( – Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) an important ally of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has officially endorsed Kari Lake in the Senate race in his state. This state could be an important step to the GOP winning the majority in the upper chamber.

Lake had previously announced her campaign to win a seat in the Senate in 2024, trying to flip the seat that was previously held by Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat turned Independent. Previously Lake had lost the 2022 gubernatorial election in the state.

In a statement to Fox News Digital, Cotton stated that Lake was a fighter and that she would work to secure the state’s border while also lowering the cost of living. He added that the Biden administration’s policies had caused many problems in the state and that Lake would be capable of standing up against the Biden agenda. Finally, he called for people to vote for Lake so that the Republican party could win back the Senate.

Lake told Fox News following the endorsement that she was grateful for the support. She also pointed out that she was looking forward to working with Cotton to help the country rebuild and get back on track.

The Senate race in Arizona is expected to be one of the most closely watched races in the upcoming election as the Republicans are trying to win back the Senate which is currently under Democratic control. The Democrats hold a slim 51-49 majority and rely on the support of three independents in order to pass legislation.
