Arizona Republican Kari Lake launches 2024 Senate campaign.

It’s onto the Senate race for Lake, and she will run against Democrat Rep. Ruben Gallego and Republican Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb.

“I am not going to retreat. I’m gonna stand on top of this hill with every single one of you, and I know you’re by my side as I formally announce my candidacy for the United States Senate,” Lake told a crowd of supporters.

Former President Donald Trump formally endorsed Kari Lake, a longtime political ally, in the Arizona Senate race in October.

“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. She’s got a great heart, by the way,” Trump said in a video shared on his Truth Social platform. “I will need a majority in the House and in the Senate. We have to have a big, strong majority to help me push our America First agenda through and to push it through really fast – that starts right here tonight by helping Kari Lake win in Arizona, and she will win too.”

A couple of weeks ago, Lake met with several GOP senators in Washington, a source familiar with the meetings said, including Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, John Cornyn of Texas, and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.

Sinema, who continues to caucus with Senate Democrats, has faced criticism from her one-time party colleagues over her refusal to support elements of Biden’s agenda.

Gallego recently reported raising $3 million over a three-month fundraising period that ended September 30, finishing the third quarter with more than $5 million in the bank. Sinema’s campaign said it closed the quarter with $10.8 million on hand – but that was roughly the same as her cash balance at the end of June.

Lake and Gallego made headlines in October when the two engaged in an debate in an airport. A video of the encounter was widely circulated online.

Lakes website says she’s on a mission to put Arizona first and is requesting signatures to get on the ballot.
