On Monday, after the race was called for Hobbs, Cheney returned the favor to Lake:
Cheney was hardly alone.
Lake was a divisive figure within her party and within her state, telling supporters of the late Sen. John McCain, a Republican who was popular on both sides of the aisle in Congress and across Arizona, to “get the hell out.”
CNN’s Kyungh Lah reported:
An Arizona Republican strategist texted me this tonight: “Kari Lake told a legion of John McCain supporters across Arizona that they could go to hell. Tonight, they returned the favor.” @KariLake

Others on the right also joined the pile-on to celebrate Lake’s loss:
Startting to sound like the Deep State Illuminati Pizzagate Lizard Alien Space Laser Overlords stole the election from Kari Lake.
And by Deep State Illuminati Pizzagate Lizard Alien Space Laser Overlords, I mean “Arizona voters” who saw through her nonsense.
