On election day Tuesday, Arizona Governor candidate Kari Lake told members of the press that she expects to win two terms back to back and also vowed she’d be the media’s “worst freaking nightmare for eight years” if elected.
Lake, a former local TV journalist known for her barbs against the press, lit into a CBS reporter after he asked if she would serve a full term if elected, noting political rumors that she would be Donald Trump’s running mate if he runs for president in 2024.
“I am going to not only be the governor of Arizona for four years,” she said. “I am going to do two terms. I’m going to be your worst freaking nightmare for eight years, and we will reform the media as well. We are going to make you guys into journalists again.”
“So get ready. It’s going to be a fun eight years,” she added. “I can’t wait to be working with you guys for eight years.”
Lake added she would be “so thrilled” if Trump does run again, saying he needed to return to office to fix everything President Biden had “screwed up.”
Lake held forth with journalists for several minutes after voting in Phoenix, clashing with reporters who pressed her on rhetoric about concern with election integrity. She called her opponent, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, “incompetent” and reiterated she should have recused herself from overseeing the election.
Lake has made the media a frequent target on the campaign trail, calling them “monsters,” “fake news” and suggesting they should be defunded.
Tuesday was no different, as she pointed at the crowd of media around her and saying she saw several fake news “propagandists” in attendance.
Her comments came in response to a reporter’s question about whether if she would leave the governorship to join a potential Trump 2024 ticket as his vice president.
She responded, “Are you new covering this race? Because we’ve talked about this before,” before launching into her “worst nightmare” promise.
At press time, the governor’s race between Lake and Democrat Katie Hobbs had not yet been called by the Associated Press.
