Lake: “Grateful for Sen. Cotton’s Endorsement”
Kari Lake expressed her gratitude for Sen. Cotton’s endorsement, highlighting his military service and conservative values. Lake stated, “I am grateful for the endorsement of Sen.

Cotton to secure our border and get America back on track from Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer’s far-left agenda.”
A Highly Contested Race
The Senate race in Arizona is anticipated to be one of the most closely watched contests of the year. Republicans are aiming to regain the majority in Congress’ upper chamber, which is currently held by Democrats with a slim 51-49 margin. Democratic Senators Sinema, Sanders, and King maintain control with the support of Independents.
With the endorsement of Sen. Cotton, Lake has garnered support from two prominent senators, including Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming. Additionally, she has received backing from Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York and several House Republicans. Former President Trump has also endorsed Lake, further solidifying her campaign.
Lake’s main contender for the Republican nomination is Pinal County . The primary winner is expected to face Phoenix-area Democrat Rep. in the general election. The decision of whether Sen. Sinema will run for reelection remains unknown.
