Kari Lake Poised to Formally Enter U.S. Senate Race Tuesday Night

Kari Lake has teased her entry to the U.S. Senate race for Arizona in 2024, and her website was updated Tuesday morning to reflect her new campaign even as she continues to falsely claim she was cheated out of a win in the 2022 governor’s race and tries to overturn that election. 

The website update was made more than six hours before a “big announcement” she’s been touting at a Tuesday evening event in Scottsdale. Speculation around Lake’s run has been rampant for months, and the Wall Street Journal reported last month that she would formally enter the race on Oct. 10. the change to her official website doubly confirms Lake’s intentions. 

Lake last week filed paperwork to create a Senate campaign committee. 

Lake was a local news acchor for Fox 10 in Phoenix for more than 20 years before she quit, claiming the media was pushing a biased and immoral agenda.

The former news anchor has yet to concede the 2022 race, which she lost by more than 17,000 votes. Since then she has tried repeatedly to overturn that election loss, but has lost several court cases challenging the results. Her appeal to the results of her second trial is currently pending.

Lake has continued to call herself the “lawful governor of Arizona, as has a social media account controlled by her campaign.

In recent months, Lake has acted as a campaign surrogate for former President Donald Trump, traveling across the country campaigning for him and defending him on conservative podcasts and newscasts. 

If she wins the primary, Lake will face off against Democrat Ruben Gallego. Independent incumbent Kyrsten Sinema, who announced she was leaving the Democratic Party last year, hasn’t yet said if she’ll seek re-election, though a leaked memo indicates she is planning to run. 

Lake will face off against Pinal Country Sheriff Mark Lamb in the primary. Lamb also has a history of aligning himself with election conspiracy theorists and the far right fringe.
