Kelly Tshibaka announces Trump has endorsed her run against Lisa Murkowski

Friday, Kelly 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.

Earlier in the day, former President Trump formally endorsed Tshibaka.

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

Trump also compliments Tshibaka as “MAGA all the way.”

According to Josh Dawsey of Wapo “Trump recently met with Kelly Tshibaka, per advisers, and endorsed her today against Sen. Lisa Murkowski. One adviser said Trump would have endorsed “anyone, and I mean anyone” against Murkowski. Is telling advisers he wants to fly to Alaska to campaign. Will see if it happens.”

Tshibaka announced her run in March.
