Senator Murkowski Officially Announces Re-election Bid

Another anti-Trump Republican has entered the ring.

Senator Murkowski (R-AK) officially announced she will be running for re-election in 2022.

Trump will surely jump into this race with both feet now that Murkowski has officially announced.

Game On

Murkowski fought Trump regularly when he was in office.

She was also among those that pushed for the impeachment of Trump.

Murkowski, in announcing her re-election bid, stated, “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.

“Since my first election, I committed to work 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.

“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.”

Trump has already backed former Alaska commissioner of administration Kelly Tshibaka as a primary challenger against Murkowski.

In fact, several former Trump staffers are advising her campaign.

This will not be an easy battle, however, as Murkowski has the full backing of the establishment, with the National Republican Senatorial Committee already getting behind Murkowski.

Even so, this will not be an easy fight for Murkowski, as she was trailing Tshibaka in early polling.

This will be another key race for Trump that, if he manages to knock Murkowski off, it will show just how much pull he will have moving forward into the 2024 cycle.
