Arizona Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Kari Lake has it right in new comments she made to Fox News Digital, in which she highlighted President Donald Trump’s ability to energize American voters.
She told the outlet, “I have faith that in 2024, people are going to show up in such massive droves because things have gotten so bad. And when President Trump’s on the ticket, they’re going to show up. He brings people out, he brings enthusiasm.”
Her latest remarks come after a few tense races in several states last week, including Virginia, Kentucky, and Mississippi. As reported by RSBN, Trump ally Gov. Tate Reeves, R-Miss., won his reelection bid in Mississippi. Republican candidate and Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, however, did not.
Per Fox, Democrats also won control of the Virginia state legislature. These recent turns of events have sparked some debate among conservatives about how to further engage Republican voters and increase turnout ahead of the 2024 election.
There’s no doubt that President Trump energizes the Republican base like no other candidate. He is far and away GOP voters’ dominant choice to win the Republican primary nomination next year (by a whopping 48 points, per Morning Consult).
Last year’s midterms were heated and exciting. President Trump was closely involved in many races, endorsing candidates in key races across the country and holding countless “Save America” rallies in important states. Per RSBN, Trump netted 219 endorsement wins last year against only 16 losses, which is a riveting record, despite what mainstream narratives may claim.
Incredibly, Trump himself is also projected to be leading big-time in swing states like Nevada, Georgia, and Pennsylvania, according to legacy media outlet, The New York Times. This further indicates that Trump is bringing unrivaled energy to the 2024 ballot, leaving other Republican hopefuls in the distant dust.
On X, Lake commented on her interview with Fox News Digital, writing, “The American people are tired of excuses. I’m more interested in solutions. It’s time to end the GOP culture of losing because we’re getting in our own way.”
She encouraged Americans to “embrace America First policies that help every class of American citizen” and boosts voter turnout exponentially.
It is clear from not only voter turnout in 2020, but in 2022, that Republicans and Independents are looking for candidates who are authentic, interesting, and trustworthy. Keep in mind that in 2020, millions more voters turned out for Trump than in 2016. They were energized by his administration’s track record of success.
In 2024, Americans are crushed under the strain of Biden’s America, but they clearly do not trust other Republican candidates like they trust Trump.
Kari Lake is right: Trump will bring voters out to the ballot box in 2024, and in doing so, he will bring America First policies back to the White House.
