A judge overseeing Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake's electoral lawsuit ordered Lake, Secretary of State and Arizona Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs, Maricopa County Board of Supervisors officials, and others to appear at a court hearing on Tuesday.

Judge Peter Thompson, in issuing the (pdf) order, wrote that the court has "reviewed" Lake's "verified statement of election contest" and said the "matter will be set on an accelerated basis." Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer and Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates were also ordered to attend the hearing, which will start at 2 p.m. ET.

It comes as Lake stated Monday that her lawsuit is, in part, fueled by alleged whistleblower claims who have come forward.

"We've had three whistleblowers from Maricopa County reach out and say the system is seriously flawed," Lake told Just the News on Monday, days after the suit was filed with a Maricopa County court.

Wow! The Katie Hobbs campaign finally made sense when they said, "Kari Lake needs attention like a fish needs water... " And it is the same with all Arizonans, and Americans in general. But which Arizonans were they talking about when they also said, "Arizonans made their voices heard and elected Katie Hobbs as their governor?" Seems to me it was a bunch of Arizonans who don't want to correct any election wrongdoing... as opposed to all Arizonans who voted.
