Kari Lake Teases Run for Arizona Senate

Arizona firebrand and former gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has teased the possibility of a run for Senate in 2024, it has emerged.

Lake, who suffered a narrow defeat in last year's gubernatorial race against Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs in highly contentious circumstances, said in an interview with The New York Times on Thursday that she is "on the warpath" as a future political candidate. 

The 53-year-old also cast doubt on Sen. Krysten Sinema's credentials as a moderate after she left the Democratic Party late last year to sit as an independent. 

“She’s the furthest thing from an independent,” Ms. Lake said. “Someone somewhere said she did a couple of courageous things, well, she should do courageous stuff here every day. If you are blessed to be elected by the people, when you show up in Washington, D.C., you should be doing courageous acts every damn day.”

According to the Times, Lake also "expressed confidence that she would easily beat any field of Republican opponents and declared that her popularity among conservative voters in the state was rivaled only by that of [Donald] Trump."

Meanwhile, various other Republicans in Arizonan have indicated they are considering Senate campaigns, including Mark Lamb, the Sheriff of Pinal County; businessman Jim Lamon, who ran for Senate in 2022; Blake Masters, the party’s Senate nominee who lost to incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly last year; and Karrin Taylor Robson, a businesswoman who lost to Lake in the governor’s primary.
