Kari Lake, a Republican from Arizona, has been battling the “powers that be” in an effort to shed light on the election anomalies that occurred in Arizona in November. Katie Hobbs, a Democrat and Secretary of State, was proclaimed the victor in the governor contest against Katie Lake, a Republican. Lake lost by a slim margin.
Lake appealed her case to the Arizona Supreme Court last week, citing difficulties with ballot printers that disenfranchised Republican votes and erroneous proof requirements. Since she began her pursuit of the truth and justice about Arizona’s electoral systems, she has been the target of relentless attacks. As a former television newscaster, she has demonstrated her ability to withstand media criticism.
Lake has refused to capitulate and launched challenges in court. At least 20% of voting locations were afflicted by malfunctioning tabulation equipment, prompting apologies from municipal officials. In addition, a Republican lawsuit to extend voting hours was rejected by a court in Maricopa County. Lake just made a surprising discovery about the Arizona issue at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C., during the past weekend.
As the designated keynote speaker at the conference, Lake demonstrated her staunch conservatism.
On Saturday, Lake disclosed that she had been offered a bribe to abstain from politics for two years. Lake said, “Something happened to me this week before I left for CPAC and it shows how desperate these people are to stop me.”
“Somebody showed up at my door this week,” Lake continued. “They called me before and said: I gotta talk to you in person, this can’t be done over the phone … They came to my door and they tried to bribe me out of getting out of politics. This really happened. I’m telling you this because this is how disgusting politics is. A mom who runs for office and they’re afraid of me? They tried to bribe me with a job title, with a huge salary, a position on a board.” Lake continued, “This person standing before me was sent at the request of some powerful people back east. They want me out of politics.”
“I’m not going anywhere,” Lake finished.
Kari Lake just told us at #CPAC the Left tried to bribe her to leave politics for the next 2 years.
They try to sideline leaders: Pres Trump, Matt Schlapp, James O’Keefe, me & others.
The pattern of the Left’s behavior is clear – but so is ours: We’re not going anywhere!

Lake has taken a firm position against liberal politics and the exploitation of Arizona’s electoral process. Former President Donald Trump has and continues to promote her, and conservatives praise her every move. Several individuals have predicted that Lake may become Trump’s vice president. Similar to Trump, Lake is like a dog with a bone when it comes to election integrity.
Newsweek reported that the majority of attendees at this weekend’s CPAC conference picked Donald Trump to be the Republican nominee for president in 2024. Trump, who earned 62 percent of the vote in the straw poll, beat Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who received just 20 percent of the vote, by an overwhelming margin. DeSantis has not officially declared his candidacy for the Republican nomination in 2024. Nikki Haley of South Carolina is the only other avowed Republican following nomination.
The victor of the voting for Trump’s probable running mate was Kari Lake, who earned twenty percent of the vote. DeSantis, who Newsweek says is expected by many to enter the race, ranked second with 14 percent in that survey. According to reports, DeSantis was in Texas attending GOP fundraising events. Haley won 10% of the vote to become Trump’s running mate at CPAC.
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former South Carolina Governor and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley attended CPAC; however, neither candidate earned a position in the CPAC voting for the Republican presidential nomination. CPAC’s short list for vice presidential selections did not include front-runner Lake, but rather South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, 2008 Republican vice presidential contender Sarah Palin, and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
Lake was the featured speaker at CPAC, but Haley and Pompeo also addressed the audience. The Washington Times noted that their itinerary on the podium had them speaking in the afternoon, when the ballroom was not full but the atmosphere was enthusiastic.
“I’m not a Nikki Haley fan,” Patti Roberts said as the left the auditorium after both speeches that afternoon. Roberts lives in Great Falls, Virginia. She noted that although Haley’s speech was “amazing,” Noem would make a better running mate for Trump.
Suzanne Monk, a conservative who lives in Washington, said the running mate spot belongs to Greene. “I wrote her in,” Monk said. “We definitely need somebody in that seat who has a strong will, because owe saw what we got under Mike Pence.”
