(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) In an exclusive statement to the Wall Street Journal, a former Republican gubernatorial Arizona candidate Kari Lake announced that she is running for the U.S. Senate, thus challenging a left-wing Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, I-Ariz., a former Democrat.
Lake said that she will officially launch her campaign at a rally she will hold on Oct. 10, 2023.
Despite the rumors that Donald Trump would choose her as a vice president, Lake previously hinted at a run.
“We need to get a senator in there who is going to fight back and put America first,” she said.
The Journal reported that Lake is expected to get the full backing of Trump for her Senate run.
Even though Sinema hasn’t yet officially announced her re-election bid, the news source reported that her team has been laying the groundwork for a third-party bid.
Aside from Lake, there is also another person who will challenge Sinema — Ruben Gallego who runs as a Democrat.
Lake became well-known all around the country last year when she launched the gubernatorial campaign in her state. She closely aligned herself with Trump and spent a big part of her campaign pushing back against the mass media smears and her critics’ attacks.
However, despite her popularity both in the entire country and in the state of Arizona, Lake wasn’t able to become the governor due to the Democrats cheating in the election and appointing a far-left Katie Hobbs who ran her campaign as a Democrat while running away from the reporters.
To this day, Lake fights in courts to raise concerns about election integrity, for which she is constantly smeared by the leftists since they don’t want her to tell people about what happened in 2022.
