Donald Trump and Kari Lake Endorse Election Integrity Leader Gina Swoboda for AZGOP Chair, Election Tomorrow

Donald Trump and Kari Lake announced their endorsement Friday of the Voter Reference Foundation’s Gina Swoboda for Arizona Republican Party (AZGOP) chair. Jeff DeWit was forced to resign this past week after a recording was released of him attempting to convince Lake to stay out of politics for two years by offering her a well-paying job instead. The election will be held on Saturday at the AZGOP’s annual mandatory meeting for state committeemen.

Lake announced the endorsements on X Friday evening. “I am proud to join President Trump in endorsing Gina Swoboda to become Arizona GOP’s next Chair at tomorrow’s vote,” she said. “Gina has never backed away from working for honest elections, and she is respected in the Republican Party. I am confident that Gina will help deliver Arizona for President Trump and flip control of the U.S. Senate.”

Team Trump, an official account on X for Trump, posted, “President Trump just spoke to Gina Swoboda and offered his full support and endorsement of her for next Arizona GOP Chair. Gina is a strong fighter for election integrity and will be relentless in her work to deliver Arizona for President Trump and Kari Lake in 2024.”

The endorsements were soon followed by others: Representative Andy Biggs (R-AZ-05), Representative Eli Crane (R-AZ-02), State Senate President Warren Petersen (R-Mesa), State Senator Wendy Rogers (R-Flagstaff), State Senator Jake Hoffman (R-Queen Creek), State Senator Justine Wadsack (R-Tucson), State Representative Joseph Chaplik (R-Scottsdale), State Representative Austin Smith (R-Surprise), former AZGOP chair Kelli Ward, former Maricopa County GOP Chair and Turning Point COO Tyler Bowyer, Republican attorney Harmeet Dhillon, and the Arizona Freedom Caucus. More endorsements are expected throughout the evening.
