GOP rock star Kari Lake has revealed that she’s “seriously considering” a run for the U.S. Senate next year.
Lake confirmed that she plans to decide whether to make a decision by the end of the year on whether to launch a U.S. Senate bid in Arizona.
“I’m seriously contemplating running for Senate,” Lake said during an appearance on Newsmax.
She added that she’s planning to make her decision in the next few months.

Lake, who is a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, said during an appearance on NewsNation that she will make her choice about running for Senate by the end of the year.
“I’ll do anything I can to help him get reelected,” Lake said of Trump during that NewsNation appearance.
While Lake didn’t indicate what could influence her decision, she has been a favorite among voters to run as Trump’s vice president in 2024.
Trump has yet to reveal who he has in mind but Lake would surely be on his list of names.
A chance at being on the Republican 2024 ticket would likely be a key factor in which way Lake goes.
Meanwhile, Trump appears to be on track to easily secure the Republican presidential nomination for a third time.
“Republicans will unite around our nominee, President Donald J. Trump, and together, we will put an END to Bidenomics,” Lake declared in a post on Twitter/X.
In a post earlier this month, Lake claimed that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis “is controlled by the swamp.”
DeSantis has been polling in second and third place in the GOP presidential primary.
However, DeSantis is way behind President Trump.
Last year Lake lost the Arizona gubernatorial election to then-Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat.
Since then, Lake has been battling in the courts over claims that she actually won the contest and that the election was stolen.
“I’ve looked at the polling, to be honest, and I believe I’m the only one who can win that race,” Lake said last month of Arizona’s U.S. Senate contest, according to NBC News.
