GOP Candidate's Office Receives Mysterious 'White Powder' Ahead of Election Day

As our nation continues to devolve into a politically-fraught nightmare of bipartisan bickering and hyperbole-charged violence, the 2022 midterm elections have become the unfortunate battlefield du jour for the radical left’s most unhinged characters.

The latest horrible affront to the traditional decorum of the electoral process has affected one of the nation’s most tawdry gubernatorial races, and marks a rather significant escalation in tactics.

Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake reacted Sunday to her campaign headquarters receiving “suspicious” items in the mail, vowing to track down the person responsible.

Lake’s staffers were reportedly exposed to a white powdery substance found in packages sent to her office.

While speaking with reporters after a campaign event in Queen Creek, Arizona, Sunday evening, Lake was asked about the packages and the health of the staffers who were exposed.

“I have been so busy campaigning. This happened. I was not in the office. One of our wonderful staffers, a couple of them, were actually exposed,” Lake said. “And so far they’re doing OK. We’re monitoring them, and we want to make sure that everything’s OK.”

Lake seemed to understand this new lay of the land quite well.

The former TV news anchor explained that this was not the first instance in which her campaign has been targeted.

“But listen, we’re in dangerous times,” she said. “This is not the first time we’ve been threatened. I’ve been threatened many times. Our tires have been slashed. We’ve had screws drilled into our tires so that our tires would blow out while we’re on the road. We are living in dangerous times, and that’s why we need to elect somebody who’s strong and a fighter and not a coward. We’ll get to the bottom of this. I really don’t want to get too far ahead of it.”

Lake has been aligning herself with former President Donald Trump, making her a high priority target for the liberal left in recent weeks.
