Former President Trump endorsed Kari Lake in the Republican primary for Arizona governor.
In a crowded GOP field, Trump endorsed the former TV news anchor who “will do a far better job than RINO Governor Doug Ducey-won’t even be a contest!”
“She is strong on Crime, will protect our Border, Second Amendment, Military, and Vets, and will fight to restore Election Integrity (both past and future!). She is against Covid lockdowns, Cancel Culture, and will end “woke” curriculum in our schools,” Trump said in his statement.
“Kari Lake has my Complete and Total Endorsement. She will be a great Governor for the incredible people of Arizona!” he added.
Multiple Republicans are aiming to replace Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, who has served two consecutive terms as Arizona’s governor and is not eligible for reelection.
Among the candidates are Arizona Board of Regents member Karrin Taylor Robson, Arizona state Treasurer Kimberly Yee and former U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon.
Arizona voted in favor of Trump in the 2016 presidential election but swung for President Biden in 2020, the first time in decades it had gone for a Democratic nominee.
Trump still falsely claims he won Arizona in 2020 and has gone after Ducey for not standing by his side in his incorrect claim.
“Good news! RINO (Republican In Name Only) Governor Doug Ducey of Arizona has restated the fact that he is not running for the United States Senate,” Trump said back in June, AZ Central reported.
“It would not matter, however, because he could not get the nomination after failing to perform on the Voter Fraud in Arizona. Also, there is no way he would get my endorsement, which means, his aspirations would be permanently put to rest anyway,” he added.Internet Explorer Channel Network
