After voting to impeach President Trump for ‘inciting an insurrection,’ Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski (pictured below) sees that Republican voters aren’t very happy with her vote. Senator Murkowski was quoted as saying, “I want him out” during the impeachment.
President Trump spoke out recently to say he would not be endorsing Republican incumbent Murkowski:
“She represents the state badly and her county even worse. I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be…in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator.”
Senator Murkowski is a RINO in every sense of the word. Murkowski was appointed to the Senate in 2002 by Alaska Governor Frank Murkowski, her father, who had held the Senate seat since 1981. Since taking office, she’s been voting like a Democrat and was an especially outspoken critic of President Trump. The Alaska GOP even censured her after she voted to impeach President Trump for a second time.
Could Murkowski be toast? It sure looks like it! Murkowski challenger Kelly Tshibaka (pictured below) is killing Murkowski in the polls.
Murkowski’s challenger describes herself as a fighter:
‘I fought hard to be the first in my family to pursue a college degree and attend law school. I fought to expose waste, fraud, and abuse in government, and I’ll bring that same fight to the US Senate where I will always defend Alaska values.’
GOP polling firm Cygnal found that Murkowski’s challenger Kelly Tshibaka was leading in an all-party primary, taking 33.6 percent of the vote, compared to Murkowski’s 18.8 percent. Republicans have bailed on Murkowski and are clearly turning their support to Tshibaka, Alaska’s Commissioner of Administration.
