A former Fox 10 news anchor turned anti-media firebrand, Kari Lake has been picked as the Republican nominee for governor of Arizona. The political neophyte Lake won the Republican nomination in Arizona by campaigning on a platform of electoral reform and border security.
Lake entered the contest well-known among voters after appearing on the nightly news and receiving the endorsement of former President Donald Trump despite having no prior experience in politics. Since Ducey has already served the maximum number of terms allowed, the next governor of Arizona will be elected in the general election this coming November.
Who is Kari Lake?
Lake, 52, spent much of her 22-year career at Fox 10 news in Phoenix as a co-anchor for the evening newscasts with John Hook before retiring in early 2021. Having been born and raised in Iowa, she is the daughter of a public school educator and the ninth of a total of nine children.

In her late twenties, she moved to Arizona after studying journalism at the University of Iowa and began working as a weekend anchor for 12 News. There she met her husband of 24 years, they began dating. That’s right, the couple is up to two offspring.
After gaining some experience in Albany, New York, Lake joined Fox 10’s news team, where she became well-known throughout Arizona. There, she conducted two of the most coveted interviews in the history of journalism: with then-President Barack Obama and current President Donald Trump.
How did Kari Lake Get into Politics?
This is the first time the former newsreader has sought public office. Her video resignation from Fox 10 explained that she was no longer proud to be a journalist and that she believed the media was responsible for sowing “fear and division” in the country. She declared her candidature for governor three months later, saying she will always put “Arizona first.”
According to Lake’s campaign rhetoric, she is a force for positive change who will take on the state’s most pressing problems. She has been quoted as saying to The Arizona Republic, “The current quo isn’t working.” I intend to provide the innovative leadership necessary to meet these issues squarely.
