AZ-SEN: US Republican Kari Lake tells supporters: 'Strap on a Glock' as election nears [View all]

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kari Lake, an ardent supporter of former president Donald Trump, urged supporters in Arizona to "strap on a Glock" pistol as they prepare for what she called an intense six months leading up to the Nov. 5 elections.

"We are going to put on the armor of God. Then maybe strap on a Glock," Lake told a cheering audience at an Arizona rally on Sunday.

"You can put one (Glock) here," she said, touching her right hip. "And one in the back, or one in the front, whatever you guys decide."

Her campaign did not respond to queries seeking comment.
