Kari Lake, the Republican running for governor in Arizona, recently turned the tables on a journalist who was trying to ask her a gotcha question on abortion.
Some Republicans shy away from this topic or are caught off guard by questions on the topic.
Kari Lake showed how Republicans can and should handle this situation and she pulled it off effortlessly.
Kari Lake Flips the Script on Reporter Attempting Abortion ‘Gotcha’
As the mainstream media keeps up its fealty to the Biden White House and Democrats, they continue to ask GOP midterm candidates about their views on abortion while ignoring the radical abortion policies preferred by Democrats along with the economic and crime crises caused by their other failed policies.
Such was the case over the weekend when Kari Lake, the GOP nominee for governor in Arizona, was asked about her position on the issue of abortion during remarks at one of the RNC’s Hispanic Community Centers in the Grand Canyon State.
“Abortion is effectively banned in the state right now…is that something you support?” came the question from a reporter covering the event as Lake embarks on an “ask me anything” tour of Arizona. What the reporter was looking for was a soundbite of Lake saying she supported “banning” abortion.
But Lake was, seemingly, ready and waiting for a question like this as Democrat candidates and their friends in the mainstream media take Biden’s lead in trying to make the midterms a referendum on abortion — a strategy that is not going well toward making abortion a leading concern for midterm voters according to recent polls.
“I support saving as many lives as possible,” Lake replied, denying the reporter’s desired soundbite. “And what I really want to know, and I’ve been waiting, I tune into you guys all the time, I want to know where Katie Hobbs stands — I never hear you guys ask her that.”

That’s how it’s done.
This woman is probably going to be the next governor of Arizona.
