One of the biggest reasons Kari Lake was been so dominant as a newcomer to Republican politics is because she speaks her mind in public even when what she says may be “taboo.” On Newsmax, they generally don’t talk about the stolen 2020 election, but leave it to Lake to note that we have an “illegitimate president” while being interviewed on the channel.

“We need some strong governors to get in there and push back against the federal government, remind them who created the federal government,” she said. “It was the states that created the federal government, not the other way around. And we’re going to start proving to them that we are sovereign. We are not serfs of the federal government, especially not this federal government with this illegitimate president.”
It may rankle the Republican Establishment when a GOP candidate or politician even mentions that the 2020 election was stolen, but some seeking office, like Kari Lake, won’t bow to the Uniparty Swamp.
