Kari Lake receives major endorsement from Senate GOP campaign arm

The NRSC is expected to host a fundraiser in D.C. in March with Lake.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee, the GOP Senate campaign arm, on Tuesday endorsed Kari Lake in the Arizona Republican U.S. Senate primary.

Lake began work even before she announced her bid last fall to show that she is ready to move beyond her 2022 Arizona gubernatorial loss and that she's ready to work with the NRSC and its chair, Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., to secure the swing state for the GOP, Politico reported. 

Lake said she is honored to have the prominent endorsement ahead of the state's primary next month. 

"We are uniting Republicans in Arizona and have a clear path to victory," she said. "The Senate Majority runs through Arizona."

The NRSC is expected to host a fundraiser in D.C. in March with Lake. Both Daines and Senate GOP Conference Chair John Barrasso, R-Wyo., the latter of whom previously endorsed Lake, are both listed on the invitation. 

A poll last month showed the Senate race is tense, as Lake has a narrow lead over her likely opponent, Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego. The dynamics of the race may change if incumbent independent Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who previously won her seat as a Democrat before leaving the party, enters the race. Sinema has yet to make a formal announcement about whether she is running for reelection.
