Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), rejected an offer Wednesday by Republican Arizona Senate candidate Kari Lake to meet amid a feud between the two.

“NO PEACE, BITCH!” McCain said in a post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, in response to a post earlier Wednesday by Lake inviting her to meet.

In Lake’s invitation post, she said she values McCain’s “family” and “the passion you have for our state.”

“I’d love nothing more than to buy you a beer, a coffee or lunch and pick your brain about how we can work together to strengthen our state,” Lake wrote in the post. “My team is sending you my contact info — if you’re willing to meet, it would mean a lot to me.”

McCain’s Wednesday response to Lake’s invitation followed a Tuesday post in which McCain said Lake is “trying to walk back her continued attacks on my Dad (& family) and all of his loyal supporters after telling them to ‘get the hell out.’”

“Guess she realized she can’t become a Senator without us,” McCain continued. “No peace, bitch. We see you for who you are – and are repulsed by it.”

At a campaign event in 2022 while running for governor of the Grand Canyon State, Lake had told “McCain Republicans” to “get the hell out.”

In a Monday interview on “Outspoken with Bruce and Gaydos” on KTAR News 92.3 FM, Lake said, the comment was “said in jest. And I think that if John McCain, who had a great sense of humor, would have heard it, he would have laughed.”

“I want everyone’s vote, whether you are a McCain … if you call yourself a McCain Republican, if you call yourself a middle-of-the-road Republican, a Trump Republican, an America First Republican, I want your vote, and guess what? I want independents’ votes as well, and I want disaffected Democrats — and there’s a lot of them who are waking up and saying, ‘This is not working out,’” she said.
