Arizona GOP Chairman Jeff DeWit resigned Wednesday following the posting of a leaked audio tape in which he seemed to offer 2024 GOP Senate candidate Kari Lake money to exit the race. 

"This morning, I was determined to fight for my position," DeWit said in a statement, one day after the audio was released. "However, a few hours ago, I received an ultimatum from Lake's team: resign today or face the release of a new, more damaging recording."

The recording was made in March 2023. The state GOP has been divided over Lake continuing to publicly say – and her continuously filing lawsuits – contending she lost the 2022 governor's race as a result of election irregularities. 

DeWit also said Wednesday: "I am truly unsure of its contents, but considering our numerous past open conversations as friends, I have decided not to take the risk. I am resigning as Lake requested, in the hope that she will honor her commitment to cease her attacks, allowing me to return to the business sector—a field I find much more logical and prefer over politics."
