The NRSC meets with many candidates and potential candidates for office and doing so shows no sign of preference on behalf of the committee.
But in Republican circles, including in Arizona, there are fears of Lake entering the race for Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s seat after Sinema defected from the Democratic Party to be an Independent.
Lake is a conservative firebrand closely associated with former President Donald Trump. She has been litigating her gubernatorial loss in Arizona, contesting without evidence that the final results were marred by fraud. A number of Arizona Republicans, including failed Senate candidate Blake Masters, are also considering a run for Senate.
Lake is also set to travel to Iowa next Friday for a meet and greet with the Scott County Republican Women.
