PHOENIX — Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake continued her affront of John McCain during the Conservative Political Action Conference summit in Dallas on Saturday.

Lake won last Tuesday’s GOP primary, setting up a November showdown with Democrat Katie Hobbs to be the state’s next governor.

“We drove a stake through the heart of the McCain machine,” Lake said.

Lake has bashed McCain in the months leading up to the primary, drawing the ire of his daughter, Meghan.

McCain responded to Lake’s remark on Twitter, calling it one way to win the majority voting block of independents in a general election.

“I know she thinks she’s governor already, but you have to win over more people than just CPAC MAGA Neanderthals to actually win a general,” McCain said.

Lake’s remarks came days after she called for the Republican Party to put aside differences and work toward the general election.

“We’re all big boys and big girls and we need to step forward and say that was a … grueling fight and now we come together,” Lake told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s The Mike Broomhead Show on Friday.
