to start the actual work soon, he might want to get our ahead of someone else "outing him" for working WITH DEMS - shudder - oh the horror.

21. "The orange blob obstructed and did not transition Biden into office."

A crime of great import, really! But in an era of outrage, it got pushed to the side. The transition of power is not just a formality. To impede that transition is unthinkable but not prosecutable?

12. Welcome to DU, Temeret!

Good to remember. We have to make sure the bad guys don’t reach critical mass. We need to make sure there are always more Dems in high office.

8. Does Lake think she will walk into

The governor’s office and start running things? She will be in for a rude awakening.

9. Just glad to see Ducey go bye bye!

Between him and Brewer, poor AZ had been a nightmare (although I think that was anticipated to happen when Obama tapped Napolitano for his administration - she is back in a position under Biden I just saw).
