Kari Lake, a 2020 election denier who was backed by former President Donald Trump, has won the Republican primary for governor in Arizona, beating Karrin Taylor Robson, a candidate endorsed by former Vice President Mike Pence, NBC News projects.

Lake's victory, coupled with primary wins in the state for two other election deniers, Mark Finchem, the Republican nominee for secretary of state, and Abraham Hamadeh, the Republican nominee for state attorney general, means Arizona could have election deniers in place in the top positions overseeing elections and certifying and defending results in the important swing state.

Lake had 46.8 percent of the vote on Thursday night, to Taylor Robson's 44 percent, with 90 percent of the expected vote counted.

In a statement Thursday night, Lake said the election results “took longer than they should have,” while adding that Arizonans who had been “forgotten by the establishment just delivered a political earthquake” in naming her the Republican nominee.
