Kari Lake (R), who is running for Governor of Arizona, stunned reporters with her response when she was asked whether she would consider being Donald Trump’s Vice President if he ran in 2024.
“First of all, I don’t like Washington D.C. I especially don’t like it now,” the Gubernatorial candidate replied. “It’s funny though that question is asked because for so long many of you in the media have been trying to act like I don’t have the skill to run for Governor. Now apparently, I’m so skilled that you think I should be VP. So, I take it as a compliment, thank you for asking.”
When asked if she spoke with Donald Trump about it, she said she “talks with Donald Trump all the time”, but that she hadn’t discussed a VP position with him.
Lake then took aim at opponent Katie Hobbs (D) for dodging questions calling her a “coward” for ignoring the “pressing questions” from the media.
Before wrapping up her interview, Kari Lake finished with “I’m applying for a job, and the people of Arizona are the hiring manager, and they are my boss, and I’m going to be here much to the chagrin of some of you, not just 4 years as your governor, I’m going to be here 8 years as your governor, so have fun and get used to it because we are going places, and we’re going to be the greatest state in the country.”
