The self-described ‘only conservative’ in the race for Arizona Governor Kari Lake has now been outed for a series of past donations to Democrat politicians.
As The Washington Free Beacon reports:
The self-proclaimed “only conservative” in the race for Arizona governor has had her campaign launch derailed by reports of her political donations to Democrats John Kerry and Barack Obama.
Former news anchor Kari Lake announced her candidacy in June, positioning herself as the “only conservative, America First Trump Republican in the race.” But instead of spending the opening weeks of the campaign touting her conservative bona fides, Lake has sparred with local media over her donations to liberal politicians.
Lake on June 15 accused one local reporter of conducting a “hit piece interview” when he attempted to confirm the contributions, saying the line of questioning was “unethical” and “slanted.”
While Lake’s campaign did not return a request for comment, she has explained her contributions to Democrats in other local interviews by saying she “was really excited about the first black president” and “thought the Republican Party had lost its way with the endless wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.”
Are past donations to Democrats forgivable for modern GOP candidates? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
