Republican Kari Lake is set to enter Arizona’s U.S. Senate race on Tuesday in Scottsdale. Lake recently filed paperwork for a run for the seat currently held by Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who has not confirmed whether she will run for another six-year term. Lake previously confronted Democrat Rep. Ruben Gallego over immigration, border security and fentanyl, and she is also expected to compete against Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb.
Republican Kari Lake Joins Arizona U.S. Senate Race
The event at Jetset Magazine provides Lake an opportunity to rekindle the support she received during her unsuccessful 2022 gubernatorial bid, which thrust her into the national conservative spotlight.
Last week, Lake filed for a run for the seat currently occupied by Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, I-Ariz. Sinema has not announced if she will seek re-election, but her fundraising and campaign activities hint at it.
Lake has already started critiquing Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., the only notable Democrat running for Sinema’s seat. After a cross-country flight from Washington, D.C., Lake confronted Gallego over immigration, border security, and fentanyl in a recorded encounter at Phoenix International Sky Harbor Airport, asserting her rejection of soft political discourse.
For now, Lake joins a race with Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb. Despite Lake’s entry, Lamb showed no signs of withdrawing. While Lake is the front-runner, national Republicans have shown some reservations about her candidacy.
