Former Valley TV anchor Kari Lake filed paperwork Tuesday to run for Arizona governor and launched a website promoting her candidacy.
Lake, who left Fox 10 in March after 22 years at the station, filed her statement of interest as a Republican.
A statement of interest is a necessary step taken before a candidate can start collecting nominating signatures.
Lake joins state Treasurer Kimberly Yee and Kerry Taylor Robson, secretary of the Arizona Board of Regents, on the Republican side of the race.
Candidates are seeking to replace Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, who can’t run for governor in 2022 because of term limits.
Lake’s website describes her as a candidate who “stands as a symbol of truth in journalism and represents the growing ranks of journalists who have walked away from the mainstream media market peddling fake news.”
