Nigel Farage has called Kari Lake the “future of the Republican Party” amid the ongoing US mid-term polls. Ms Lake is the Republican candidate for Arizona and Mr Farage believes that she is going to win the governorship in the state.
The former Brexit party leader was in conversation with Dan Wootton on GB news discussing the US mid terms and the possibility of of Donald Trump announcing his re-run for the Presidential elections 2024.
Mr Farage said: “I think she is going to win the governorship in Arizona.
“And I really wouldn’t be surprised if next Tuesday she wasn’t at Mar-a-Lago too and wasn’t announced as Trump’s vice presidential running mate.
“That is my guess as to what’s going to happen.”
A former TV news anchor, Ms Lake has been touted as an “election denier” who has questioned the result of the 2020 presidential vote, yet she remains one of the sensations of the midterm elections.
Sky news reported that Ms Lake built her profile and fine-tuned her communication skills through television, anchoring Arizona’s local news broadcasts for 22 years.
Speaking about her personality, Mr Farage said: “She brings energy. Good looks shouldn’t matter but they actually do make a difference.
“She is very family-oriented, Christian-oriented, very traditional , a believer in the Constitution.

Ms Lake is contesting against Democrat Katie Hobbs.
Opinion polls suggest Ms Lake is just ahead of her Democrat opponent with a margin of error.
Ms Hobbs has attracted criticism for refusing to debate her Republican rival. She has framed the fight not about policy but democracy.
She had said: “This race for governor is not about Democrats or Republicans.
“It is a choice between sanity and chaos.”
