Biographical Info:

I am Kari Lake, the former news anchor for Fox 10 News in Phoenix. I became a symbol of truth in journalism when I walked away from my lucrative career in the corporate media despite being number one in the ratings for more than two decades. I did so because the media was pushing propaganda and I was not interested in taking part in that,

The citizens of Arizona urged me and recruited me to run for Governor of Arizona to take our state back from carreer politicians many of who have gotten us into the mess we are in. I am running on a platform of common sense conservatism dedicated to individual liberties, low taxes, limited regulation, and protecting Arizona’s great Western heritage.

I am a voice for the silent majority suffering at the hands of cancel culture, critical race theory and the devastating effects progressive policies piling up on America’s formerly great cities.


Establishment politicians on both sides of the aisle have failed us. It’s time to elect a visionary, America-First Governor to lead Arizona into the future. I have earned the endorsement of President Trump because we both believe that the road forward needs people who will stand strong for traditional American family values and beliefs, and put Americans and Arizonans first in everything we do. We have to finish President Trump’s wall and secure our border, get our homeless population off the streets and into treatment, and give our children a strong moral and educational foundation free of woke indoctrination.


Donald Trump,
