(PatrioticPost.com)- Last week organizers for the Conservative Political Action Conference announced that Arizona’s losing gubernatorial candidate, Kari Lake would be the featured speaker for the Ronald Reagan Dinner at their upcoming CPAC conference next month.
Lake landing the high-profile speaking slot came as a surprise to many as the Reagan Dinner speaker is typically a prominent leader within the conservative movement.
In the statement announcing Lake as the Reagan Dinner speaker, CPAC spokeswoman Megan Powers Small praised the defeated candidate as a “rare leader who captured the hearts of conservatives with her honest, bold message” on “exposing widespread election fraud.”
So far, Lake has failed to expose election fraud.
Her attempt to challenge the results of the Arizona gubernatorial race in court failed in late December when a Maricopa judge threw out her lawsuit challenging her defeat in the Arizona gubernatorial election and rejected her claim that the printer problems at some Maricopa polling places were the result of intentional misconduct.
In his decision, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson said Lake’s team had to show that someone intentionally caused the county’s printers to malfunction and that there were enough “identifiable” votes lost to change the outcome of the election.
The judge said Lake’s team failed to meet that standard since “every single witness” that appeared in the trial “disclaimed any personal knowledge of misconduct.” He said the court “cannot accept speculation or conjecture in place of clear and convincing evidence.”
Judge Thompson concluded that there was no clear or convincing evidence of misconduct. He also reaffirmed Democrat Governor-elect Katie Hobbs’ victory.
Despite losing in the November election, Lake continues to chase the spotlight. She is considering launching a bid to challenge Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema in 2024. Lake also visited Iowa over the weekend to meet with state Republican leaders.
The CPAC conference will take place from March 1 to March 4 in National Harbor, MD, outside of Washington D.C.
