  • If Kari Lake fails to receive a “decent ruling” in her election lawsuit, she may pursue a Senate run.
  • Lake’s statement came on Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk’s show, Real America’s Voice.
  • Kirk asked Lake if she would ever “entertain” the idea of running for Arizona senator, to which Lake explained that while she is “entertaining” the idea, her “number one priority” is the election lawsuit case.
  • “I represent we the people, and if they want us gone so badly that they’re willing to steal an election then I’m not going to let them have that, I won’t go away,” Lake said.
  • Kari Lake recently claimed at the 2023 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that she was offered a bribe to stay out of politics for two years.
  • Lake explained how someone showed up at her door and offered her a “job title, with a huge salary, a position on a board.”
  • Lake told the person to “let your handlers back east know that I can’t name a price, because there is no price that I would sell out my country for.”
