    A new poll from The Trafalgar Group shows Trump-endorsed State Representative Mark Finchem (R-Oro Valley), who is running for Arizona secretary of state, more than six points ahead of his opponent, Democratic former Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes. Conducted between September 14 and 17, the survey of 1,080 likely voters by the Republican-aligned pollster found that 47.5 percent chose Finchem and 41.1 percent chose Fontes. Finchem told The Arizona Sun Times he believes his lead is due to championing election integrity. “Our lead in the polling comes from our message that the people want to secure their elections, they want clean and accurate voter rolls and they want someone to prosecute the fraud,” he said. “The grassroots in Arizona have done a great job spreading this message: #JustFollowTheLaw.” Finchem led on election integrity while serving in the Arizona Legislature, sponsoring bills and holding an election integrity legislative hearing in Tucson last December, where he produced an email from an anonymous sender who alleged there was a plot by Democratic officials to insert 35,000 fraudulent votes into the Pima County 2020...
    Trump-endorsed Arizona elections hopeful accuses Pence of attempted 'coup'
    Abe Hamadeh has eschewed the center and stuck to the Right since winning the Republican nomination in his bid to be elected Arizona attorney general, a critical post in a key swing state. Whereas Blake Masters, the Republican nominee for Senate in Arizona, attempted to moderate his position on abortion after the Aug. 2 primary, the 31-year-old Hamadeh still vows, according to his campaign website, to oppose the procedure “beginning at conception.” And in an interview with the Washington Examiner just before Labor Day, Hamadeh, endorsed by Donald Trump, declined to downplay the former president’s unsupported claims that the 2020 election was stolen. “The 2020 election was definitely rigged,” Hamadeh said. “We no longer have confidence in our electoral process, and I think it’s damaging to our country.” Hamadeh referred to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg saying the social media giant suppressed the Hunter Biden laptop story following FBI warnings of "Russian propaganda," plus a federal judge’s extension of voter registration in Arizona in 2020, a decision later overruled by the liberal 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. “I have a...
    Republican candidate for Arizona governor Kari Lake has endorsed a conservative antisemitic candidate for the Oklahoma state Senate who once said that Jewish people "will go to hell." Lake, who received former President Donald Trump's endorsement, threw her support behind Jarrin Jackson, who has an alleged history of making antisemitic and homophobic comments. Lake touted the conservative as an "America First fighter." 'ASK YOUR KIDS': KARI LAKE SAYS TRUMP AND DESANTIS HAVE 'BDE' Former President Donald Trump (left) introduces Arizona Republican candidate for governor Kari Lake (right) as he speaks at a rally on Jan. 15, 2022, in Florence, Arizona. (Ross D. Franklin/AP) "We need fighters in EVERY state that’s why I’m proud to endorse Jarrin Jackson for Oklahoma state senate," Lake said in her endorsement. "Jarrin is an America First patriot and does so much to advance our America First movement. RINOs & the Soros media attack him relentlessly because he’s over the target.” Lake's endorsement of Jackson comes less than a month after she rejected an endorsement from an antisemite, claiming she...
    Arizona and Ohio will play a key role in determining which party controls the Senate next year, testing venture capitalist Peter Thiel’s influence in the Republican Party, and seeing how far policy-focused acolytes of former President Donald Trump can go. Ever since Trump captured the 2016 Republican presidential nomination and went on to upset Hillary Clinton, there has been a debate over whether his personality, policies, or celebrity was the defining characteristic that put him over the top. Trump lost to President Joe Biden in 2020, but was still competitive in the Rust Belt and came within 43,000 votes in Arizona, Wisconsin, and Georgia of a second Electoral College majority. Hillbilly Elegy author J.D. Vance and fellow venture capitalist Blake Masters are the Thiel-connected Republican nominees for Senate in Ohio and Arizona, respectively. They take Trump’s positions on immigration, trade, and foreign policy, all considered deviations from the Republican orthodoxy from Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush. Both men were endorsed by Trump in their primaries. BIDEN HAD NO FAITH IN THE AFGHAN GOVERNMENT — UNTIL IT CAME TIME TO...
