Steve and Kari_edited.jpg

The Trump-backed candidate for Arizona governor endorsed constitutional conservative Steve Zipperman for Arizona State Senate. Kari Lake was a former anchor for Fox 10 News in Phoenix and became a symbol of truth in journalism when she walked away from the mainstream media despite being number one in the ratings for more than two decades.

 

Kari Lake wrote this about Steve Zipperman;
 

“Steve Zipperman and I share the same ideals and approaches that will make Arizona free, safe, and prosperous, as represented by my own policies. As an America First candidate, Steve understands that our country and State have reached a turning point, resulting in either failure or a return to greatness. We must choose greatness. As a State Senator, he will serve the people of Yavapai and Coconino Counties well.” 

This endorsement comes after Zipperman filed his petitions with the Arizona Secretary of State’s office to appear on the Republican ballot for LD-1. Steve Zipperman had this to say in response to his endorsement by Kari Lake;

“I am honored that true conservative Kari Lake has endorsed me to become the next State Senator for the great state of Arizona. Kari and I both agree that Arizona needs to move in a new, more conservative direction driven by America first policies. The soul of this nation is under attack by radical leftists. In the Arizona Senate, I will work tirelessly alongside patriots like Kari Lake to restore the soul of this nation and make Arizona great.”
