Kari Lake Beats Desantis And Haley To Win The Cpac Vice Presidential Election- During this past weekend’s Conservative Action Political Conference (CPAC), a straw poll for the Republican vice presidential nominee was won by former Arizona GOP governor candidate Kari Lake.
With 20% of the vote, Lake defeated former UN ambassador Nikki Haley and Florida governor Ron DeSantis in a field of 28 contenders. Haley, who declared her candidature for the White House last month, garnered 10% of the vote, while DeSantis received 14%.
Lake, also a featured speaker at CPAC’s Ronald Reagan Dinner this past weekend, has challenged the election results in court because she won’t accept that she lost the governor’s race last November.
In response to the CPAC straw poll results, her campaign’s official Twitter account said she couldn’t fill the position.
We’re honored, but regrettably, our legal staff has determined that she cannot hold the office of governor and vice president simultaneously, according to the constitution.

Mike Pompeo, a former secretary of state, and Vivek Ramaswamy, a businessman who has announced his candidature for president, each garnered 6% of the vote. Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) and ex-Vice President Mike Pence were the only other Republicans on the ballot, and they all received less than 5% of the vote.
With 62 percent of the vote, former President Trump easily won the CPAC straw poll for the president. DeSantis came in second with 20 percent of the vote.
