Kari Lake, the Republican nominee for Arizona governor, gave an electrifying speech at CPAC 2022 in Dallas right before President Trump took the stage.
Fresh off her GOP Primary victory, Lake gave a powerful message to a raucous crowd.
The crowd erupted, chanting, “Kari, Kari!” before she could even say a word.
Lake’s unabashed attitude in calling out election fraud, the wide-open Southern Border, and mainstream media has made her one of the hottest politicians in America.
The establishment tried stealing the primary from Lake, but her lead was too much to overcome.
The Gateway Pundit recapped the attempted voter fraud schemes in Arizona throughout the primary.
Kari Lake overcame the compromised Primary election in Arizona last week. We reported on the massive voter fraud concerns and voting irregularities that were present in Maricopa County and statewide.
We also reported last night that Maricopa County is STILL counting the votes. However, Kari’s lead only keeps growing.
The election was so horrific that one County even ran out of ballots at the polls. Voters were reportedly disenfranchised and turned away from the polls.
During her speech, Lake described how she got into politics after leaving the Fake News Media, the endless attacks against her and her family, and how she finally “won an epic battle in Arizona.”
“We drove a stake through the heart of the McCain machine,” Lake declared at the end of her speech.

Here’s a transcript provided by The Gateway Pundit:
Lake: How many of you were inspired by President Trump at some point in your life? He inspired me. I would not be here without them. Man. I would not be on this stage. When I walked away from my career as an honest journalist of 27 years covering Arizona, honest to God, I had no idea that I would ever end up right here. I didn’t know what was in store for me. I promise you this. I never imagined this. This is not what I thought I would be doing. I walked away, and I truly handed my life over to God 100%. I walked away, and I put out a video to the people of Arizona explaining to them why I was no longer interested in working in a field that had become propaganda, the fake news back there. I didn’t care what they paid me. I didn’t care how much they were willing to throw at me. I was no longer willing to work for them. And I was not willing to lie to the people of this country. And we need more of them to walk away. So an amazing thing happened. After I put that video out, the people of Arizona reached out to me, and they asked me to run for office. They recruited me to run for office. And I agreed, but I didn’t know how to run for office. I mean, how many of you would know how to run for office? I’ll never forget the day I called the AZGOP and said, “how do I run for office? What do I do?“ Then I called my friends from church, my church ladies, and I said, “hey ladies, why don’t you come over? And you know, I’ve got a crazy idea. Bring a bottle of wine. I think you’re gonna need it. I mean, come on over right now.” And we threw together a ragtag team of non-political people to run the most exciting campaign in the country. And we won.
We didn’t play by the rules because frankly, I did not know what the rules were. I had no idea what they were. I would hear from high-priced political consultants, “Whatever you do, don’t talk about the election.” I didn’t listen to that. Then they would say, “don’t mention COVID shots and don’t mention the masks. Don’t talk about any of that.” Suffice to say I did not hire those losers. I ignored them. I ignored all of them. I did it my way and I listened to the good people of Arizona. And I stand before you today, the Trump-Endorsed Republican Nominee for Governor of Arizona!
Now, thank God I did not know what this would entail back then. God only showed me a little part of the path. If he would have showed me the whole darn thing, I might not be standing here. The lies, the nastiness, the endless attacks on myself and my family and my children. They follow us. They follow my children and take pictures of them. They park outside of our house. These people are evil bastards. Just look at what they put President Trump and his family through for seven years. He’s got the Globalists against him. He’s got the Fake News against him. He’s got the Left against him. And he’s even got some people in our own party against him. We call them the RINOs. Now listen, I feel for him because I actually got a taste of it myself. I actually kind of understand what it feels like to be President Trump. It’s not fun. It’s not fun at all. So one day, I called him, and I said, “Mr. President, they are giving me the Trump Treatment.” And he stopped me right there and he said, “Kari, don’t stop. That means you are directly over the target.”
So, I’m feeling pretty strong right now. But they tell me what’s about to come at me. It’s about to get even worse, even more painful. And you know what I say to them? “Bring it on. Bring it on!” I welcome the vitriol. I welcome to strife. I welcome the attacks, and I welcome every bit of it with ultimate gladness. You know why? Because this fight before us proves to us that God is with us. He has chosen me and he has chosen you. And I don’t believe for one second that God makes mistakes. You guys agree with that? He has placed each and every one of you here at this point in history because he knows our strengths. He’s placed us here because he knows that we will be the ones to save this great Republic. Absolutely.
Now this is where it’s gonna get a little difficult because I think we got to start welcoming people in. We’ve got to welcome in obviously any patriot who loves this country, right? You’re welcome into the movement. We’re gonna welcome the conservatives but not just the conservatives. We’ve got to welcome in the independents and we need to welcome in any Democrat disillusioned with the dead end ideas of the Democrat Party. And let me tell you, there are millions of them out there. We’ve got to welcome them into this party as they walk away. We need to say, welcome to the Republican Party, the party of We The People.
I know they want us to think it is a battle between left and right but this is truly a battle between those who want to save America and those who want to destroy her. That’s where we are at this moment. My question to you is are you in this fight with us? Are you ready to fight? Because we need each and every person to be in this foxhole with us. We all have to be willing to take the same hits that I’ve taken and that President Trump has taken. That means we got to be willing to put our job on the line. Who’s had to do that? You people out here a few I see hands have gone up. We got to be willing to put our paycheck on the line. I know how that feels. It’s not fun. We have to be willing to be attacked. And we got to be willing to lose a friend or two or 50. I think I’ve lost about 150. We have to be willing to be kicked off of Twitter. Don’t you think that our founding fathers lost a lot more than a Twitter account? They lost their livelihoods. They lost their fields. They lost their homes, those were torched. They had their families destroyed for what they believed in. Some of them even gave their lives fighting for this country. For them, America was just an idea. For us, America has been a reality and it is up to us to ensure that America does not become a memory.
This is our moment right now to prove to our ancestors that their struggles and losses were not done in vain. It is our moment to prove right now how much this country means to us. And I’m willing to take that sacrifice. And I know that you, in this room, are willing to take that sacrifice, because I want to tell you something. My father was a history teacher, high school history teacher, and nobody looks back on history on those who were unscathed. They’re not even remembered. It is only those of us who have the scars, who will be remembered, those of us with the scars of battle, those of us with the scars of persecution that will make history. We may have won this battle — and I won to an epic battle in Arizona. We drove a stake through the heart of the McCain Machine. I felt like I had to wear garlic around my neck when I did that. So my question is, are you ready to fight a few battles? Who’s up for it? We need to fight like hell to take this country back. I know that the man standing back there is willing to do it. I know I’m in this battle willing to do it who is ready to rise up and go out there and win this war to save America? Let me hear you.
