Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake announced Tuesday that she is officially the first candidate from Arizona to qualify for the August primary ballot.
In a statement, Lake said, “IT’S OFFICIAL: We’re on the ballot!” She also wrote, “Today I filed my paperwork & turned in DOUBLE the amount of signatures required to qualify for the August Primary ballot!”
“It only took us three weeks to get enough signatures-record time!” Lake rejoiced. “Our movement cannot be stopped.”
Not only did Lake qualify, but she wrote in her official press release that she is the only candidate in the Arizona governor’s race that has done so thus far.
“Kari Lake is the only person from either party that has officially qualified for the August Primary ballot,” the release stated.
It continued, “While her opponents are paying up to $35 for each signature, the Trump-endorsed Candidate for Governor had enough signatures to make the ballot all the way back in June of 2021.”
After achieving this massive step in her campaign, Lake commented, “Our campaign has more energy and support than any other in Arizona history and we have reached another milestone: the first Candidate on the ballot!”
In September, Kari Lake was endorsed by President Donald Trump and has had remarkable success in the polls against her potential primary challengers. A recent survey showed that Lake, a former news anchor, is the only Republican candidate expected to be able to defeat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, D-Ariz., in this crucial gubernatorial race.
Lake is heavily favored to win the GOP primary for the gubernatorial race in Arizona. She will most likely face a hotly contested race with Hobbs if she does.
Challenging her opponent, Lake wrote, “Today, when Secretary of State Katie Hobbs signed my filing papers, she certified her own election loss.”
