All signs point to a good midterm season for Republicans. Thanks to Joe Biden and the left’s failures, Americans are eager to send Democrats a message. Polling suggests Republicans will flip the House. And it won’t take much in the Senate, with its 50/50 split, for the GOP to come out on top. But the key is for Republicans to show Americans they will not support the left’s radical policies and put citizens first.
But there are rats on the ship. A handful of anti-Trump RINOs infests the House and Senate. Most notably Sens. Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski all voted to confirm Biden’s radical activist to the Supreme Court. Romney and Collins think they are safe because they won’t be up for re-election in years. But Murkowski should be getting very nervous, right about now.
Trump-backed candidate Kelly Tshibaka has officially filed to challenge GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski for the Senate seat she’s held since 2002.
Former President Trump has repeatedly said he would campaign against Murkowski, who voted in favor of his second impeachment and called on him to resign following the Jan. 6 Capitol breach.
“Lisa Murkowski has forgotten us because she cares more about being popular with her friends in Washington, D.C,” Tshibaka, a former commissioner of the Alaska Department of Administration, said after filing Monday with the state Division of Elections in Anchorage,
She specifically pointed to Murkowski’s vote last week in favor of confirming Biden nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court…

Alaska native Kelly Tshibaka will run against incumbent Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski for the GOP primary. Tshibaka received the backing of Donald Trump, who long battled with RINOs like Murkowski while president. With that kind of support, Tshibaka has already enjoyed a bump in polling against the sitting senator.
Murkowski might be looking at an uphill battle for re-election. Alaska is a tried and true conservative state. Much like Wyoming, they do not like it that their representative turned against the party in 2020 and 2021, and 2022. Liz Cheney faced censure by the Wyoming Republican Party for turning on them. Murkowski might face a stronger backlash in the upcoming race.
Trump plans to help Tshibaka make it all the way to D.C. In addition to an official endorsement, he is promising to go to Alaska this year and campaign for the candidate. A Trump rally in support of a Republican is no small thing. It might propel Tshibaka so far ahead, that no rival candidate can catch her.
Not even old Murkowski.
