Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake is raising her national profile another notch in a weekend trip to the great state of Iowa, where she is holding a meet and greet event in Bettendorf, hosted by the Scott County Republican Women and the Scott County Republican Party.
On Friday, the meet and greet event drew huge crowds. “OMGosh!!” Lake commented on Twitter. “This crowd in Iowa is twice as big as we were expecting. Team is moving furniture to make sure we can fit everyone inside. Don’t go anywhere, folks. We are making room!”
A video posted to social media showed eager supporters lined up out the door and into the parking lot.
Lake’s meet and greet is one of two events she has planned this weekend. On Saturday, she will hold another meet and greet in Ankeny, Iowa, that will be hosted by the Dallas County Republican Party and Northside Conservatives.
Early Saturday morning, Lake posted a photo of the long line to get into the event on Twitter, noting, “WOW! My team just sent me this photo of the line to get into our first Iowa Event today. Folks waiting in freezing temperatures, plugged into this fight to Save America! I’ll see you soon!”
Lake’s popularity has spread across the nation, and her name has become synonymous with a rallying cry for election security in the U.S.
As reported by RSBN, Lake is currently fighting for election security by presenting evidence of overwhelming corruption in Maricopa County, Arizona, election processes by way of a lawsuit that takes aim at Maricopa County election officials and former Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.
Lake recently told Piers Morgan that she had traveled a lot in recent days, engaging Americans in her fight to restore election integrity. “I go all over this country,” she said. “I’ve been, probably, to six states since the election. In Arizona I can’t walk ten feet without an Arizonan saying, ‘I voted for you, everybody I know voted for you, our ballot was rejected on Election Day, please keep fighting for us.’”
The lawsuit is currently pending in the Arizona Appellate Court.
