According to a recent poll Alaska Department of Administration Commissioner Kelly Tshibaka is leading republican Senator Lisa Murkowski in a heavily anticipated primary challenge. Last week Tshibaka announced she would seek Murkowski’s Senate seat.
Current polling shows Tshibaka is ahead of Murkowski in an all-party primary, beating the incumbent by almost 15 points.
(Via Daily Mail) – […] Trump took aim at Murkowski in March, telling Politico he would ‘not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski.’
‘She represents the state badly and her county even worse,’ Trump said. ‘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.’
Murkowski was one of seven GOP senators who voted to convict Trump of inciting the January 6 insurrection during his second impeachment trial.
He has publicly vowed to make them all pay, including listing all of their names during his first big political speech since leaving office, at the Conservative Political Action Conference, last month.
Tshibaka, whose run was first reported by Fox News, said she was running to represent a ‘new generation of Alaska conservatives.’
Her stances include being tough on immigration, pro-Second Amendment and anti-abortion. (more)
One note of caution, the last time Murkowski was primaried in 2010 she lost to republican Joe Miller. Murkowski would not give in and ran in the general election as a write-in candidate where Democrats could vote to support her. Murkowski is a slippery Decepticon and one of Mitch McConnell’s caucus.
