From reporting the news to being its subject, Kari Lake is running for governor. She hasn’t officially launched anything yet, only teasing on Twitter that there will be “more announcements soon.” But her website (LINK) is live and has a countdown to the 2022 primary, which is 426 days away.
Race for Trump‘s Coveted Kiss Commences in Arizona
Lake recently left her gig as an anchor at Fox 10 Phoenix after a months-long hiatus and has been rumored to run for governor ever since.
Lake has also been on a little bit of a speaking engagement tour with folks involved with QAnon and Stop the Steal, which could mean she will run from the right side of the Republican primary and hoping to earn Trump’s crucial endorsement.
(Treasurer Kimberly Yee is also angling for Trump’s endorsement). Lake’s Twitter image for the past several years is a photo with the former president and a similar photo was prominently featured on her site with some “filler” text in Latin (LINK).
The section has since been removed after plenty of politicos poked fun at the soon-to-be first-time political candidate.
Phoenix New Times has been critical of Lake’s time as news anchor over the past several years, writing about her falling for a fake theory about Red for Ed in 2018 (LINK) to being caught on a hot mic bashing the New Times’ (LINK) to joining social media platforms that many say harbor conspiracy theorists and neo Nazis (LINK).
Lake also shared an election fraud theory of someone claiming they received a ballot in the mail that was already filled out and effectively suggesting this was widespread (LINK).
She joins two other women so far in the Republican primary Yee and Karrin Taylor Robson launched campaigns on the same day two weeks ago (YS, 5/17).
Former Congressman Matt Salmon and former SOS candidate Steve Gaynor are also expected to jump in with the latter recently buying a campaign website domain (LINK).
