Republican Kari Lake filed paperwork Tuesday to run for Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s (I) seat in Arizona, laying the groundwork for a potential three-way race in a critical swing state.
Lake, who previously ran for Arizona governor, registered her Senate campaign committee with the Federal Elections Commission a week ahead of her expected campaign launch.
The former news anchor lost to now-Gov. Katie Hobbs (D) last year, drawing attention as a Trump-aligned candidate who was among the party’s most prominent election deniers running for office. Lake has not accepted the results of the 2022 gubernatorial election.
