    Kari Lake Teases ‘Next Chapter’ As Rumors Spread She Is Eying U.S. Senate Bid

    Published on

    In a series of social media posts and interviews, former Phoenix newscaster and 2022 Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake is previewing what’s in store for her in the near future as speculation grows that she is eyeing a U.S. Senate run in 2020.

    Lake tweeted on Wednesday, “Are you ready for the next chapter?” alongside a photo of her silhouetted against a state flag while performing on stage.

    “While Lake’s name has been floated as a vice presidential contender, there are also rumors she could be eyeing a Senate run and is leaning in on raising her national profile,” the Washington Examiner reported on Wednesday. “Much of her popularity comes from her cozy relationship with [former President Donald] Trump, whom she has wholeheartedly supported and unabashedly defended.”

    And while Lake’s name has been bandied about as a potential running mate for Trump in 2024, she recently downplayed that possibility on Kimberly Guilfoyle’s Rumble show, explaining that she’s still focused on challenging the outcome of the gubernatorial election, which she narrowly lost to Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs. Lake claims that numerous election day errors and problems at dozens of polling locations disenfranchised her voters and cost her the election.

    “Once it runs through the courts, then I’ll make my next move, and hopefully, my next move is moving into the governor’s office,” she told Guilfoyle, a former Fox News personality. “But if for some reason it’s so far gone, then I certainly will look at the Senate race.”

    Until now, courts have disagreed.

    Should Lake elect to run for the Senate, she appears to have an advantage. As reported by Just the News last month, one survey placed Lake 28 points ahead of all other potential candidates in a hypothetical 2024 Republican Senate primary.

    A recent poll conducted by JL Partners from April 10-12 revealed that 38% of registered Arizona Republicans and undecided voters would vote for Kari Lake, despite her failure to announce her intention to run for Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s (D-Arizona) seat. Karrin Taylor Robson, who lost last year’s GOP gubernatorial primary to Lake, placed second with 10% of the vote.

    “Following Robson, Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb has 8%, 2022 Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters has 7% and 2022 Arizona Attorney General candidate Abraham Hamadeh has 4%,” the outlet reported. “No Arizona Republicans have entered the 2024 Senate primary, but Lake, Masters and Hamadeh were all endorsed by former President Donald Trump last year in their respective primaries.”

    In a hypothetical contest for the Republican presidential nomination next year, Trump is preferred by 23 percentage points over Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), with 47% supporting Trump and 24% supporting DeSantis, and 11% of voters undecided.

    Former Vice President Mike Pence, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R-VA), former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), former Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramayana all received single-digit support among the remaining declared and potential candidates.

    In addition, 2% of electors supported an alternative option. Since then, Pompeo and Youngkin have confirmed that they will not pursue the Republican nomination.

    Maricopa County investigators released a report on the irregularities observed during the midterm elections of 2022 at the end of last month, after the county encountered severe ballot printing issues that garnered criticism from Republicans.

    Maricopa, the most populous county in Arizona, has recently been scrutinized for alleged election irregularities and voter fraud in recent elections, particularly the 2020 presidential election and the 2022 gubernatorial election. Just the News reported that the county’s ballot printers and tabulators encountered significant issues on Election Day, drawing criticism from Republicans.

    Former Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Ruth McGregor led the team of investigators who authored the report. According to their analysis, changes in the ballot length combined with the paperweight put a strain on some of the older printers’ abilities, the outlet said. CONTINUE READING…
