‘I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you’: Fox reporter chuckles covering Arizona election call

The Arizona gubernatorial race is over if you follow the media who are declaring Katie Hobbs the winner. This isn’t sitting well with her Republican opposition Kari Lake or Fox News reporter Kevin Corke.

Corke joined “Fox and Friends” Tuesday morning to report on the race, and his commentary noted the suspicion that we haven’t seen the last of this race or the controversy it has generated.

“The truth is some really want that gubernatorial race in Arizona to be over and done with,” Corke began. “We can all move on. But if the final tally ends up within a half a percentage point, we could actually see a recount, and that could happen.”

“For the moment all we do know is that Katie Hobbs, who wouldn’t debate and some even argue barely campaigned, still managed to have the ground game to draw over a million votes. And just enough apparently to beat Kari Lake,” he continued, mocking the apparently victorious Democrat.

Corke then read Hobbs’ tweet acknowledging her win, saying “Democracy is worth the wait. Thank you, Arizona. I’m so honored and so proud to be your next Governor.”

“But if you believe that, I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you,” he chuckled. “That is, of course, if you think Kari Lake agrees, which apparently she doesn’t.”

Lake had also taken to Twitter Monday night to say “Arizonans know BS when they see it,” indicating that she wasn’t fully sold on the results being in Hobbs’ favor.
