Kari Lake Gets Incredible News in Arizona

Arizona Democrat Rep. Ruben Gallego and Republican Kari Lake are running a close race for Arizona's Senate seat this year, according to a recent poll.

A poll conducted by North Star Opinion Research surveyed 600 likely voters in Arizona and found that Gallego holds a slight 1-point lead. The poll shows Gallego at 39%, Kari Lake at 38%, and Green Party candidate Eduardo Quintana at 9%.

The poll also indicates that former President Donald Trump is ahead of President Joe Biden by a significant margin in Arizona, leading by 10 points in a multi-candidate field. Trump is at 42%, Biden at 32%, and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. at 13%.

The poll was conducted from June 17th to 20th, following the public announcement of the New York decision against Trump.

Economic concerns are a primary reason for Trump's lead in the polls, as many Arizonans feel they were better off under Trump, with a margin of 18 points, 54% to 36%. Additionally, more than two-thirds of Arizonans (69%) believe Biden is not doing enough to combat inflation.

Among those aware of Bidenomics, 74% feel it either doesn’t work for anyone or only benefits the rich. Furthermore, 83% report that price increases since Biden took office have affected them, according to American Greatness.

Trump's significant lead is largely due to his support among two typically Democratic-leaning groups: Hispanics and young voters (18-34 years old).

Kari Lake is experiencing considerable success in fundraising for her campaign to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-Ariz.) in the upcoming fall election.

Lake's campaign reported raising $4.1 million in the first quarter of this year, which is about double what she raised in the last quarter of 2023, as noted by The Daily Caller. Lake's campaign now has approximately $2.5 million in cash on hand.

Democratic candidate Ruben Gallego raised $7.5 million in the first quarter and has $9.6 million in the bank, outpacing his Republican rival, as further noted by the outlet.

“Kari Lake doubled her fundraising haul from last quarter. She is seeing strong support from grassroots donors and Arizona donors,” a Lake campaign spokesperson stated. “Gallego is Far-Left, and out of step with Arizonans. Just like President Trump, Kari is performing strong in Arizona and will win in November.”

Lake's campaign garnered $1.3 million from 40,000 contributions, coming from about 22,000 individual donors. Most contributions were small, with 99% being under $200. The campaign received donations from all 50 states, Guam, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C.

On March 6, a fundraiser in Washington, D.C., raised $330,000, the day after Sinema announced she would not seek re-election. Gallego's campaign reported raising $1 million within 24 hours of Sinema’s announcement.

During the fundraising period, Lake received backing from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) and endorsements from several GOP Senators, including Tommy Tuberville (Alabama), Josh Hawley (Missouri), J.D. Vance (Ohio), Rand Paul (Kentucky), Markwayne Mullin (Oklahoma), and Cynthia Lummis (Wyoming).

In the last quarter of 2023, Lake's campaign raised $2.1 million, starting the election year with just over $1 million available for campaign use, according to Federal Election Commission records.

In comparison, Gallego's campaign raised $3.3 million in the same period and had $6.5 million available, as noted by the Caller.

A recent survey by the Bullfinch Group on Friday showed Lake and Gallego tied at 41%, with 10% supporting an unnamed independent candidate. An Emerson College poll on March 20 indicated Gallego had a four-point lead, with 16% of voters undecided.

The Cook Political Report classifies the race for Sinema’s seat as a “Toss Up” for 2024, along with Senate races in Montana, Nevada, and Ohio, the Caller reported.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has also endorsed Lake.

“Kari has proven that she will always prioritize the security and well-being of Arizonans and the American people and will not back down from a fight. I am proud to endorse her for the U.S. Senate today,” Cruz said in a statement shared with the Daily Mail.

Cruz commended Lake’s strong stance on immigration and border security, highlighting the state’s significant increase in unauthorized border crossings and the need for a capable leader.

“Border states have been on the frontlines of Joe Biden’s open border crisis for over three years, which is why we need a leader in Arizona who is not afraid to stand up and join the fight for a secure border,” Cruz stated.
