Chris Hayes
June 18, 2024

Chris Hayes: Kari Lake who ran for Governor in Arizona, former TV news reporter who campaigned against the fake news media. Not only parroted Trump’s lies about the 2020 election, she also subsequently claimed her own election was stolen and still does. In fact, Lake, who is not the Governor, but thinks she is, or that she won the Governorship. She is on the ballot again this year. She is running for Senate against the popular war veteran Ruben Gallego, congressman from Arizona. She has been losing to Gallego in every major poll taken in that race since February. 

Chris Hayes: Remember in Pennsylvania when they got TV Dr. Oz to run for Senate even though his primary residence was across the river in New Jersey? Well in place of Oz, this year they are running David McCormick, another rich carpetbagger who spends most of his time at a $16 million mansion in Connecticut bought with his hedge fund wealth.

Chris Hayes: In Wisconsin, which is a very contested swing state, Republicans have selected Eric Hovde, the CEO of a Utah-based bank who lives in a $7 million oceanfront mansion in Laguna Beach, California, not far from his main office. Hovde also recently took fire for defending his claims about voting irregularities by suggesting that residents of nursing homes are too close to death for their votes to count.
