Kari Lake launches bid for U.S. Senate: 'I am not going to retreat'

Former GOP Arizona gubernatorial candidate, Kari Lake, made an announcement on Tuesday about her bid for the U.S. Senate. With a serious tone, she expressed her concerns at a campaign event held in Scottsdale. Lake pointed out that the current state of affairs is dire and compared President Joe Biden's actions to pouring gasoline on a raging fire.

She emphasized the alarming situation at the Arizona border, describing it as an "absolute invasion" within the country. Additionally, she criticized the Biden administration's policies by attributing blame for the recent Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel. Lake contended that it is imperative to ensure that a similar unfortunate scenario does not occur within the United States.

She firmly declared her determination to take a stand and refused to back down, vowing to fight alongside her supporters. In a bold move, Lake officially announced her candidacy for the United States Senate, as she expressed her resolve to not waver from her position.

Despite her loss in the 2022 race for governor, Lake has gained national recognition as a prominent Republican figure, primarily due to her advocacy for election integrity. She had previously hinted at the possibility of pursuing a Senate run.

Following her defeat against Arizona Democratic Governor Katie Hobbs, Lake went on to contest the election results in court. Her argument centered around the claim that numerous Republican voters were denied their right to vote due to errors in voting machines at over 60% of the voting centers in Maricopa County.

As the race for the Arizona Senate unfolds, it is expected to be a three-way contest involving Democrat-turned-Independent Kyrsten Sinema, the GOP nominee, and current Arizona Democratic Representative Ruben Gallego, who announced his bid earlier this year.
