Democrats Benefit as Rep. Stefanik Endorses Kari Lake



Former news reader and Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, Kari Lake, has received an endorsement from the No. 3-ranking member of GOP leadership in the House of Representatives, New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik. Stefanik has previously endorsed controversial figures such as a candidate who praised Adolf Hitler and another who embraced many MAGA conspiracies. The article suggests that this endorsement, and Lake’s acceptance of it, could be beneficial for Democrats.

Arizona Republican Kari Lake Receives Endorsement from Rep. Elise Stefanik

Former news anchor and Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kari Lake is celebrating after securing the endorsement of New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik, a high-ranking GOP House of Representatives member.

This news may also be welcomed by Democrats given Stefanik’s shift from a conventional Republican to a staunch Trump supporter.

Stefanik described Lake as a “proven conservative fighter” who will strengthen border security, lower living costs, safeguard American values, and protect the nation.

Stefanik’s Endorsement History

Stefanik’s endorsement is akin to a circus attraction, reminiscent of when she endorsed Republican Rep. George Santos, proclaiming him the “next generation of Republican leadership”. Santos may indeed be the next generation of Republican leadership to serve prison time, given his current indictment for 23 federal crimes.

Lake continues to discuss a stolen election despite Santos’ decision not to run for reelection following an investigation by the House Ethics Committee that revealed potential additional crimes.

Kari Lake Joins Stefanik’s Endorsement Roster

Despite the controversies, Lake has expressed gratitude for Stefanik’s endorsement, describing her as a proven conservative warrior and leader. Meanwhile, media outlets in Stefanik’s home state of New York have highlighted some of her questionable endorsements.

Stefanik’s endorsements have included a candidate who praised Adolf Hitler, a candidate who subscribed to many MAGA conspiracies, and a candidate who railed against the “groomer Dems.”

With Santos not seeking reelection, Lake is eager to take his place in Stefanik’s political endorsement line-up.
