Former President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday night that he will be running for president in 2024. The 45th president also filed his paperwork with the Federal Election Commission, ending months of rumors and speculation that he would make a third run for the White House.

“My fellow citizens, America’s comeback starts right now. In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States,” Trump told a cheering crowd at Mar-a-Lago, adding that he would “fight like no one has ever fought before.”

“Our country could not take four more years,” he said. “They can only take so much. I am running because I believe the world has not yet seen the true glory of what this nation can be. We have not reached that pinnacle, believe it or not.”

Soon after Trump’s announcement, Arizona Republican Kari Lake took to Twitter to give Trump her full support.

“President Trump announces his ‘24 Presidential run. He has my complete and total endorsement!” Lake tweeted.

Earlier this week, Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs was projected as the winner over Lake in Arizona’s race for governor.

“Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs has defeated Republican Kari Lake in Arizona’s race for governor, NBC News projected Monday. Hobbs’ victory is key for Democrats in a presidential battleground — though the closeness of the contest left the result up in the air for nearly a week,” NBC News reported.

“A record number of early ballots were dropped off on Election Day in Maricopa County, officials said, which had to be processed in a more time-intensive manner that includes signature verification. Maricopa County, the state’s most populous, said Sunday that it estimated that its count was 94 percent complete after receiving a historic 290,000 of those early ballots on Election Day,” the outlet added.

Soon after the race was called, Lake responded on Twitter by saying: “Arizonans know BS when they see it.”

Lake spoke with reporters last week and wasted little time setting the record straight when asked about potentially being picked to be Donald Trump’s 2024 running mate.

Lake spoke with reporters last week and wasted little time setting the record straight when asked about potentially being picked to be Donald Trump’s 2024 running mate.

“I’m going to do two terms. I’m going to be your worst frickin’ nightmare for 8 years, and we will reform the media as well. We are going to make you guys into journalists again. So, get ready. It’s going to be a fun 8 years.”

A reporter went on to ask Lake: “Just curious, your attorney had mentioned maybe a possible silver lining with the issues that you will be able to move about town and kind of shake hands and talk to some of the people in line. Could you elaborate on your plans later today.”

“We are going to encourage people to stay in line, we are going to vote and stay in line and the people of Arizona would walk over hot coals and they would walk over broken glass to vote today and I know that they can stand in line for a couple hours if they have to. I know they’ll stand in line for eight hours if they have to. And they will vote and my message to the people of Arizona is do not get out of line until you have cast your vote. Do not get out of line until you have cast your vote. Things are looking very good for us. They may be trying to slow a red tsunami but it’s coming, and we are going to take back Arizona and I know that people are out voting, take food, wear comfortable shoes, take some water and just stay in line, Arizona, and vote. Vote, vote, vote, we have to vote today,” Lake responded.

Earlier this month, Lake broke her silence after police responded to “suspicious” items that were mailed to her campaign headquarters over the weekend.

In response to questions from reporters, the former Phoenix-area newscaster said that some staffers were exposed to a white powdery substance before police and the FBI were summoned.
