Lake appeared for an interview in the Clay Travis and Buck Sexton show Friday to share his reaction to a report that Kennedy, who is currently facing President Joe Biden for the Democratic presidential nomination, may run as a third-party candidate.
“That’s going to make it very difficult when there are three people, three parties running in any election, whether it’s the Senate seat in Arizona, the presidency, it’s going to make it much harder for these people to cheat because they don’t know what it’s going to be. on the inside of the ballot,” Lake said. “It might be on a Democratic ballot, but that Democrat might vote independently this time to vote for RFK Jr., so I think we’re going to see some dynamics in this election that will make it harder for them to cheat.”
Lake lost the most recent Arizona gubernatorial election to Katie Hobbs and claimed the election was rigged afterward. During the interview, Lake blamed fraud, mail-in ballots and voting machines “manufactured by our adversaries” for what she calls a “broken” election.
“It’s not comfortable being on the front lines of the fight for electoral integrity because you get called names, but frankly, I’m 54 years old. I don’t care what names they call me. I’m a middle-aged woman. Call me. whatever you want,” Lake said. “I just want to have a country for my children to grow up in and that’s how we’re getting the victory.”
A last month’s survey found that in a hypothetical Democratic primary race, 64% would select Biden, while 13% would support Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Marianne Williamson captured 10% and an additional 12% said they did not know.
This is Kennedy’s first political campaign, although he comes from a well-known political family.
