Former Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake will reportedly mount US Senate bid

Former Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake will mount a U.S. Senate bid as early as October, Politico reported, citing three individuals aware of the prospective politician's plans. ABC News , citing three sources, reported that Lake is set to kick off a Senate run in October. Lake senior adviser Caroline Wren informed The Hill that Lake is "likely to make a final decision in October" regarding the possibility of a Senate run.

"Ruben Gallego and Kyrsten Sinema are rubber stamps for Joe Biden and his radical agenda. It's time Arizona has a true conservative fighter in the U.S. Senate. The people of Arizona want Kari Lake to stay in this fight and are calling on her to run and she's very likely to answer that call," Wren said, according to The Hill.

Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego of Arizona has already announced a Senate bid. Incumbent Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who had been a Democrat but announced last year that she registered as an independent, has not announced whether she will seek another term in office, according to ABC News and Politico.

Lake, a Republican, lost the 2022 governor's race to then-Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat. But Lake claimed that the election had been stolen and that she really won.

Lake has been an outspoken supporter of former President Donald Trump.

"I applaud President Trump for skipping the 2nd Republican debate in favor of delivering his America First message directly to working-class voters. These kid's table debates are a distraction. But the MAGA message still needs to be heard. I am honored to be attending the debate as a surrogate for President Trump," Lake tweeted .

Trump will reportedly skip the second GOP presidential primary debate that is scheduled to take place next week in California and deliver a speech in Detroit, Michigan, instead.
