Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz endorsed Kari Lake's Arizona Senate race on Monday.
Former President Donald Trump has strongly endorsed Lake.
“Kari Lake will go to DC to shake things up, and that’s exactly the kind of leadership that Arizona needs in the United States Senate. I am proud to endorse Kari Lake for the United States Senate because she has the policies, the drive, and desire to defeat the Washington War Machine and restore American liberties,” Sen. Paul said in a statement.
Rep. Gaetz said in a separate statement, “Kari Lake is MAGA to her core and cannot be bought by the establishment. I am proud to endorse her for the United States Senate in Arizona. I am very much look forward to watching her shake up the halls of power.”
Lake wrote in a post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, that she is "so thankful to have the endorsement of America First warriors."
They are champions for fiscal responsibility, liberty, and fighting against the Washington War machine.

"They are champions for fiscal responsibility, liberty, and fighting against the Washington War machine," Lake continued. "I look forward to working with them to implement President Trump’s agenda!"
Shortly after announcing her run, Trump posted a video to Truth Social with his endorsement.
"Kari Lake will be an incredible Senator for the Great State of Arizona. She has my Complete and Total Endorsement!" Trump wrote in the post with the video.
“When I’m back in the White House, I need strong fighters like Kari in the Senate. She is a fighter. She’s strong and she’s good. She’s got a great heart by the way,” Trump said.
“I will need a majority in the House and in the Senate. We have to have a big strong majority to help me push our America first agenda through and to push it through really fast – that starts right here tonight by helping Kari Lake win in Arizona and she will win too,” he continued.
Lake is running for the seat that Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, an independent, currently holds. She will face off in the primary against Republican Mark Lamb.
Sinema left the Democratic Party last year and has not announced if she will seek re-election. Rep. Ruben Gallego is running for the seat on the Democrat side.
