Kari Lake pulls in millions in the first quarter of her Senate campaign
Kari Lake is in a powerful position to bring home a potential win in the 2024 November senatorial election in the state of Arizona, fueled by the momentum of the America First movement and frustrated Republican voters who would like to see action on the southern border crisis.
According to a report from Politico, since announcing her campaign for the U.S. Senate in October 2023, Lake has raked in $2.1 million in fundraising, cementing her position as a powerful contender in the race for the Grand Canyon State’s Senate seat.
Lake will be squaring off in November against Congressman Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., who is jumping into a Senate race from the U.S. House of Representatives. She may also face the state’s incumbent, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, I-Ariz.
As reported by RSBN, Lake handily earned the coveted endorsement of President Donald Trump after she announced her campaign last fall. He said, “When I’m back in the White House, I need strong fighters like Kari in the Senate. She is a fighter. She’s strong and she’s good.”
On Sunday, Lake stated on X, “Arizonans want a truth-teller and a peacemaker in the White House. And a fighter in the United States Senate. I’m going to make sure they get both.”
This month, Lake garnered media attention far and wide when leaked audio of former Arizona GOP Chairman Jeff DeWit exposed his alleged attempts to bribe her to stay out of the U.S. Senate race.
His resignation marked a notable shift for the Arizona GOP, as a new Trump-backed Republican leader has now taken the helm of the state’s party.
Since DeWit left his position last week, Trump-endorsed Gina Swoboda has been elected to serve as the chair of the committee and has stated that she intends to help Donald Trump win the presidency in November 2024.
