When Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake found out about Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney opposing her candidacy, she called it, "The biggest gift I ever received."
Cheney appeared in Austin, Texas at the Texas Tribune Festival. Cheney said, “I’m going to do everything I can to make sure Kari Lake is not elected.”
Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith followed up with the question, “Does that include campaigning for Democrats if that’s what it takes?”
“Yes,” Cheney replied.

Cheney characterized Lake as an “election denier” and “dangerous" during the interview.
For those with a short memory, Cheney lost her Wyoming primary by 35 points last month.
Lake, who happens to be a former anchor for Fox affiliate KSAZ-TV in Phoenix, is not shy in these types of situations.
During an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures," Fox News host Maria Bartiromo asked Lake what she thought about Cheney's comments about her.
“That might be the biggest, best gift I’ve ever received,” Lake replied with a smile.
“I mean, the people of Wyoming can’t stand her. I’m pretty much sure that the people of Arizona don’t like Liz Cheney,” she continued
“The new Republican Party is the party of ‘We the People’; it is no longer the party of warmongers, and so Liz Cheney probably should change her voter registration. Turns out she really is a Democrat after all,” Lake said.