    Republican candidate for governor Kari Lake speaks at a 'Save America' rally by former President Donald Trump in support of Arizona GOP candidates on July 22, 2022 in Prescott Valley, Arizona.Mario Tama | Getty Images News | Getty Images Former local news anchor Kari Lake will win Arizona's Republican gubernatorial primary, NBC News projects, notching another win for the pool of candidates endorsed by ex-President Donald Trump. Lake will advance to the general election, where she will face off against Democrat Katie Hobbs, currently Arizona's secretary of state. The race to succeed term-limited Republican Gov. Doug Ducey has gained national attention as Lake, a Trump loyalist who has repeatedly spread false claims that President Joe Biden's 2020 electoral victory was stolen, emerged in the polls as the GOP's frontrunner. The gubernatorial primary mirrors a larger power struggle within the Republican Party between purportedly more traditional conservatives and adherents of Trump's brand of hard-right populism. Those two factions have often diverged on the question of the 2020 election, which Trump still falsely maintains was rigged against him through widespread voter fraud....
    In Missouri, scandal-ridden former Gov. Eric Greitens is attempting a political comeback. In Michigan, a crowded field of Republican gubernatorial candidates includes a man charged in the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol attack. In Arizona, a prominent figure in the QAnon conspiracy movement is running for the U.S. House. Those are among some of the most notable contests in Tuesday’s primary elections being held in six states. Arizona, which Democrat Joe Biden narrowly won in 2020, is a top target for former President Donald Trump, who tried in vain to get his defeat overturned. He has endorsed a slate of candidates up and down the ballot who have promoted his false claims of a stolen election. Trump has also been zeroed in on the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach him over the Jan. 6 insurrection. Three of them are on the ballot Tuesday in Washington state and Michigan, as are two members of “the Squad,” Democratic Reps. Cori Bush of Missouri and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan. Meanwhile, Kansas voters could clear the way for the Republican-controlled Legislature to further...
    Early ballots for Arizona’s primary election were mailed last week, prompting a flurry of last-minute endorsements for candidates. Governor Doug Ducey, former Vice President Mike Pence, and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie endorsed Karrin Taylor Robson in the gubernatorial race, and Ducey took it a step further, criticizing Trump-endorsed gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake during a CNN appearance, prompting a sharp response from Lake. Lake, who is leading by a substantial amount in recent polls, has portrayed Robson and those endorsing her as RINOs. She told The Arizona Sun Times, “Doug Ducey, Chris Christie and Mike Pence are all herding around Karrin Taylor Robson. It turns out RINOs travel in packs.” She tweeted on Sunday, “It really is so sad to see @GOP Governor @DougDucey join the Propagandists at @CNN to blast Trump AND the Trump-Endorsed Republican candidate. I just can’t figure out why he doesn’t support our America First Movement. I hope the @RGA does!” In April, Lake called Robson “Doug Ducey in a dress.” On CNN Sunday, Ducey told host Dana Bash, “This is all an act.” He...
    Brandon Bell/Getty Images Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, who is endorsed by former President Donald Trump, reportedly shared an anti-Trump “not my president” meme on Facebook. Lake posted the meme ahead of Trump’s inauguration in 2017, according to a Fox News report on Wednesday. In addition to the meme, the post included a call for a “National Day of Mourning and Protest” that included “join[ing] local protests,” wear[ing] black,” “boycott[ing] TV coverage,” “unfollow[ing] Trump on social media,” chang[ing] profile pictures to black, using the hashtag “Not My President,” and donating to Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and NAACP. Former Vice President Mike Pence, who served under Trump, endorsed Lake’s primary opponent Karrin Taylor Robson earlier this week. “As Arizona Democrats pursue the reckless Biden-Harris agenda, Karrin Taylor Robson is the only candidate for governor that will keep Arizona’s border secure and streets safe, empower parents and create great schools, and promote conservative values,” Pence told The Washington Post in a statement. In a Twitter thread thanking Pence for the endorsement, Robson appeared to take a shot at Lake. “Modern politics is full...
    Former President Donald Trump postponed his scheduled rally in Arizona following the death of his ex-wife Ivana Trump. According to a report from Fox News, Ivana Trump was found dead in her New York City apartment at the age of 73. She is the mother of the former president’s eldest three children: Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump. “I am very saddened to inform all of those that loved her, of which there are many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York City. She was a wonderful, beautiful, and amazing woman, who led a great and inspirational life. Her pride and joy were her three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. She was so proud of them, as we were all so proud of her. Rest In Peace, Ivana!” Donald Trump said in a social media post on Truth Social. According to a release the rally, which was originally scheduled for Saturday, will be postponed to the following week and will take place on July 22. The decision was made “out of love...
