45th President Donald Trump on Tuesday gave a glowing endorsement to Kari Lake, Arizona’s most well-known news anchor, to become the next governor of Arizona: She will “make her wonderful family, and the MAGA movement, very proud.”
She is a “fantastic person,” Trump said in his endorsement of Lake who is competing against a crowded field of Republican gubernatorial primary candidates. Lake is “strong on Crime, will protect the border, Second Amendment, Military and Vets, and will fight to restore Election Integrity (both past and future!),” President Trump stated.
Trump added that Lake “is against Covid lockdowns, Cancel Culture, and will end ‘woke’ curriculum in our schools,” he said. She will “do a far better job than RINO Governor Doug Ducey.”
Reacting to the endorsement, Lake told RSBN’s Brian Glenn in an exclusive interview on Tuesday that she feels “so blessed” to have this endorsement.
“I, much like President Trump, care so much about this country, I care so much about Arizona, and like President Trump, I am a political outsider,” said Lake. “Im not doing this for fame, and I’m certainly not doing it for money, because there’s no money in politics if you’re being an honest politician. The only politicians that get rich are the corrupt ones.”
Explaining why she is running to replace Gov. Doug Ducey (R), Lake said she, like Trump, is stepping to the place to stand up for American values.
“I’m doing this because, much like President Trump, he inspired me and millions of Americans to step forward and do the right thing and lead this country and…find this spirit of the founding fathers deep within us to rise up and lead at difficult times like we’re in right now,” Lake told Glenn.
Lake, a former news anchor for Fox 10 in Phoenix, said she walked away from her career in media where she held the #1 position in ratings for over two decades “to do something more meaningful” and give people more than “half truths” as an anchor. Now, she’s determined to give “the whole truth or nothing at all.”
The gubernatorial candidate stated she is still “not over 2020” and said “we need to fix” what happened in the presidential election, referring to voter discrepancies.
Current Gov. Doug Ducey swiftly certified Arizona’s 2020 election results, despite numerous reports of voting irregularities. Lake has vowed to bring accountability to those involved with election tampering, who could be revealed soon as a result of the Maricopa County audit report.
Lake, a political outsider, will likely face off against Sec. of State Katie Hobbs, D-Ariz., a politician of over 10 years, in the race to decide who the next governor of Arizona will be.
