Former Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake is now running for the state’s open U.S. Senate seat, something it appears the powers that be in the GOP wanted to keep her from doing. Regardless of their disapproval, Kari Lake has continued scoring victories and sweeping in support as her campaign gets going headed into the primary season and then the election, such as support from a sitting U.S. Senator and a massive campaign war chest.
Lake has already received a wide degree of support from the MAGA right. For example, she snagged an endorsement from Trump ally and former 2024 GOP hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy. He said, “The slogan of my campaign was truth. Well, that means I’m going to support people who are willing to speak hard truths that other Republicans aren’t. Kari Lake is one of those fearless Republicans. And that’s I’m going to endorse her for her candidacy for US Senate. And I do expect her to be the next US senator from the state of Arizona.”
Continuing, he went on to explain her many positive qualities before ending with a pledge to support her with all his might. He said, “I’m gonna do everything in my power to make sure she’s successfully elected. And this is part of a broader America First movement that’s going to live not just for the next four years, and it’s going to succeed in the next four years, but for the next 250 years, and then some after that, that’s what this is about and carry Good luck. We’re gonna make sure you’re successful.”
Now, Vivek and others have been joined by Senator Bill Hagerty of Tennessee. He, in a statement on the race, threw his weight behind Lake and argued that she would do a fantastic job of representing Arizonians in the Senate.
Beginning, Sen. Hagerty argued that Lake is both principled and a fighter, and thus will make a great colleague of his in the Senate. He said, “I’m honored to endorse my friend Kari Lake to be Arizona’s next U.S. Senator. Kari is a strong, principled conservative, who knows and loves the people of Arizona and will make them proud as their elected representative.”
Continuing, he dove into explaining how hard she is willing to fight for what she believes in, saying, “Kari is fearless, she doesn’t back down, and she will fight tirelessly to secure our border and make our country safe and prosperous. The stakes could not be higher and it is now more important than ever that we retake the Republican majority and get our country back on the right track for all working American families and citizens.”
Responding to Sen. Hagerty’s powerful endorsement of her senate campaign, Lake said, “I am thrilled to have the endorsement of a conservative force in the Senate, my friend Bill Hagerty. He has been a strong voice for securing our border and advocating for America First policies. I look forward to working with him to put America back on track.”
Further, Lake’s campaign announced on Monday, January 29th, that she had managed to raise millions of dollars in the first quarter of her campaign. According to the campaign, she has managed to rake in $2.1 million for her campaign war chest since she announced her run on October 10, 2023.