    State Representative Rusty Bowers (R-Mesa) is facing stiff competition for the Republican nomination for the state senate seat he is now running for, political watchers say, as the term-limited Arizona House Speaker campaigns against the well-known, Trump-endorsed former State Senator David Farnsworth to represent the people of the 10th Legislative District. State Representative Jake Hoffman (R-Queen Creek) warned that Bowers is a “career politician” who “will betray you repeatedly then lie to make you think they were on your side the whole time.” In a post on Telegram, he relayed a couple of his bad experiences in the Arizona Legislature with Bowers, while refuting Bowers’ new campaign ad. New Ad! The contrast in this election is clear. I will continue to get things done for Arizona, not just talk.

    Former President Donald Trump’s Save America PAC on Wednesday released the name of several guests who will speak at his Arizona rally. Trump is returning to the state in order to boost his endorsed candidates ahead of Arizona’s August Republican primary election. The former commander-in-chief has backed candidates for governor, U.S. Senate, attorney general, secretary of state, and several state legislature seats. According to a release, the event “is a continuation of President Trump’s unprecedented effort to advance the MAGA agenda by energizing voters and highlighting America First candidates and causes.” Many of the featured speakers are candidates endorsed by Trump: Kari Lake, Trump Endorsed Candidate for Governor of Arizona Blake Masters, Trump Endorsed Candidate for U.S. Senate in Arizona Abe Hamadeh, Trump Endorsed Candidate for Attorney General of Arizona State Rep.

    PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey on Thursday endorsed businesswoman Karrin Taylor Robson to be his successor, adding his name to a growing list of mainstream conservatives looking to boost her past Donald Trump-endorsed frontrunner Kari Lake. Robson, a political newcomer, has used her family’s vast wealth to blanket the airwaves and narrow the gap with Lake, a former television anchor who has energized the Trump base with combative attacks on journalists, Democrats and Republicans who have gone crosswise with Trump. With Ducey on board, all of the state’s living former Republican governors have backed Robson. Jan Brewer and Fife Symington endorsed her last year. Former U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon dropped his own campaign for governor last week and is now supporting Robson. “Karrin is the real deal — pro-life, pro-gun and pro-wall — and she’ll stand up to Joe Biden and the radical left,” Ducey said in a video announcing his endorsement. “Karrin is a strong, new leader for Arizona.” In a debate last week, Robson agreed that her plans wouldn’t bring radical change from...
    A Republican candidate in the Arizona Senate race questioned the origins of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, contributing to conspiracies that the riot had been staged. Blake Masters, a Republican endorsed by former President Donald Trump, had met with conservative activists at a Phoenix IHOP restaurant on March 30, where he was asked if he would support investigating U.S. intelligence operations to uncover the federal government's "nefarious activities," to which he replied, "absolutely," according to a recording of the meeting obtained by CNN. "Don't we suspect that, like, one-third of the people outside of the Capitol complex on Jan. 6 were actual FBI agents hanging out," Masters asked at the GrassRoots Tea Party Activists of Arizona event. "What did people know? And when did they know it? We got to get to the bottom of this." JIM JORDAN SHARES ALLEGATIONS OF FBI 'PURGE' OVER JAN. 6 The Arizona Senate candidate has attended several Trump rallies since Trump's loss in the 2020 election and visited Trump's Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, in May to watch a screening of Dinesh D'Souza's...

    (CNN)Blake Masters, the Republican Senate candidate from Arizona, met with conservative activists at a Phoenix IHOP this spring and was asked whether he would support investigating US intelligence operations to uncover the federal government's "nefarious activities."Masters replied, "Absolutely," and then floated the conspiracy theory that the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol actually may have been a false-flag operation set up by the FBI, according to a recording of the March 30 meeting obtained by CNN."Don't we suspect that like one-third of the people outside of the Capitol complex on January 6 were actual FBI agents hanging out," Masters asked at the GrassRoots Tea Party Activists of Arizona event. "What did people know and when did they know it?

While top Republicans like Senate GOP Leader...
    On Thursday, June 2, former President Donald Trump made an endorsement in Arizona’s 2022 Republican U.S. Senate primary, throwing his support to Peter Thiel protégé and tech investor Blake Masters and saying that Masters would make a better senator than his primary rival, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich. Masters, according to Trump, is the more MAGA of the two. And one of the things that Trump no doubt appreciates about Masters is his willingness to say racist things. Masters, journalists Jonathan J. Cooper and Jill Colvin noted in the Associated Press, has promoted the Great Replacement theory and “called for reducing legal immigration.” And in the Daily Beast, reporter Roger Sollenberger notes that Masters has blamed African-Americans for gun violence in the United States. The Great Replacement, a far-right conspiracy theory that is popular among White nationalists and White supremacists, claims that liberals and progressives in the U.S. and other countries are trying to “replace” Whites with non-White immigrants. Masters has accused Democrats of trying to “replace Americans who were born here.” During an April 11 appearance on “The Jeff...
