Former Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has managed to take a sizeable lead over her opponents in a race for Independent Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s seat next year, according to a new survey.
According to a VCreek/AMG poll, which was released by Americas PAC, Lake had a commanding lead with 41 percent over far-left Rep. Reuben Gallego, who had 36 percent support from respondents. Sinema, meanwhile, finished a distant third with 16 percent support.
Lake discussed the poll’s results during an appearance on Fox Business with host Larry Kudlow, explaining that chaos along the U.S.-Mexico border caused by President Joe Biden’s lax enforcement policies is a major reason why she is doing so well — she opposes his policies.
“Well, it’s the border and the economy and basically getting back to policies that make sense and help Arizona families so they feel secure,” Lake said about the biggest issues facing Arizona.
