Having garnered the endorsement of former President Donald Trump, Republican Kari Lake is currently seeking to become the new Governor of Arizona. Before entering the political arena, Lake was part of the mainstream media, reporting on the daily antics in D.C. But after watching the Southern border be overrun with illegal migrants thanks to the Biden administration, she decided to take a stand. And with that, both the Democrats and media have had a rather difficult time handling Lake when it came to interviews and the constant smear campaigns against her.
Taking part in an interview with The Republic, as can be seen in the video below, Lake took the time to inform the reporter about the people she was working for. “I offered my border policy to the Arizona Republic. Your management refused to take it unless I took out the word invasion, which tells me that you guys are on the side of the cartels.”
After being asked why she took the interview in the first place, the Republican answered, “Stacey, you been here ten months? You don’t understand Arizona. I’m sorry to say that. I’m out with people every day. I’m out with hundreds of people every day. Thousands of people sometimes. They’re fed up with what’s happening at our border?” She added, “I appreciate your time, but I’m really prepared for another hit piece from The Republic. The good news is our polling is showing that every day you guys write a hit piece on me or every week. And it’s not sticking because the good people of Arizona, who I have a relationship with, and I’ve had a relationship with for 27 years, are not buying the garbage that you guys are peddling.”
Tired of the constant attacks against her, Lake reiterated what the Arizona people want and how the mainstream media has lost touch with the citizens. “You don’t understand the people because you haven’t had a relationship like I have for 27 years. And you’re here at ten months, acting like you know what the people of Arizona want when it comes to the border. The people of Arizona want a secure state. The people of Arizona want to make sure their kids don’t get their hands on drugs. The people of Arizona want to make sure that the cartels no longer have operational control of our border.”
Declaring that she would be the next governor, Lake promised, “And we will, when I am governor, take back control of our border. We will finish President Trump’s wall. We will send our Arizona National Guard down to the border, and we will arm them. We’re not going to let people over, and when we find people, we’re going to send them back.”
