Kari Lake Tells McCain Republicans to “Get the Hell Out” and Calls White Nationalist State Senator Wendy Rogers “A Hero” 

While Kari Lake attacks members of her own party, Katie Hobbs backed by coalition of Arizona Republicans 


Phoenix –  Despite once promising to unite her Republican Party, Kari Lake continues to attack Senator John McCain and praise white nationalist and Oath Keeper Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers at a rally Friday night. Lake addressed the crowd, saying, “We don’t have any McCain Republicans in here, do we? Get the hell out! It was the party of McCain. It was bad. Arizona has delivered some losers, haven’t they? But we have some winners as well. We have Wendy Rogers… who is the toughest woman I know. We have so many heroes just like Wendy here in this state.” 


“Let’s be clear — Kari Lake has made no effort to hide her out-of-touch and extremist views, instead seeking the support of out-of-state extremist politicians and fringe politicians like Wendy Rogers,” said Josselyn Berry, spokesperson for the Arizona Democratic Party. “Meanwhile Katie Hobbs is busy building a broad, bipartisan coalition of Arizonans and securing endorsements from Arizona Republicans. Lake is running on nothing but her out-of-touch ideas like criminalizing abortion and election conspiracy theories. It’s more clear than ever before that she is far too dangerous to be Arizona’s Governor.”  


Lake continues to lash out at members of her own party. In an October interview with The Conservative Circus, Lake referred to the Republican party as “a cavalcade of losers” and attacked Senator John McCain, calling the state’s widely respected Republican Senator a “loser”. Three days out from election day, Kari Lake has little support from Arizona Republicans, instead relying on the endorsements of out-of-state extremists like Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis and Ted Cruz. 


Republicans continue to cross party lines and support Katie Hobbs, stating that Kari Lake is too extreme and poses a threat to Arizona. Katie Hobbs has earned the endorsements of prominent Republicans, including Former U.S. Attorney Paul Charlton, former Vice Mayor of Phoenix Peggy Neely, and CEO of Chicanos por La Causa David Adame.