    A gubernatorial candidate endorsed by former President Donald Trump pledged to refuse orders from President Joe Biden, if elected. Speaking with Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures, Kari Lake — a Republican running for governor of Arizona — flatly refused to recognize Biden as the legitimate President of the United States. “I’m not going to take orders, though, from an illegitimate president like Joe Biden,” Lake said — after rattling off a serious of campaign promises. “Arizona is going to do things the Arizona way.” Bartiromo offered no pushback, although — in fairness — the program was up against a hard out, as the show’s closing music was playing in the background. Earlier in the interview, Lake pledged to carry out a forsenic audit of the 2020 election in Arizona — which even a discredited Republican-led review showed was won by Biden. “We have a priority with our elections,” Lake said. “When I get elected, we’re going to go through that forensic audit, we’re going to fix every problem we have with our elections down here and make sure...
    Donald Trump-endorsed Kari Lake is leading the field in the race for the Republican nomination for Arizona governor, but the former president’s pick is far from secure as the front-runner, according to a fresh poll. Lake, a former local television news anchor, was leading with 29% support among likely GOP primary voters in a poll from OH Predictive Insights conducted April 4-5. But businesswoman Karrin Taylor Robson was in contention with 22%. Former Rep. Matt Salmon trailed in third, with 11%, followed by businessman Steve Gaynor at 3%. A whopping 35% of survey respondents said they were undecided about whom they would vote for in Arizona’s Aug. 2 gubernatorial primary, leaving the race to replace term-limited Republican Gov. Doug Ducey unpredictable and potentially volatile. The poll’s margin of error was 4.4 percentage points.

    The Republican running for Arizona governor who was not endorsed by former President Donald Trump is gaining ground, according to a mid-January poll. Former Rep. Matt Salmon, who does have the backing of the Club for Growth, trailed the Trump-endorsed former Phoenix news anchor Kari Lake by just 4 percentage points in the survey from OH Predictive Insights. That amounted to a 6-point gain for Salmon since the firm’s previous poll in November and a 7-point drop for Lake. She led Salmon 21% to 17% in the Jan. 11-13 survey, with 46% of registered voters undecided. “We’re finally starting to see some movement in Arizona’s GOP Governor Primary; Lake’s support is lolling while Salmon is swimming upstream,” Mike Noble, chief of research for OH Predictive Insights, an Arizona firm, said in a statement. DEMOCRATS SPY 2022 LIFELINE IN SUPREME COURT VACANCY Republican Gov. Doug Ducey is retiring in 2022 because of term limits, and a spirited GOP primary to replace him has ensued.

    Efforts by former President Donald Trump to establish a political beachhead in Arizona for a possible 2024 White House bid were less certain to succeed after the Republican he endorsed for governor reported a paltry $375,000 war chest. Kari Lake raised just $1.5 million last year, and spent nearly as much, despite winning Trump’s coveted backing. Wealthy self-funding Republican Karrin Taylor Robson entered 2022 with a much bigger war chest, $3 million, and began advertising on TV this month. Even former Rep. Matt Salmon, who raised slightly less than Lake in 2021, finished the off-year with more money in the bank, $492,000, to spend on his gubernatorial primary campaign. Lake, a well-known former television news anchor in Phoenix, remains a leading candidate for governor at the outset of the election year, said Kirk Adams, former chief of staff to outgoing Republican Gov. Doug Ducey. “She’s tapped into an enthusiastic part of the base that we know will show up to vote,” he said. But Adams and other Republican operatives in Arizona cautioned against declaring the nomination over because Lake has...
