Candidates Threatened Leading Up to Midterms
Kari Lake is just one of many candidates who have been threatened or attacked. We should pray for safety and protection for all.
From Fox News. Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake reacted Sunday to her campaign headquarters receiving “suspicious” items in the mail, vowing to track down the person responsible.
Lake’s staffers were reportedly exposed to a white powdery substance found in packages sent to her office.
While speaking with reporters after a campaign event in Queen Creek, Arizona, Sunday evening, Lake was asked about the packages and the health of the staffers who were exposed.
“I have been so busy campaigning. This happened. I was not in the office. One of our wonderful staffers, a couple of them, were actually exposed,” Lake said. “And so far they’re doing OK. We’re monitoring them, and we want to make sure that everything’s OK.” …
“But listen, we’re in dangerous times,” she said. “This is not the first time we’ve been threatened. I’ve been threatened many times. Our tires have been slashed. We’ve had screws drilled into our tires so that our tires would blow out while we’re on the road.” …
This comes as the latest instance of reported crimes targeting lawmakers, political candidates and their families in recent months.
New York GOP Rep. and gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin was attacked at a campaign event in July by a man wielding a sharp object … and Arizona Democrat gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs’ campaign headquarters in Phoenix was broken into last week.
Lake and Hobbs are facing off in the race for Arizona governor on Tuesday. …
