As Politico notes, Arizona has been a percolating hotbed for Trump’s involvement in primaries ever since his falling out with current Republican governor Doug Ducey. With Ducey out due to term limits, the primary has become a proxy battle of a Trump-endorsed candidate in Kari Lake versus a Ducey-endorsed candidate:
Donald Trump will travel to Arizona later this month to campaign for Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, escalating an emerging proxy fight between the former president and Gov. Doug Ducey, who has endorsed a rival GOP candidate.
Trump’s Saturday rally in Prescott Valley, which was announced Monday night, comes ahead of the Aug. 2 primary. Lake is running against a field that includes Karrin Taylor Robson, a former member of the Arizona Board of Regents and a wealthy GOP donor who last week received Ducey’s support.
The primary is the latest point of contention between Trump and Ducey. The former president has repeatedly assailed the Arizona governor for refusing to overturn the 2020 election outcome in Arizona, which President Joe Biden won narrowly.
Polling in the governor’s race shows Lake in the lead, but the race is tightening in recent weeks:
Lake, a former news anchor, held a comfortable lead in the governor race several months ago. A poll conducted by HighGround had Lake at the top with 30% of the vote and Robson trailing at 9.5% in April. Now, HighGround shows the two Republicans are statistically deadlocked, with Lake at 39% and Robson at 35.3%.
For the time being Lake still looks to be ahead by a handful of points but Robson has made up a lot of ground. Lake has also had some stumbles within her own campaign recently as well.
Former Vice President Mike Pence has endorsed Lake’s opponent and will be campaigning today in Arizona as well.
On the Senate side, Trump-endorsed Blake Masters is now in the lead among the GOP field hoping to challenge Democratic incumbent Senator Mark Kelly in November:
There’s a new frontrunner in the race to become the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate for Arizona. According to a new poll from OH Predictive Insights, Blake Masters is leading a crowded pack in the GOP Senate Primary, with 25% of responders going to him. Wealthy businessman Jim Lamon got 18%, while Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich dropped from first to third with 14%. Michael McGuire got 6% while Justin Olson finished last with 2%.
There are still 35% of Republican primary voters undecided meaning the race is still quite open but Masters remains the front runner for now.
The rally kicks off around 7 pm ET with Trump taking the stage around 10 pm ET. Follow the Trump Save America rally schedule page to stay updated on future events.
