Taking On Trump’s Bid Against Her; Murkowski Announces Her Candidature For 2022 Senate Re-election

Senator Lisa Murkowski, who has been with the Republican Party for a long time as a moderate, recently announced her candidacy in a campaign. She said that “My heart is, and always has been, in Alaska, and that’s why I am proud to announce my campaign for reelection to the US Senate in 2022.”

Trump has made it obvious as well that she is on her GOP’s target list. She has previously worked across party lines, to bring developmental agreements to light. In February when only 7 Republicans voted for the conviction of President Trump to be impeached, Lisa was one of them. Undeterred by what may come her way, she is the only one of the 7 who is standing up for the upcoming mid-term elections next year.

“Since my first election, I committed to working tirelessly on your behalf to expand opportunities for our people, support Alaska’s job-creating industries and help give voice to hardworking families and business owners,” Murkowski told the people.

She added that “I pledged to be Alaska, always. I’m still committed to those values and meeting the challenges Alaskans face today by building on my record of working together to secure historic victories that lift Alaskan communities.”

The bitterness between the former President and Murkowski made the former state that he shall personally come and campaign against her. He also worked towards the endorsement of former Alaskan Commissioner of Administration, Kelly Tshibaka.

Tshibaka is backed by a solid team of campaign leaders, who previously worked on Trump’s Presidential Election in 2020. Murkowski can also be seen pulling out her big guns, as National Republican Senatorial Committee backs her candidacy; the committee is the re-election arm of the Senate GOP. Senate GOP leader Sen. Mitch McConnell and the team have pledged alliance to Murkowski.
