BREAKING: Alaska GOP endorses challenger to Murkowski

The Alaska Republican Party has endorsed the challenger to incumbent Senator Lisa Murkowski.

Moments ago, Tshibaka announced the endorsement and wrote “I am honored to be Endorsed by the Alaska Republican Party! In the Senate, I will always fight for our Conservative values.”

Tshibaka said in a statement she is “grateful and thrilled to have the strong support of the Alaska Republican Party.

“We all share a unified goal: to promote the principles upon which our country and state were founded,” she continued.

“I have pledged that I will be true to our shared, conservative Alaska ideals and be a senator upon whom they can depend to make every decision based on what is best for our great state,” she added.

Last month, Tshibaka announced “I am honored and grateful to have the support of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.”

“Please join our team today! We’ll do this together!” she added.

In his endorsement, Trump calls Murkowski “bad for Alaska” and writes “Tshibaka is the candidate who can beat Murkowski!”
