Arizona GOP chair resigns amid leaked Kari Lake audio controversy

Arizona Republican Party Chairman Jeff DeWit has resigned, citing pressure from GOP Senate candidate Kari Lake. This move comes after an audio recording surfaced where DeWit discussed financial incentives for Lake to avoid the 2024 Senate race. Lake’s advisers deny any threats, calling DeWit’s claims false.

DeWit, a former Trump campaign COO and NASA CFO, claims he was set up by Lake to control the state party. He decided to resign following alleged threats of a more damaging recording being released.

Lake’s team insists that DeWit attempted to bribe her, emphasizing her ethical refusal of financial offers. DeWit, in turn, accuses Lake of exploiting private conversations, raising questions about her effectiveness in the Senate.

This incident adds to the ongoing turmoil within the Arizona GOP, divided between establishment Republicans and Trump-aligned factions. DeWit, initially seen as a bridge between these factions, became chairman in 2023. The situation raises concerns about privacy and trust, particularly given Arizona’s crucial role in the upcoming elections.

Kari Lake is a GOP candidate for the Senate seat currently held by independent Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, with Arizona playing a pivotal role in the 2024 elections.
