Kari Lake continues to shine brighter and brighter as the Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate. She recently had a slam dunk on disgraced Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming. Lake thanked the GOP lawmaker for her PAC’s ad urging Arizona voters to support Democrats during the upcoming election.
The ad from the Cheny-sponsored PAC called “the Great Task” features Cheney saying, “I don’t know that I have ever voted for a Democrat. But if I lived in Arizona, I absolutely would.”
In the ad, Cheney claimed that both Lake and GOP Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem, who is running for Arizona secretary of state, said that they would only honor the results of the election if they agreed with it.
Cheney says, “If you care about the survival of our republic, we cannot give people power who will not honor elections.”
The Great Task has indicated that it will pay $500,000 to run the ad on broadcast, online, and streaming platforms.
The irony is that while the ad is intended to pull people away from backing Lake, it is helping her campaign.
“Thank you for your generous in-kind contribution to my campaign,” Lake declared in a message directed toward Cheney. “Your recent television ad urging Arizonans not to vote for me is doing just the opposite. 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 political movement.”
“Thank you again for the huge boost to our campaign! Enjoy your forced retirement from politics. I know America will rest easier knowing that one more warmonger is out of office,” the note read.
Cheney, known for the war against former President Trump, lost her primary in Wyoming earlier this year to Trump-backed opponent Harriet Hageman.
She may be the GOP’s new secret weapon…Keep up the good work, Liz.
