Arizona Republican Kari Lake recently addressed the rumors that she would be placing another bid for office in 2024.
Lake lost the 2022 gubernatorial race in Arizona against Democratic Governor Katie Hobbs; however, she has not yet conceded. Instead, she has continued to claim that her defeat was caused by alleged election fraud. During a meet and greet in Iowa, Lake spoke with MAGA supporters about the possibility of her placing a bid for a national office.
Iowa is Lake’s home state, as well as the first stop in the primary for the presidential election. She previously noted that her team had not wanted her to go to Iowa while she was facing her ongoing legal battle. She added that they had advised that it would look like she was “running for something.”
However, Lake said that her focus is completely on the court case for fighting the election results in Arizona, a case which she is willing to take all the way to the Supreme Court. She also said that the Arizona governorship is her primary focus, but that if her case did not receive the desired ruling, she may consider running for Senate.
Still, she maintained that representing the people with this court case was her top priority, as she did not want to let people think that they could get away with stealing elections.
