Republican candidate for Arizona governor Kari Lake joked that she’s not “suicidal” after becoming a target of Hillary Clinton’s ire in recent days.

“But I was a little concerned today — I’m going to be honest — when I saw Hillary Clinton badmouthing me. And she looked angry and actually scared. Completely unrelated, I want you to know, just in case you’re wondering, I’m in perfect health, the breaks on my car are in good shape, and I’m not suicidal,” Lake said during an appearance on Fox News Thursday. “And we’re going to win this thing.”

Clinton, a former secretary of state for the Obama administration, criticized Lake earlier in the week over comments the Arizona gubernatorial candidate made about an illegal immigrant’s attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband.

At a Monday campaign event, Lake said, “Nancy Pelosi, well, she’s got protection when she’s in D.C. — apparently her house doesn’t have a lot of protection.”

Clinton took issue with Lake’s comments on Thursday while she was in New York campaigning for Governor Kathy Hochul. Hochul is in a tight race against Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY). Hochul arose to the governorship after former Governor Andrew Cuomo stepped down.

“An intruder hits an 82-year-old man in the head with a hammer, who happens to be married to the speaker of the House, and the Republicans joke about it. The woman running for governor in Arizona jokes about it,” Clinton said at a campaign event. “Now why would any sensible person want to give power to somebody who thinks it’s funny that a person gets assaulted in his own home? So you know, they don’t care about keeping you safe. They want to keep you scared, so that you can’t think straight.”

Vice President Kamala Harris also campaigned for Hochul alongside Clinton, suggesting that Democrats feel pressured to defend the deep blue state.
