Kari Lake sat down for an interview with Turing Point USA’s Charlie Kirk on his show, “Real American’s Voice,” where she made the groundbreaking statement that she’s entertaining the idea of running for the U.S. Senate.
Lake had developed a large following around the country as a Trump loyalist and ally, and her following has hopes of seeing Lake take office in the future despite losing to then-candidate and eventual Governor Katie Hobbs by only 17,000 votes in Arizona’s Gubernatorial race in 2022.
During the interview, Kirk asked Lake if she was “entertaining” a Senate run, to which Lake replied, saying:
“Yes I am entertaining it,”
“I mean my number one priority is our court case, and I have full confidence in our court case and I hope we will get a judge to do the right thing,” Lake continued. “But I’m also looking at what happens if we don’t get a decent ruling in that, and they want me to go away, they want our movement to go away. I represent we the people, and if they want us gone so badly that they’re willing to steal an election then I’m not going to let them have that, I won’t go away.”
“I’ve seen some internal polling that shows I’m the only Republican who can beat these other two,” she said. “I find both of them incredibly dangerous to the people of Arizona, Kyrsten Sinema’s voting record being 93 percent of the time voting for Joe Biden’s agenda, I find Ruben Gallego being a self-admitted socialist really frightening for Arizona and if I’m the only Republican who can beat them, I would be willing to jump in.”
Lake has developed a dedicated following in Arizona, despite losing to Katie Hobbs in the 2022 Gubernatorial election and appearing to have come up short in her legal efforts to have the results overturned, Lake has remained a prominent person in GOP talks for future offices. Lake is also being widely speculated as a potential 2024 Vice Presidental candidate to Donald Trump, however, Trump has yet to certify that he’s sharing the same thoughts as those speculating.
