Fox News added these details, as of now they haven’t called the race:
It is too close to call Arizona’s Republican gubernatorial primary, with former TV news anchor Kari Lake leading real estate developer and Arizona Board of Regents member Karrin Taylor Robson by fewer than 12,000 votes.
As of Wednesday morning, Lake had 46.2% of the vote, and Taylor Robson had 44.5% in the Republican primary. The two women are seeking to succeed term-limited Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican.
Lake on Tuesday night predicted in a speech to supporters at a primary election night rally that she is “winning this 100%” and claimed that there’s “no path to victory for my opponent. We won this race.”
Taylor Robson took to Twitter to tell supporters “we feel calm and confident, and we will wait for every vote to be counted!”
The primary showdown turned into a bit of a proxy war between former President Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence.

The rising New Right can defeat the money of the establishment
The ground has shifted
