Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski is the type of Republican the GOP no longer needs.
Republicans need people who are ready to fight, not go along to get along with the Democrats.
Trump encouraged the idea of a challenger for Murkowski and now she has one.
The Daily Wire reports:
Senator Lisa Murkowski Draws Republican Primary Challenger
Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), one of the seven Republican senators who voted to convict former President Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial, has a GOP challenger for the 2022 Senate race.
Kelly Tshibaka, the former Alaska Department of Administration commissioner, announced Monday that she will challenge Murkowski in a 2022 primary election, becoming the first Republican candidate to declare their intentions to become the next U.S. senator from Alaska.
Tshibaka stepped down as commissioner to join the race, and in a press release Monday, her campaign accused Murkowski of enabling President Joe Biden and “his radical agenda to end drilling and kill Alaska jobs.” The campaign also accused Murkowski of voting against “common sense judges,” remarks that bring to mind Murkowski’s unwillingness to vote to confirm then-judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court back in 2018.
The Tshibaka campaign also hit Murkowski for her decision to convict Trump for incitement of insurrection during his second impeachment trial, a decision the campaign suggests was one of the many ways Murkowski has worked against Alaskan interests as senator.
This should get interesting very fast.
