DELUSIONAL REFUSAL: Failed MAGA gubernatorial candidate just can't let go

Arizona’s losing Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake is rumored to be considering a run for the United States Senate.

The election denier is currently embroiled in a legal battle challenging the results of her 2022 election loss but apparently hasn’t ruled out the possibility of a bid for Senate.

“Kari Lake is considering running for the U.S. Senate seat held by Kyrsten Sinema in 2024,” CNN’s Kate Sullivan wrote on social media.

According to a tweet by Sullivan’s colleague, Kyung Lah, sources reportedly told the mainstream media reporter that Lake “will not make a final decision on whether to run for Senate until after her court case is completed,” Newsweek reported.

A staunch Trump supporter – and 2020 election denier – Kari Lake has spent the months following the election filing lawsuits and refusing to concede.

Though her case was dismissed by a Maricopa County judge, the former Phoenix local news anchor continues to assert that there was widespread election fraud in her election – despite a lack of supporting evidence.

This puts the ego-driven political hopeful in a legal and political conundrum if the Trump loyalist chooses to take run for Sen. Senator’s seat.

Arizona – along with Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, and Texas – has resign-to-run legislation on the books that prevents elected officials from running for another position without first vacating their current one.

“Arizona has a very strict resign-to-run law,” Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) said. “It’s not possible for her to be Arizona’s shadow governor and a Senate candidate at the same time.”

If Lake even did do this, it would ultimately force her to admit that she lost the 2022 election – but will she?

Gallego is rumored to be the primary challenger to Sinema for the left-wing nomination – the current Senator changed her party affiliation last year from Democrat to Independent.

Online polling website Blueprint Polling recently conducted a hypothetical poll paring Lake, Gallego, and Sinema‘s chances in a head-to-head matchup.

The ultra-MAGA Trump acolyte led the results with 36% of the vote.

Gallego received 32%, and Sen. Sinema’s closed out the poll with just 14% of the potential vote.

But polls don’t elect Senators– voters do.

Arizonans have already rejected Lake’s brand of partisan politics.

Unfortunately, she refuses to read the room.
