Abe Hamadeh calls out establishment Republicans on election issues: 'controlled opposition'
"They're just so scared of the media, and they're not going to be standing up for what's right," Hamadeh said.
GOP Arizona Congressional candidate Abe Hamadeh accused establishment Republicans of being "controlled opposition" who will not discuss election integrity issues because of the media.
"It's not just the Democrats," Hamadeh said on the Tuesday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "There's some establishment Republicans who I think are controlled opposition. They're just so scared of the media, and they're not going to be standing up for what's right."
Hamadeh ran for Arizona attorney general last year and lost by a slim margin. He has filed multiple election lawsuits and his legal team has argued that there are undervotes and provisional ballots that show he was the winner of the election.
Arizona GOP Senate candidate Kari Lake, who ran for governor in 2022 and also lost, has also been talking about election integrity and has filed multiple lawsuits regarding the gubernatorial race.
"I believe we have a huge problem with our elections, as last November has highlighted here in Arizona," Hamadeh said. "We have to restore confidence with the people."
Some suggestions he offered included allowing ballot images to be public and allowing the hand counting of ballots.
