- Former Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake alleged Saturday at the 2023 CPAC event outside of Washingtion, D.C., that she was offered a bribe to stay out of politics for two years.
- “Something happened to me this week before I left for CPAC and it shows how desperate these people are to stop me,” she said. “Somebody showed up at my door this week. 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 narrowly lost the Arizona gubernatorial election to Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and has since refused to concede, filing legal challenges.
- Lake is reportedly considering a run for the Senate seat held by Independent Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who left the Democratic Party on Jan. 23, in 2024.
- Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego announced his candidacy for the seat on Jan. 23.
