Former Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake challenged reporters from the New York Times and Washington Post to "milk a bull" on Friday and "see how that goes."
The dare came as Lake milked a cow during a visit to the Iowa State Fair.

“There are only two genders and they know that in Iowa,” she said.
“I challenge the New York Times reporter and the Washington Post reporter to try to milk a cow and then try to milk a bull and see how that goes," she added.
New: Kari Lake is preparing to announce she is running for Senate in Arizona.
The seat is currently held by Kyrsten Sinema and the Democratic candidate to support is @RubenGallego.

"Former Arizona GOP gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake is staffing up for a Senate campaign in anticipation of an October launch, making Arizona ground zero to replay — and relitigate — GOP losses in the last two elections," Axio reported last week.
"A potential three-way battle, with Sen. Kyrsten Sinema running as an independent, will expose deep divisions in both parties on whether to appeal to their bases or independents in a critical 2024 battleground state," it added.
Lake was defeated in a close battle for governor in a race she has still not conceded. She pursued several lawsuits following the election in an effort to overturn the election results.
If she does run for the Senate, her run will be among the most controversial, bringing attention to a three-way battle that would include Sinema and a Democratic candidate likely dividing the left's votes and making a Republican win more likely.
Democrats are likely to include Rep. Ruben Gallago as their candidate in an effort to oust Sinema after she left the party to become an independent.
The next election is sure to be noteworthy in Arizona, with Lake already drawing attention through her "milk a bull" comment.
