Kari Lake, the Trump-endorsed GOP gubernatorial candidate of Arizona, is surging in the polls ahead of the rapidly approaching midterm elections.
Lake has been wildly popular among potential Republican voters in the Grand Canyon State. A new Cygnal poll has confirmed that GOP Arizonans will likely be voting for her against Democrat gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs in November.
According to the poll, Kari Lake netted 40.3 percent of the potential vote when respondents were asked which Republican running for governor had the “best chance of defeating Hobbs.”
Karrin Taylor Robson, Lake’s GOP opponent ahead of the August primary, netted only 27.6 percent of the vote.
“It all makes sense now,” Lake shared on Twitter. “The @HillaryClinton Super PAC, @DougDucey, @WashingtonPost, @BretBair, @NYTimes … & more[.] They’re all working against Trump-Endorsed Kari Lake[.] Because they know she’s the ONLY one that can beat @KatieHobbs[.]”
According to a report from The Gateway Pundit, an anti-Kari Lake PAC has promised millions of dollars to support Karrin Taylor Robson. This same PAC has reportedly also supported Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in the past.
Ahead of the August primary election, Trump-endorsed candidates have experienced huge swells in the polls, indicating that President Trump’s picks in each political race are headed toward victory.
An OH Predictive poll looking at the upcoming 2022 GOP primary in Arizona also showed that Kari Lake is set to net 40 percent of the vote, despite the millions of dollars RINO donors funneling toward Robson.
President Trump will lend support to Lake’s gubernatorial campaign ahead of the Arizona primary on Saturday, July 16, with a Save America rally in Prescott Valley, Arizona.
Other Trump-backed candidates, including U.S. Senate candidate Blake Masters, state representative and candidate for secretary of state Mark Finchem (R), and candidate for attorney general, Abraham Hamadeh, will join Lake and President Trump to deliver remarks.
