Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake spoke with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures over the weekend; Lake was asked about comments made by Rep. Liz Cheney in which the soon-to-be-gone Wyoming congresswoman promised to campaign against Lake.
Lake says it’s a “gift.”
“The people of Wyoming can’t stand her…I’m pretty sure the people of Arizona don’t like Liz Cheney,” Lake says.
“That might be the biggest, best gift I have ever received,” Lake said of Cheney’s comments. “The Republican Party, the new Republican Party, is the party of we, the people. It is no longer the party of warmongers.”
“Liz Cheney probably should change her voter registration. Turns out she really is a Democrat after all,” the GOP candidate added.
Cheney made her comments at the Texas Tribune Festival over the weekend.
“In this election, you have to vote for the person who actually believes in democracy,” Cheney said. “If we elect election deniers, if we elect people who said that they’re not going to certify results or who are going to try to steal elections, then we really are putting the republic at risk.”
