Former Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate, Kari Lake, is considering running in the upcoming Arizona Senate race. She stated at The Family Leadership Summit, a conservative Christian conference, that she believes she’s the only one capable of winning this contest.
“I’ve looked at the polling, to be honest, and I believe I’m the only one who can win that race,”
“We have an opportunity to pick up a very important seat so that when President Trump gets back into office, he can have people in D.C. ready to back him up with this incredible agenda,”
Lake hinted at making her decision by the fall of this year. Lake lost the governor’s race to Democrat Katie Hobbs, which she challenged with a lawsuit, but this was dismissed as “frivolous”, resulting in her legal team being fined over $120,000. Despite the setback, Lake has remained a steadfast supporter of former President Trump. A recent poll placed Lake significantly ahead of potential GOP opponents for the Senate nomination.
However, some Republican strategists worry that Lake’s insistence on debunked claims of voter fraud might hurt the party’s chances in the election. The incumbent, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, hasn’t yet declared her intention to run for a second term.
