Arizona State Sen. Michelle Ugenti-Rita was booed off stage at a rally featuring former President Donald Trump.
Ugenti-Rita, a Republican, was immediately met with a chorus of loud boos after taking the stage at a “Protect Our Elections” rally hosted by Turning Point Action in Phoenix on Saturday.
“Why don’t you listen to what I have to say?” Ugenti-Rita, who is running for Arizona secretary of state, asked the crowd after several failed attempts to get her speech going.
“Listen. Fine, OK… I am running to be your next Secretary of State. I’m going to win the primary. Thank you very much,” she said, before walking off after around 90 seconds on stage.

Brahm Resnik, a reporter for KPNX, tweeted that the hostile reception Ugenti-Rita received may have been because she “opposed GOP lawmaker’s wish list for election changes.”
Resnik added: “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.”
Ugenti-Rita, who chairs the Arizona Senate Government Committee, took to Twitter late Saturday to explain why she killed the recent election bill.
“I’ll put my record of fighting for election integrity up against anyone,” she tweeted. “What I won’t do is vote for ‘show’ legislation that does nothing to strengthen election integrity and introduced for self serving reasons. There’s too much at stake.”
There’s too much at stake. Our election system is under constant assault by the left, and I won’t support bills that fail to strengthen our election system.
The same holds true for the audit. I supported the audit, but I do not support the Trump audit any longer. (3of5)— Michelle Ugenti-RITA (@MichelleUgenti) July 25, 2021
She also explained why she no longer supports a months-long audit of the 2020 election in Arizona’s Maricopa County.
“I won’t support bills that fail to strengthen our election system. The same holds true for the audit. I supported the audit, but I do not support the Trump audit any longer,” she added.
“I wanted to review our election processes and see what, if anything, could be improved. Sadly, it’s now become clear that the audit has been botched.”
Ugenti-Rita’s campaign has been contacted for comment.
Trump appeared on stage later in the evening, where he repeated baseless conspiracy theories about the 2020 election and prompted boos for his former vice president, Mike Pence, after attacking him for not stopping the certification of President Joe Biden’s victory.
Trump also praised the Arizona audit and called on other states to embark on similar efforts.
The former president’s appearance came after a spat with Arizona State Sen. Paul Boyer, who is among state Republicans calling for the audit to end.
Trump released a statement on Thursday, describing Boyer as a “RINO”—a Republican In Name Only—and accusing him of “doing everything in his power to hold up the damning Forensic Audit of Maricopa County.”
Boyer responded on Twitter, which banned Trump after a mob of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
“Had Trump built the wall like he promised, perhaps he could’ve prevented the 40k #BambooBallots from being imported into Arizona,” Boyer wrote. “And if he hadn’t started an insurrection in D.C. and gotten kicked off here, I could’ve responded directly to him. So there’s that.”
How can you print such one-sided news. It’s the news that has lost its integrity. Growing up, I remember people like Walter Cronkite, who reported real news and didn’t pick sides. There needs to be College courses on the importance of telling the truth and there should be consequences of Reporters telling one-sided things.

I am appalled at all of you fighting what is abnormal! WE are in a war for good against evil…..
DO NOT FORGET HOW WE CAME HERE. We were given the earth by God for use on his planet, his permission and rules to follow, and what has happened, now, people don’t believe in God, don’t follow his rules and yes, they still have the constitutional rights? ,shouldn’t, since they have not carried out the requests of God….by all means they should not even be electable…
The only ones ( and these are the righteous believers and followers of God and his ways) should be permitted by SCOTUS to be electable. Thereby, even with fraud the criteria to elect Biden& co. Should be dismissed. (MOST DEMs , are non believers ), the corruption by this
Group is unfathomable, so much so that GOD relayed to me that the final Prophecy is into
Play, so folks, it is not climate change, but GOD change . WE ARE being purged, and only the righteous ones will be saved, UNLESS!, YOU TAKE OVER AND STOP THIS CORRUPTION, ..
Then GOD will allow , a short window , a very short amount of time for us left, to reduce corruption, and in so doing will allow the final prophecy to go back to its final time in near
Future of @900 to 1000 yrs…..but if you fight internally and don’t accomplish this , your souls will not find the eternal rest they need. AMEN!
I think this election was as corrupt as it gets from National to state elections. Sad outcome for our democracy.
