A week after the pivotal 2022 midterm elections, media outlets were finally able to project winners in the state of Arizona, which has been criticized nationally for the slow tabulation of ballots.

Fox News projected Monday night that Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs will be the next Governor of Arizona, defeating Republican candidate and former local news host Kari Lake. Hobbs oversaw the contentious election in her role as Secretary of State after failing to recuse herself.

The race may go to a recount per Arizona law. 

Following the announcement, Lake posted on Twitter, "Arizonans know BS when they see it."

The Associated Press projected that Republican Rep. David Schweikert will be victorious in the state’s 1st Congressional District, beating out Democratic challenger Jevin Hodge by a slim margin.

Schweikert and Lake were both endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

The outlet also projected that Republican Juan Ciscomani will win the House race in Arizona's 6th Congressional District, defeating Democratic state Sen. Kirsten Engel.

Republicans now control 214 seats in the US House of Representatives and 204 seats remain with the Democrats. The majority in the chamber is still up undecided with 16 races left to be called. The GOP only needs 5 more wins to secure a majority in the House.
