FACT CHECK: Blake Masters Thinks Trump Won the 2020 Election and Sows Doubt in 2020 Election
PHOENIX — No matter how hard Blake Masters tries to hide it, nothing can erase the fact that he’s spent the last year spreading Trump’s baseless lies about the 2020 election, going as far as to release a campaign video that said “I think Trump won in 2020.”

Let’s set the record straight: Despite scrubbing his position from his campaign website last month, Blake Masters has repeatedly said the 2020 election was stolen, sowed doubt in our elections, and even preemptively said — without any evidence — that there will be fraud in this year’s election.

Why it matters: Even after the partisan “audit” produced no evidence of widespread voter fraud, Arizona Republicans have relentlessly pushed their baseless election conspiracy theories in an effort to capture Trump’s support and win their GOP primaries — all while threatening our safe and secure election system.

See for yourself: 


[AUDIO] MASTERS: “I’m the one candidate running in our race that has said I don’t think this was a free and fair election. I think they stole it six ways from Sunday,” (Steve Bannon’s War Room, 5/11/22).

  • Masters, trying to mobilize primary voters ahead of August 2, escalated his efforts to sow doubt about US elections late last month, posing questions about whether the cheating he claimed happened in 2020 will happen in 2022.
