Former Fox 10 TV anchor Kari Lake is reportedly planning to launch a campaign for the US Senate in Arizona. Lake is a conservative who has been critical of President Biden and the Democratic Party. She is expected to face incumbent Democrat Mark Kelly in the 2024 election.
Lake is a well-known figure in Arizona, having worked as a news anchor at Fox 10 for over 20 years. She has also been a vocal supporter of former President Donald Trump. In 2020, Lake was a prominent spreader of misinformation about the election, falsely claiming that it had been stolen from Trump.
Lake’s entry into the Senate race is likely to energize the Republican base in Arizona. She is seen as a strong challenger to Kelly, who is a relatively moderate Democrat. However, Lake is also likely to face an uphill battle in the general election. Arizona is a swing state, and Kelly is a popular incumbent with a strong fundraising advantage.
If Lake is successful in her Senate bid, she would be the first Republican woman to represent Arizona in the US Senate. She would also be the first Trump-endorsed candidate to win a statewide election in Arizona since 2020.
Lake’s campaign is expected to focus on issues such as border security, inflation, and education. She is also likely to attack Kelly for his support of President Biden’s agenda.
The 2024 Arizona Senate race is expected to be one of the most closely watched races in the country. Lake’s entry into the race has made it even more competitive.
