DSCC Statement on Lake Senate Announcement

Fox News: “Republicans worry Kari Lake…will lose Arizona Senate race.”

In response to Kari Lake’s anticipated entrance in to Arizona’s GOP Senate primary, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chair Senator Gary Peters released the following statement: 

“Lake’s campaign announcement is Senate Republicans’ worst nightmare. She has dangerous views and harmful policies: an abortion ban without exceptions, ending Medicare and Social Security, and fringe conspiracies that are far out of step with normal Arizonans. Even Republicans didn’t want Lake to run because voters rejected her before, and they’ll do so again in 2024.”

What to know about Lake and Senate Republicans’ “deep concern” about her candidacy:

  • The Washington Post: “There is deep concern about Lake’s viability in a general election, national Republican operatives said, given her recent statewide loss, continued focus on false election fraud claims and her unfavorable ratings”

  • National Journal: “Her hard-right views are not palatable to the Arizona electorate at large, as evidenced by her losing gubernatorial bid.”

  • Arizona Republic: “Former Yuma County GOP Chair Phil Townsend, who endorsed Lake in the 2022 election…feels that Lake has taken the party ‘in a direction that I’m not comfortable with.’ […]  ‘I think she’s proven herself to be a grifter and a sore loser, and I’m not going to be able to support her.’”
  • The Washington Examiner: “a Republican strategist based in Washington who requested anonymity to speak candidly said ‘If she runs, Republicans lose. It’s that simple.’”
