Arizona Sen. Michelle Ugenti-Rita, who is now running for Arizona Secretary of State and recently killed election integrity legislation to help prevent accusations of fraud in future races, was booed off the stage during her speech at the Turning Point USA Chapter Leadership Summit held today in Phoenix, Arizona.
After several failed attempts to get her speech underway, Ugenti-Rita left the stage shouting, “I will win my primary!”
Local reporter Brahm Resnik said the crowd was ready for her. “FYI Trump base crowd was primed to boo @MichelleUgenti. Wasn’t anything she said. Boos rained all over room from start till she bailed out,” he tweeted.
Ugenti-Rita, announced that she would join the Democrats in voting against SB1241, which was set for its third reading in the Senate at the time, contained over 34 various election integrity measures, including: requiring paper ballot copies for every vote cast on a voting machine, securing those machines and hard drives outside of voting hours, sending ballots with mismatched signatures to the Attorney General for potential investigation, requiring ballot observers to be able to see the voting machines, increasing chain of custody requirements, and forcing anyone registering in Arizona who moved from another state to deregister from their previous state.
