Republican gubernatorial candidate for Arizona, Kari Lake, gave credit to Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) for a failed advertisement that ultimately increased support for Lake’s campaign.
Cheney spent $500,000 hoping to slow momentum from the Kari Lake camp that seems to keep picking up steam days before the election.
“You have a candidate for Governor, Kari Lake, you have a candidate for Secretary of State, Mark Finchem, both of whom have said that they will only honor the results of an election if they agree with it,” Cheney stated in the ad. “And if you care about the survival of our Republic, we cannot give people power who will not honor elections.”
Lake wrote, “Thank you for your generous in-kind contribution to my campaign. 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.”
“In fact, my team tells me your commercial should add another 10 points to our lead,” Lake continued. “I guess that’s why they call the Cheney anti-endorsement the gift that keeps on giving.”
“While we appreciate your in-kind contribution, the $500,000 ad buy likely exceeds Arizona’s $5,300 individual contribution limit,” Lake warned.
“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,” Lake concluded.

Lake spoke with Tucker Carlson on Fox News, and they noted Cheney’s unique strategy.
Carlson: “I’ve never voted for a Democrat. Well of course, Liz Cheney is a left-wing Democrat who won’t stop lying. So, in response to that ad, Kari Lake wrote this letter to Liz Cheney.”
“It begins: ‘Dear Liz, thank you for you generous in-kind contribution to my campaign. Your recent TV ad urging Arizonans not to vote for me is doing just the opposite. Our donations are skyrocketing and our website nearly crashed from the traffic.’ Kari Lake is running for governor of Arizona, as noted, she joins us tonight, Kari Lake. Is that true?”
Lake: “That true. Liz Cheney is now officially my biggest fundraiser to date. We’ve raised a half million dollar since she did the anti-endorsement and people still flocking to our website KariLake.com and donating. It’s been an incredible boom for us in fundraising, so I have to extend a big thank you to Liz. At this rate, Tucker we, might have to invite her to our inaugural ball because we’ll have to thank her for bringing in so much fundraising money for us. “
