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."

"He is. Are you?" the state GOP added.
