Kari Lake Did Not Concede on Twitter, Despite Tweet from 'Verified' Parody Impersonation Account
On Nov. 11, 2022, a user behind a Twitter account with the handle @KariLakeAZ (or @KarilakeAZ with a capital "i") displayed a "verified" checkmark and the picture and name of Arizona Republican Kari Lake. The user impersonated Lake and tweeted that she had conceded to Democrat Katie Hobbs in the state's gubernatorial race.
The tweet read, "It is with heavy heart that I must concede to my opponent, @katiehobbs. We didn't get the outcome we wanted but I promise we'll be back even stronger in next year's gubernatorial election."
