Exclusive: Arizona Republican Kari Lake Floats Possible U.S. Senate Run

Nick Gilbertson 1 Jul 2023

Arizona Republican Kari Lake teased a possible run for U.S. Senate while appearing on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Fourth of July Special, where she also spoke about her new book Unafraid: Just Getting Started.

Breitbart News Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle asked Lake, last year’s Republican gubernatorial nominee in Arizona, if she was considering another bid for office in the Grand Canyon State. Lake, who had the backing of the MAGA coalition and is challenging her razor-thin election loss, said she is thinking of another run, though she emphasized she has not given up her legal battle.

“Politics is gross. It’s a slimy business, but I think we need real people to be in it. And so I am contemplating running for office again,” Lake said. “I want everyone out there to know we have filed a notice of appeal on our case. We’re not giving up on securing our elections and reforming our elections, and we’re going to work through the court system.”

“I may run for Senate, I’m considering that,” she added. “It’s something I may have to do because we can’t have people who don’t care about Arizonans representing us in Washington, DC. Got a lot of options on the table. I’m taking a look at all of them, and I’ll be making some decisions here in the coming months.”

Notably, Republican Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb has announced a bid for the U.S. Senate and would be a primary opponent of Lake if she runs. Moreover, Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) has launched a campaign for the Democrat nomination as Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) defected from the Democrat Party last year to become an independent. Sinema is reportedly plotting a bid as well, setting up the prospects for a three-way showdown.

She needs to hang in there, become governor of Arizona, and clean that mess up. Once she gets that done, she will be a shoo in for anything she wants later.

Nah.  She's better than that.  Lake should not play second fiddle to Trump who is more like the kid banjo player in Deliverance.

 :bingo:

This would be her giving up on/giving in to the election fraud of 2022.

She needs to help galvanize the party right.

Whether she does that working in the state or in the senate, we need her to be a leader.

I really don't like her tieing herself to Trump.

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.

I agree. Washington will just put her in a position to be treated like MTG, from inside the GOP, to boot.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

I have not been able to see what she is doing.

Hopefully she continues to connect.

She does need to just shut up about Trump.  He's not getting my support this time.

So I pulled off my message agreeing with you.

As of late, she's in desperation mode. 

Even if she beats Mark Lamb, Gallego is going to fry her for breakfast. 

If you don't know who Gallego is, run....and be very afraid

If those 15% voted for her, she slams Gallego to the ground.  Shuts his pie-hole for good and goes off to Washington D.C.

But read on....one of her biggest issues....she can't let go of 2020.  That's her right. 

But she is going to occupy the R side of the ballot and hand the election to that jackass.  If she loses this, I don't ever want to hear her name again. 

When the Governor race comes up in 2026, I want nothing to do with her and I will push the people I know to take the same stance.

Lake is now trailing Gallego by 5 points. 

Most places are calling this a toss-up tilt blue.

Just perfect.

I am getting bombed with Lake requests for money. 

She's crowing about the ad buy that her left-wing certified whack-job opponent is buying.

I want to write back and say....I ain't sending you a dime.  You brought this on yourself and I won't be paying for your stupidity.

Thank you so much for handing this seat over to a real loser.

CBS now has Gallego by 13.  I don't know if these grandpas think she's hot ... whatever their reasoning, they are about to make a colossal screw-up in the primary.

She settled down after her primary victory in 2022. 

But she never let go of Trump and the whole stolen election narrative.  And she's since gone bats**t crazy with it.

She pulls that garbage with DeWitt......

And Viola !!!!  Here you go. 

Her only supporters are the hardcore leftovers from 2022.

Was this a seat that could have gone GOP with anyone but Lake?
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

Not just anyone.

Martha McSally

Blake Masters

Would not win.

If the GOP could produce a descent candidate....they would win.

I can't figure out why we can find a descent candidate.
