Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, announced on Friday her plans to fight to keep her office during the 2022 midterms, despite the furious grass roots anger against her for voting to impeach President Trump over Jan. 6.
That anger has birthed a viable primary candidate, backed by 45, named Kelly Tshibaka, who previously served as Alaska’s commissioner of administration.
Murkowski’s vote, among five total Republican Senators who chose to betray President Trump earlier this year, led her own state’s Republican State Central Committee to formally endorse Tshibaka, who has nicknamed Sen. Murkowski “Biden’s Chief Enabling Officer,” and reminds Alaskans of their legendary Gov. Sarah Palin.
Tshibaka, pronounced “cha-baka,” is a follower of Jesus Christ, who has planted churches and has taught publicly about speaking in tongues.