    In the past, Kari Lake was a Democrat, a television reporter and a critic of former President Donald Trump. But these days, the 52-year-old Lake is a Republican — specifically, a far-right MAGA Republican and conspiracy theorist of the Marjorie Taylor Greene/Lauren Boebert/Paul Gosar variety. Lake is seeking the nomination in Arizona’s 2022 GOP gubernatorial primary, and journalist Daniel Strauss — in an article recently published by The New Republic — warns that the possibility of Lake winning the primary can’t be ruled out. Lake, a relentless promoter of the Big Lie, has been endorsed by MAGA wingnuts who include MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn as well as Trump, who is willing to overlook the fact that she was once a critic of him. An anti-vaxxer, Lake has been quite friendly with QAnon activists. “Lake has never held elected office before, but she’s quickly risen in notoriety during this race,” Strauss explains. “She’s appeared with QAnon activists and Nazi sympathizers. She has supported a secretary of state candidate with ties to the QAnon...
              more   Live from Music Row Friday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy welcomed gubernatorial candidate for Arizona Kari Lake to the newsmaker line to discuss her mission for Arizona, endorsement by Donald Trump and battling the Fake News. Leahy: We welcome to our newsmaker line Kari Lake, a Republican candidate for governor in Arizona endorsed by former President Donald Trump. Welcome, Kari. Thanks so much for joining us today. Lake: I’m so happy to be here. Good morning. Leahy: Well, and as you know, you’re on The Tennessee Star Report. We own and operate 10 state-based newspapers. We also have and have covered your race in Arizona at The Arizona Sun Times by our reporter there, Rachel Alexander. Looks like you’re leading in the polls there. Tell us about why that’s the case.

    A former news anchor at a television station in New York is running for governor of Arizona. Kari Lake formerly worked as a new anchor for WNYT Channel 13 in Albany, New York, according to the Times Union. She also later worked as a news anchor at Fox 10 News in Phoenix. "Kari Lake, the former anchor for Fox 10 News in Phoenix, became a symbol of truth in journalism when she walked away from the mainstream media despite being number one in the ratings for more than two decades," her bio on her campaign website reads. On Tuesday, Sept. 28, Lake received an endorsement from former President Donald Trump in the Republican Primary for the 2022 Arizona governor’s race.
    Former Fox News Anchor Kari Lake speaks during the Rally To Protect Our Elections conference on July 24, 2021 in Phoenix, Arizona. Just when you thought no one could be more Trump than Trump, in walks Kari Lake, a toady MAGA fawner like no other. Proclaiming to “change the narrative,” the former FOX News anchor is running for Arizona governor with the same old GOP playbook—denying President Biden’s win, railing against mask and vaccine mandates, supporting QAnon, raging against what she calls “woke” culture, and publicly thanking a Nazi sympathizer for his support. Sounds like a Republican front-runner to me. And, of course, she’s endorsed by Herr Donald Trump.   Lake is frightening; she often and loudly uses her GOP dogwhistle. She has repeatedly called for Katie Hobbs, Arizona’s secretary of state and the likely Democratic candidate for governor, to be arrested after certifying the 2020 election. And during an August rally, she targeted journalists, calling them the “corrupt media,” saying many of them should be jailed for “lying about COVID, the election, the audit.”  x x YouTube Video Lake “came out of...
    (CNN)Kari Lake, the Arizona gubernatorial candidate recently endorsed by former President Donald Trump, has embraced fringe far-right figures in her campaign events, including publicly thanking a Nazi sympathizer for his support and appearing with figures linked to the QAnon conspiracy, a CNN KFile review of her appearances has found.At a campaign event in late August, Lake posed for a photo and video with far-right personalities Ethan Schmidt-Crockett, the founder of the AntiMaskersClub, who harassed a store specializing in wigs for cancer patients this summer because it required customers to wear masks, and Greyson Arnold, a Nazi sympathizer who has a history of making White nationalist, racist, antisemitic and pro-Nazi statements, including once calling Adolf Hitler "a complicated historical figure which many people misunderstand." "Anti-maskers club here with Kari Lake," said Schmidt-Crockett alongside Lake and Arnold in the video. "America First," they each said. After Arnold posted a photo of the trio on Twitter, Lake replied, "It was a pleasure to meet you, too."

Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.On November 30, 2020, Arizona’s Republican governor, attorney general, and chief justice of the state Supreme Court certified the state’s electoral votes for President Joe Biden. If Donald Trump has his way, that will not happen again for the Democratic candidate in 2024.  Kari Lake, a former news anchor who is now the Trump-endorsed candidate for Arizona governor in 2022, told One America News on Friday that she “would not have certified” the votes had she been governor at the time. She cited debunked lies about “serious irregularities” that were spread by the likes of Rudy Giuliani, whom she noted was in Arizona “at that very moment” of certification. (A New York court suspended Giuliani’s law license this year for making “demonstrably false and misleading statements” about the 2020 election.) Lake previously told the Arizona Republic that Trump was “the real winner of Arizona.” Her latest comments follow the much-hyped and highly dubious “audit” authorized...
