Arizona GOP asks if followers willing to give their lives to ‘stop the steal’

The Arizona Republican Party late Monday asked supporters if they were willing to give their lives in the fight over the results of the presidential election.

The party retweeted right-wing activist Ali Alexander’s promise that he is “willing to give my life for this fight.”

Officials with President Trump‘s campaign and the national Republican Party did not immediately return messages seeking comment on the tweet, including questions as to whether it crossed a line into advocating political violence. Arizona was the site of a deadly mass shooting in 2011 when a man attacked then-Democratic Rep. Gabby Giffords outside of a grocery store, killing six in the process.

Attorneys for the president have been active in Arizona and other battleground states won by President-elect Joe Biden in a campaign to overturn state election results over baseless accusations of widespread election and voter fraud, efforts that have yet to bear fruit.
