In familiar Trump fashion, Carrie Lake has made unsubstantiated claims that the 2020 election was characterized by fraud, and that Joe Biden was not legally elected.
“Unfortunately, we had a stolen election, and now we have an illegitimate president in the White House,” Lake said in June as she campaigned before the primaries.
At the time of writing, Lake and Democrat Katie Hobbs were very evenly matched in the polls. The Republicans already have the governor today.
She was previously mentioned as a potential vice president if Donald Trump announces his candidacy for president for 2024. However, when asked about this by the press, she said that she plans to be governor for eight years.
– We’ve talked about this before. I have already answered this question. “I will only be governor of Arizona for four years – I will complete two,” she added. media.
Lake, a former television journalist, issues a warning to the press:
– I will be their worst nightmare in eight years and we will reform the media as well. We’ll turn you into reporters again, so get ready. Eight years will be fun. Lake says, I look forward to working with you.
Arizona is traditionally a Republican-dominated state, but it has become increasingly democratic in recent years. The state elected Donald Trump in 2016, but it was one of the swing states that Biden won in 2020, with only about 10,000 votes.
