In a total “stick it to Republicans” way, Republican Liz Cheney, Rep. Wyoming, is running an ad against the GOP candidate for governor in Arizona, Kari Lake.
Cheney’s 30-second ad will air on television, online, and streaming platforms in Arizona before the upcoming gubernatorial election on November 8th.
In the political ad, Cheney declares, “I don’t know that I have ever voted for a Democrat, but if I lived in Arizona, I absolutely would. You have a candidate for governor, Kari Lake, you have a candidate for secretary of state, Mark Finchem, both of whom have said that they will only honor the results of an election if they agree with it.”
And of course, Cheney was sure to add in the left’s talking point regarding saving democracy from people like Kari Lake and other MAGA, America First candidates.
She says, “And if you care about the survival of our Republic, we cannot give people power who will not honor elections. We must have elected officials who honor that responsibility.”
Kari Lake is not one to take these attacks lightly. She came out swinging. Lake penned an open letter thanking Cheney, Lake said that Cheney’s ad campaign ended up being her “biggest fundraiser yet.”
She opened the letter with, “Dear Liz, Thank you for your generous in-kind contribution to my campaign.”
Lake said that “urging Arizonans not to vote for me is doing the just the opposite.”
Isn’t that a kick in the teeth for Liz?
“Our campaign donations are skyrocketing and our website nearly crashed from traffic as people rushed to learn more about my plan to put Arizona First and join our historic movement,” Lake said in the letter.
And the cherry on top? Lake informed her, “In fact, my team tells me your commercial should add another 10 points to our lead! I guess that’s why they call the Cheney anti-endorsement the gift that keeps on giving.”
Cheney was forced into retirement during the primary season this year, losing to Harriet Hageman in August.
She has since turned her obsession with stopping Donald Trump and anyone associated with him into political action committee (PAC).
She converted her House campaign committee into “The Great Task,” described as an organization that seeks to “mobilize a unified effort to oppose any Donald Trump campaign for president.”
Kari Lake is a Trump-endorsed candidate that many are calling the new star of the Conservative Movement. She’s a fighter and doesn’t back down from opposition or tough questions.
Her opponent, Democrat Katie Hobbs, refuses to get on the debate stage with her. Hobbs, the Arizona secretary of state, claimed on Meet the Press Now on Friday, that Kari Lake is only “interested in creating a spectacle and having the spotlight…”
It looks like Katie Hobbs ‘basement Biden strategy’ isn’t working out too well. Lake leads her gubernatorial opponent by 11 percentage points, according to FOX 10 Phoenix.
