OPINION: Kari Lake isn’t gaining any ground in Arizona’s Republican governor’s race. Maybe a Trump endorsement isn’t what it used to be.

By Laurie Roberts | Arizona Republic

Kari Lake, Republican frontrunner in the governor’s race, is the frontrunner no more. 

After spending more than a million dollars on her campaign, snagging Donald Trump’s endorsement and grabbing all of the headlines in the race, it appears this particular Lake has gone stagnant.

She’s dropped seven points since November, according to a new poll of registered Republicans by OH Predictive Insights.

The drop in support isn’t steep, given the poll’s 5.7% margin of error. But the fact that Lake isn’t attracting any new Republican support?

Maybe a Trump endorsement isn’t what it used to be.

Lake jumped into the race last June with a bellyful of anger, raging her way right to the top of the heap, saying all the right things to win over hard right Republicans.

Attack the media? Check. 

Embrace conspiracy theories about election fraud? Check. 

Rail about the border/masks/teachers?  Check, check, check.

Add in already strong name ID, from her two decades as a news anchor, and it didn’t take long for Trump to endorse her, making her the candidate to beat in the Republican primary.
