Former Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake is now taking aim at Florida Gov. Ron. DeSantis (R) despite praising him for being a prototype for her political party.

Lake's remarks came on Thursday, February 16 when she shared an article published by the Gateway Pundit which featured a headline that read: “The Kiss of Death – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Endorsed by George Soros (VIDEO).”

According to Mediaite, Soros has not publicly endorsed DeSantis, but predicted that he would likely end up clinching the Republican presidential nomination over Trump.

“He is likely to be the Republican nominee,” said Soros, who described DeSantis as “shrewd, ruthless and ambitious.”Lake's latest remarks are a distinct change in tone considering her previous admiration for the popular Republican leader.

Per the news outlet: "Previously, Lake had not only generously speculated on DeSantis’s anatomy, but observed that 'Every GOP Governor in the country looks to DeSantis for leadership on how to run a state.' At one point during her doomed campaign, she argued that the fact that DeSantis had endorsed her told voters 'everything' that they needed to know."

Lake's attack leveled at DeSantis comes just months after she lost the Arizona gubernatorial election to her Democratic opponent Katie Hobbs.

The New York Times has obtained a copy of the Dec. 6, 2020, memo written by Donald Trump-supporting lawyer Kenneth Chesebro that federal prosecutors have cited as a key piece of evidence in their case against Trump and, likely, against some of of his so-far-unindicted co-conspirators.
