Once again a rumor is being floated, this time by Politico that Kari Lake is contemplating a run for the US Senate in Arizona, although they say a final decision won’t be made until October. That makes sense because Lake should know by then if she will win her appeal from the 2022 election.
If she gets the go ahead to inspect the ballot signatures for the write-in votes, she probably will not run for the Senate, but if she is stymied again, she could make a run for the Senate. She would be facing the incumbent Kyrsten Sinema and another Democrat, Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego of Arizona. That would give her a huge advantage that could take manufacturing a win for the Democrats off the table.
Lake senior adviser Caroline Wren informed The Hill:
“Ruben Gallego and Kyrsten Sinema are rubber stamps for Joe Biden and his radical agenda. It’s time Arizona has a true conservative fighter in the U.S. Senate. The people of Arizona want Kari Lake to stay in this fight and are calling on her to run and she’s very likely to answer that call.”
Lake allegedly lost the election for governor to the corrupt Katie Hobbs. She allegedly lost by about 17,000 votes, but she could easily overcome that if there are an unusually large number of counterfeit ballots. And from what we have seen from the Maricopa County supervisors fighting tooth and nail to prevent her from seeing the ballots, I assume there are a large number of illegal ballots.
Lake is a yuge supporter of President Trump and she said:
“I applaud President Trump for skipping the 2nd Republican debate in favor of delivering his America First message directly to working-class voters. These kid’s table debates are a distraction. But the MAGA message still needs to be heard. I am honored to be attending the debate as a surrogate for President Trump.”

Former Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake will mount a U.S. Senate bid as early as October, Politico reported, citing three individuals aware of the prospective politician’s plans. ABC News, citing three sources, reported that Lake is set to kick off a Senate run in October. Lake senior adviser Caroline Wren informed The Hill that Lake is “likely to make a final decision in October” regarding the possibility of a Senate run.
Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego of Arizona has already announced a Senate bid. Incumbent Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who had been a Democrat but announced last year that she registered as an independent, has not announced whether she will seek another term in office, according to ABC News and Politico.
Trump will reportedly skip the second GOP presidential primary debate that is scheduled to take place next week in California and deliver a speech in Detroit, Michigan, instead.
