Polling released on Thursday by an Arizona pollster showed former gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake with a commanding 26-point lead in the race for the Arizona Republican Party (AZGOP) nomination for U.S. Senate.
Conducted between October 25 and October 31, the Noble Predictive Insights (NPI) poll showed Lake has the support of 40 percent of Arizona’s Republican primary voters. Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb (R) placed in second place with 14 percent of support. The poll’s margin of error was plus or minus 5.25 percent.
Former U.S. Senate candidate Blake Masters also received 10 percent of support, but he has since declared he will instead mount a campaign for the House seat being vacated by Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ-08) at the end of her term. NPI founder Mike Noble noted Masters’ decision, and stated that “Lake is likely to benefit the most” from his share of the vote.
