Kari Lake said she believes she is the only candidate who could win next year’s Arizona Senate race during remarks at the Family Leadership Summit, a Christian conference held in Iowa,
According to a report from The Hill, Lake will decide if she will run for Arizona Independent Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s seat in the fall.
“I’ve looked at the polling, to be honest, and I believe I’m the only one who can win that race,” Lake said.
“We have an opportunity to pick up a very important seat so that when President Trump gets back into office, he can have people in D.C. ready to back him up with this incredible agenda.”
Kari Lake would already have a head start if she decides to jump in Senate race because polls show her ahead of all other possible candidates in a hypothetical 2024 GOP Senate primary by 28 points, Just The News reported.
According to a recent poll conducted by JL Partners earlier this year, 38% of registered Arizona Republicans and undeclared voters would vote for Kari Lake.
Karrin Taylor Robson, who lost the GOP gubernatorial primary to Lake in 2022, came second place with 10% support.
“Following Robson, Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb has 8%, 2022 Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters has 7%, and 2022 Arizona Attorney General candidate Abraham Hamadeh has 4%,” the outlet reported.
“No Arizona Republicans have entered the 2024 Senate primary, but Lake, Masters, and Hamadeh were all endorsed by former President Donald Trump last year in their respective primaries.”
In June, Lake hinted she is eying a U.S. Senate run next year.
In a tweet in June, Lake wrote, “Are you ready for the next chapter?” — in a post that included a photo of her silhouetted on a stage with a state flag as her backdrop.
“While Lake’s name has been floated as a vice presidential contender, there are also rumors she could be eyeing a Senate run and is leaning in on raising her national profile,” the Washington Examiner reported on Wednesday. “Much of her popularity comes from her cozy relationship with [former President Donald] Trump, whom she has wholeheartedly supported and unabashedly defended.”
