ROUND UP: Kari Lake Campaigns In Front Of Confederate Flag 

Lake “Repeated Lies that the 2020 Election was Stolen from Former President Trump, Doing It in Front of a Flag Associated with Slavery in the South”

ARIZONA -–  Recently, Kari Lake made a campaign speech standing in front of a Confederate battle flag, continuing to push election conspiracy theories and standing alongside a legislative candidate who faces “allegations that he inflated his military background.” Lake’s campaign has refused to answer for her decision to campaign in front of a Confederate flag.


  • Fox 10: “Well, Senate candidate Kari Lake gives a campaign speech in front of a Confederate flag. First reported by the local newspaper, the White Mountain Independent, then The Guardian, and the New York Times. It happened on May 31st at a Trump themed merchandise store in Show Low. The Republican frontrunner repeated lies that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Trump, doing it in front of a flag associated with slavery in the South. Lake was stumping for Steve Slaton running for Arizona’s Seventh District. Slaton owns the store and is under fire himself for claiming he was a combat pilot, but a veterans group says he was actually a mechanic. Fox 10 reached out to the Lake campaign for comment, but haven’t received a response.”
