Things to do when you plan to make a Senate announcement: Meet with current senators, meet with the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), and make your name known. She’s checked all of these boxes. Trump’s leading lady is positioning herself for a pivotal announcement.
Kari Lake is meeting with the NRSC and current U.S. Senators this week to discuss her bid for the Senate. She already became a household name with the election in 2022. She has very close ties to Trump, and though she will face a primary, she polls higher than likely competitors.
Kari Lake is currently leading the GOP primary field among likely Republican primary voters at 38%, followed by Taylor Robson and Lamb with 10% and 8%, respectively, according to an April 16 J.L. Partners poll.
“One of the only tools we have to push back against Joe Biden’s destruction of America is our Republicans in Washington,” Caroline Wren, spokesperson for Lake, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Kari Lake looks forward to a jam-packed schedule with a number of media hits and meetings with GOP Leaders to advance our shared America-First agenda.”
While Lake would likely draw a majority of the GOP vote in the primary, considering her ties to former President Donald Trump, some Republican political experts are concerned she wouldn’t be successful in the general, according to Politico. In the battleground state of Arizona, the experts fear Lake might lose swing voters in the general due to her contesting her 2022 loss.
