'People could be killed!' Arizona Senator Mark Kelly tears into Kari Lake for telling suppor


Sen. Mark Kelly warned against rhetoric used by his Republican competitor Kari lake after she told voters to 'strap on a Glock' to prepare for the 2024 election.

The Arizona Democrat called his competitor's rhetoric 'dangerous' and said Lake's words 'could result in people getting hurt or killed.'

Kelly is married to former Rep. Gabby Giffords, who survived an assassination attempt at a campaign event in 2011 but was shot in the head and has been left with life-long injuries.

'Kari Lake's never been elected to anything,' Kelly said. 'I don't expect her ever to be elected to anything but when you're a candidate for the United States Senate you need to be careful with your words.'

Lake, who is running for Arizona Senate for outgoing Sen. Kyrsten Sinema's seat, told a crowd to 'strap on a Glock' while speaking last month at a Republican dinner in Mohave County with law enforcement and veterans.

She told the audience it is going to be a 'crazy run' the next six months up to the November elections.

'They're going to come after us with everything. That's why the next six months is going to be intense,' Lake said.
