Democrat Katie Hobbs would be the subsequent governor of Arizona after she topped Republican Kari Lake, NBC Information projected Monday evening.
Hobbs, Arizona’s present secretary of state, edged out the victory over Lake, a former tv information anchor and staunch ally of former President Donald Trump.
Hobbs garnered 50.4% of the votes forged within the razor skinny race out of the roughly 2.5 million votes counted to date a few week after Election Day, based on an NBC Information tally.
Hobbs would change outgoing Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican who has served since 2015.
