Kari Lake is a passionate former television anchor. She came within a hair’s breadth of winning the Arizona governor’s election last year.
Recently, Lake disclosed in an interview that she is thinking about running as a Republican for the U.S. Senate in Arizona in 2024.
Kari Won’t Quit
She also has events planned this month in Iowa, which is where her party’s first presidential primary will be held. This is usually a sign that a person wants to be president.
Lake also keeps arguing that she shouldn’t have lost the race for governor of Arizona in November, even though her claims of wrongdoing were thrown out of court.
She has kept trying to raise money to help pay the fees for her legal problems. Lake has also given a number of sponsored talks, but she won’t say for whom.
After making a midlife career change, Lake has been arguing in recent weeks, which shows that she wants to grow her new political career.
When a brave judge allows our signature verification evidence to be presented before the court the full extent of Maricopa County's manipulation of our elections will be revealed.
You will be sickened to see what passes for an acceptable signature in that department.

Lake entered politics last year after working for years as a local tv reporter and presenter. She had already won a rough primary election with a strong mix of campaign lies and racial complaints.
She came within 17,000 votes of winning Arizona’s most powerful position as a first-time candidate, thanks to her skills as a smooth and ruthless speaker. This earned her praise from former President Donald J. Trump, whose mannerisms she often imitates.
In an appearance on Thursday evening, Lake declared, “Here’s your news story: Kari Lake is on the verge of war.” Though it wasn’t apparent where that road would end up.
Lake showcased the initial stages in a prospective Senate contest while drinking a pint of Guinness at a corner table at a Washington hotel restaurant.
She called Senator Kyrsten Sinema, who abandoned the Democratic Party in December to become an Independent, and Representative Ruben Gallego, a Democrat who is attempting to run for Sinema’s seat, “radical leftists.”

Lake tried to make people doubt Sinema’s reputation as a moderate by showing how often the Arizona representative votes with President Biden. An NBC poll from the year before showed that American voters were split on whether Biden was a moderate or a liberal.
Lake declared that she is the polar opposite of an Independent. She should act bravely here each day, according to someone who indicated she had done a few bold things.
When you arrive in Washington, D.C., you should really be performing daring deeds every single day if you are fortunate enough to be chosen by the people.
Kari on Warpath
Sinema’s spokesperson declined to respond.
In addition, Lake called Gallego, a progressive Democrat from Phoenix, a socialist and cited complaints made by Ne’Lexia Galloway.
Galloway is a former staff member who left her position with him last year and criticized him for not doing more to “speak up about the injustices” to people of color in his district.
Gallego’s spokesperson declined to respond.
