A poll released by J. L. Partners that was shared with The Hill on Monday shows that former Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake holds a significant lead in a hypothetical Arizona Senate Republican primary.

According to the poll Lake would receive 38% support in an Arizona Senate GOP primary among registered Republican and undeclared voters. The only candidate to achieve double-digit support is former Arizona gubernatorial candidate and developer Karrin Taylor Robson with 10%.

In third place, according to the poll, was Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb with 8%. Fourth was former Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters with 7%; fifth was former state Attorney General candidate Abe Hamadeh with 4%; and sixth was a businessman and former Arizona Senate candidate Jim Lamon with 3%. Of those asked, 2% stated they would support someone else, while 29% said that they were undecided on whom they would support.

There is still a lot of time for candidates to get more people on their side, which could potentially mean that a different candidate might end up leading instead of Lake. So far, Lamb is the only candidate to have officially launched his race.

Lake was preferred by both those respondents who would support former President Trump and those who would support Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) as their presidential picks. Among those who did not have a preference in the presidential race, Lake and Robson were tied with 13%.
