Kari Lake is the only Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate who will stand strong and defend her ideas.

Lake has risen to the top for her bravery in going toe-to-toe with the Fake News Media, fighting for her positions, and destroying every liberal reporter who has tried to stump her. Not even the Fake News Media can touch Kari.

In June, the Arizona GOP will hold 2022 primary debates for Republican candidates moderated by AZGOP Chairwoman Dr. Kelli Ward.

The debates will feature Arizona candidates for Secretary of State, Governor, Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Attorney General.

The Arizona Republican Party tweeted the dates for each debate. Tickets are available here.

The deadline to respond has already passed. Only Trump-endorsed outsider Kari Lake has agreed to defend her positions in the gubernatorial primary debate. The deadline for candidates to “grow a spine” and respond has been extended to Monday.  

What are the other candidates afraid of?

In a statement to The Gateway Pundit, Lake said they’re “afraid of defending their records.”

Lake: The Arizona Governor’s race is the most important race in the country. At stake: the safety and security of our country’s border and elections. If we nominate a weak, washed-up Political Insider like Matt Salmon or Karrin Robson, then radical leftist Katie Hobbs will win. It’s as simple as that.

The fact that Matt and Karrin are afraid of debating me and defending their records speaks volumes for just how bad their records are.

Both of them have been lobbyists for more than 15 years. One of them lobbied for the interests of the Communist Chinese regime while turning ASU into a woke university. The other is an open-borders, pro-abortion, pro-Covid mandates RINO who’s also a transgender activist. She is trying to fool Arizona voters with millions of dollars in TV ads paid for with her husband’s cash.

If they can’t go toe-to-toe with a fellow Republican, I can promise you they can’t go toe-to-toe with the Feds, the Teacher’s Union, the Media, Katie Hobbs, or the Cartels. What a shame.

Fellow Republicans took to Twitter to roast Lake’s competitors. Gubernatorial RINO Matt Salmon recently sided with the Dems and called on Trump-endorsed Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers to resign from office, proving that he is the anti-free speech candidate.

Salmon is also endorsed by Arizona’s RINO Turncoats, House Speaker Rusty Bowers and State Senator Paul Boyer. Kari Lake is endorsed by Donald J. Trump.


Lake’s closest polling challenger, RINO Karrin Taylor Robson, has a proven liberal voting record with the Arizona Board of Regents. She is Arizona’s pro-choice RINO. Previously, Robson has shown support for transgender restrooms and stated that she is not proud of our Great American History.

Kari Lake War Room hit them both in a tweet highlighting their support for COVID mandates. Kari Lake is anti-mandate and pro-medical freedom, especially on campus. She previously told ASU President Michael Crow to “take the mask and shove it!” during a rally at Arizona State University.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Kari Lake is polling higher than all other Republican gubernatorial candidates combined. She is the only candidate who can beat Soros-funded radical Katie Hobbs in the general election. 

This is because Kari Lake is the only candidate talking about Hobbs‘ rigged 2020 Presidential Election, and she is vowing to uncover the truth as Governor. Arizona recognizes a true fighter for America First and election integrity.

President Trump has previously said, “Kari Lake will go down as the greatest Governor in our Country’s history.”
