Trump Holds Rally To Support Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake

Kari Lake (R-AZ) got a boost in her gubernatorial campaign on Sunday when President Trump held a rally for her and a few other GOP candidates with the election just weeks away.

Lake used the rally to bash her political rival and democratic candidate Katie Hobbs on issues like abortion, hiding from debates, and her response to COVID. It was a speech aimed directly at the crowd that night and judging by the reaction of those present, Lake’s speech was very effective.

Lake began her career as a news anchor for Fox 10 in Phoenix and gained some notoriety for her refusal to call Arizona for Biden in the 2020 election even after her network had done so. According to The Atlantic, things got contentious on air with her co-anchor who was trying to call the election and he said, “Well, we’re taking our cues from Fox, the mothership, that’s kind of what we do.”

A few weeks after the election, Lake left the station and then television altogether. To this day, Lake has still not conceded the election to Biden and still contends that the electoral votes in Arizona do not belong to him.

Lake entered the political realm and then began her run for governor of a state that traditionally votes Democrat. She quickly garnered the support of Donald Trump both because of her policies and style.

Lake is a great public speaker and has put the skills that made her a good news anchor in a large market to use. She is no-nonsense and is not afraid to take the fight to anyone.

According to a FiveThirtyEight poll, what looked like an easy win for the Democratic party in Arizona has drawn almost exactly even.

Trump’s “Save America” political action committee (PAC) said that the rally in Arizona is, “a continuation of President Trump’s unprecedented effort to advance the MAGA agenda by energizing voters and highlighting America First candidates and causes.”

The former president also previously endorsed GOP senate candidate Blake Masters and included him along with Arizona GOP Reps. Andy Biggs and Debbie Lesko along with Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
