Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who has enabled President Joe Biden’s anti-Alaska agenda, has announced that she will be ranking Rep. Mary Peltola (D-AK) first in the November 8 election, meaning that she favors retaining Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.
Alaska Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka today issued the following statement:
“Lisa Murkowski will vote to send Nancy Pelosi another foot soldier to help push the radical, leftist agenda that is battering Alaska every single day. The only people who want Pelosi to be Speaker are those who like the Biden war on Alaska’s energy workers, high gas prices, runaway inflation, and the Lower 48 taking away Alaska’s freedoms and gun rights. This isn’t some principled position – Murkowski has clearly made a political calculation that her only chance to save herself is to go full Biden enabler.
“This is the same senator who warned everyone that dark money from the Lower 48 would try to buy this Senate seat, yet is accepting millions from Mitch McConnell to lie about me, the official, endorsed candidate of the Alaska Republican Party. With her support of Pelosi and Biden, and her support from McConnell, Lisa Murkowski has shown that she’s wearing the jersey of the D.C. establishment, rather than the home colors of Alaska.
“It’s a sad way to end a career. Murkowski has surrounded herself with the Washington, D.C. elites, but when I'm in the Senate, I won't be bought, bullied, or bamboozled by Biden, Pelosi, and McConnell. I'll fight for Alaska, and that will never change."
