Arizona GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake is once again taking jabs at RINO Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) — who is one of the firebrand Republican candidate’s favorite targets, aside from her Democrat opponent Katie Hobbs.
Lake roasts Cheney often, as the outgoing Wyoming congresswoman — who recently lost her primary to America-First candidate Harriet Hageman by a devastating 37 points — has made it her mission to prevent the Republican gubernatorial candidate from winning her election.
Cheney, who claims to be a Republican, recently released an ad through her PAC urging Arizona voters to support Democrats in the midterm elections on November 8. The ad specifically attacked Lake and GOP Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem, who is running for Arizona secretary of state.
During an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday, Lake addressed Cheney again — thanking her for her continued attacks against her, claiming that her opposition was the “biggest fundraiser to date.”
Lake asserted that she has been able to successfully use Cheney’s public opposition to her candidacy to raise $500,000.
“Liz Cheney now is officially my biggest fundraiser to date,” the Republican candidate said. “We raised a half-a-million dollars since she did the anti-endorsement, and people are still flocking to our website, Kari Lake.com, and donating. It has been an incredible boom for us in fundraising. So I have to extend a big thank you to Liz. And at this rate, Tucker, we might have to invite her to our inaugural ball because we have to thank her for bringing in so much fundraising money for us.”

Lake previously thanked Cheney for her attack ad in a post on Twitter, calling it a “generous in-kind contribution” to her campaign.
“Thank you for your generous in-kind contribution to my campaign,” she wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. “Your recent television ad urging Arizonans not to vote for me is doing just the opposite. Our campaign donations are skyrocketing and our website nearly crashed from traffic as people rushed to learn more about my plan to put Arizona First and join our historic political movement.”
“Thank you again for the huge boost to our campaign! Enjoy your forced retirement from politics. I know America will rest easier knowing that one more warmonger is out of office,” the statement continued.
