Blake Masters to Enter U.S. Senate Race, Will Face Kari Lake and Sheriff Mark Lamb in GOP Primary

According to The Wall Street Journal, Blake Masters is about to announce a run for the U.S. Senate, potentially as soon as next week. Masters lost the Arizona senate race last year to incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Kelly and will join a Republican primary field that includes Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb. Kari Lake is expected to announce her run in October. Incumbent Kyrsten Sinema, who switched her party registration from Democrat to Independent and is now seen as vulnerable, has not announced whether she is running for re-election. State Representative Ruben Gallego (D-AZ-03) is widely expected to obtain the Democratic nomination, challenging her from the Left.

The Messenger reported on Wednesday, “A Republican operative in Arizona who was granted anonymity to discuss internal deliberations told The Messenger that Masters made his decision a couple of weeks ago and that an announcement video is ready to launch next week.”

Masters posted on X a few days ago that he participated in a space with legislative candidate Dr. Andrew Jackson called “Blake Masters & Praying for America and Arizona.”

Lake responded, “I hope you bring up election fraud, and Election crime. You’ve been quite silent. And ‘Dr’ Andrew doesn’t think it exists.”

She replied to another comment, “The question is what has ‘Dr.’ Jackson and Blake done to root out voter fraud, or simply show support those of us who are pushing for election reform??Answer? Nothing.”
