Kari Lake is running for Arizona Senator in the 2024 election

Arizona Senate candidate Kari Lake has broken her silence on whether she would run for the Vice Presidency if Donald Trump were to win the Republican nomination.

In the latest polls leading up to the New Hampshire ballot, the former President remains in the lead with 52 per cent of the vote and Ron DeSantis is in second place with 21 per cent.

After winning the ballot in Iowa, Trump told a New Hampshire rally: "You inherit the legacy of red-blooded New Hampshire patriots and you really are incredible patriots who lived by that immortal motto 'Live Free or Die'.

"We'll get it done without the dying part, we don't want the dying part."

Arizona candidate Kari Lake ran previously in 2022 with the endorsement of Donald Trump.

Lake has stood for "secure borders, energy independence, safe streets, education not indoctrination" and pushing back against Joe Biden's administration.

In a conversation with Nigel Farage, Lake told GB News what her goals for this year's election are.

Lake revealed: "I'm running for the United States Senate in Arizona. We have an incredible opportunity to take back some Senate seats.

"We have to have a Republican led United States Senate because when President Trump gets back in office, and I do believe he will, he's going to need to do his cabinet appointments through."

Lake continued: "President Trump will find it really tough to get his agenda passed.

"His agenda is going to be to put America first, and I'm going to help in any way that I can.

"I'm here helping campaign for him in the state that I grew up in Iowa. I love the people here, I love this place, and so I've told him use me any way you see fit. I will help however I can."

Farage quizzed Lake on whether her role in helping Donald Trump win the election will spur her on to run for Vice Presidency.

Lake dodged the question, responding: "I want to help him in the Senate. I really think that he's going to need help in the Senate.

"We have a chance to bring back that Senate majority. So I'm going to do whatever I can to help my country.

"I have two children and I worry deeply about their future. They can't even fathom living the American dream. And so we have to get that back."
