Trump announced today that he’ll be spending a lot of time in Alaska to rally support against Lisa Murkowski as she campaigns for reelection in 2022:
DC EXAMINER – Former President Donald Trump will not be supporting Alaska GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s bid for a fourth term.
The former president announced on Saturday that he’ll be traveling to the Last Frontier State to campaign against Murkowski ahead of her 2022 reelection bid, according to Politico.
“I will not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski. She represents her state badly and her country even worse,” he 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 also voted to confirm President Biden’s nominee for secretary of the interior, Deb Haaland, despite her opposition to fossil fuel development during her time as a member of the House, which earned the ire of many in the GOP.
Trump criticized Murkowski’s vote to confirm Haaland, saying it was “yet another example of Murkowski not standing up for Alaska.”
Wow what an epic statement from Trump. I truly hope he is successful at toppling her. Joe Miller tried back in 2010, even won the primary and she still came roaring back in a freaking write-in campaign.
Murkowski is the worst of all the RINOS in the Senate and it’s time for her reign to end. Alaska can do so much better.
But despite all of this, Murkowski still has the support of McConnell:
Despite Trump’s rebuke of the Alaska senator, she still has the support of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
“Yeah, absolutely, we support Sen. Murkowski,” he said. “We support all of our Republican incumbents. She’s in very strong shape in her home state of Alaska. There’s nobody that’s gonna come close to beating Lisa Murkowski when she runs for reelection next year.
I know McConnell has a rule where he supports all of his incumbents but she’s literally the WORST Republican in the chamber, and that’s saying something considering she stands beside Mitt Romney.
Regarding Mitchy’s statement about no one coming close to beating Murkowski, we’ll see about that. I’m sure Team Trump is already looking for someone who can primary Murkowski and win. And we wish him Godspeed on that.
