Former President Donald Trump reiterated on March 6 that he plans to visit Alaska next year to help unseat Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the 2022 midterm elections.

In the statement issued to POLITICO Trump noted that he would not endorse Murkowski “under any circumstances,” and said she was a “failed candidate from the great State of Alaska.”

“She represents her state badly and her country even worse,” Trump added. “I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be — in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator.”

This is not the first time Trump has mentioned he would actively work to replace Murkowski. In June he vowed to back any candidate who ran against her.

“Few people know where they’ll be in two years from now, but I do, in the Great State of Alaska (which I love) campaigning against Senator Lisa Murkowski,” Trump Tweeted last summer. “Get any candidate ready, good or bad, I don’t care, I’m endorsing. If you have a pulse, I’m with you!”

Murkowski was one of just seven Republicans who broke ranks and voted with all the Democrats in a failed effort to convict Trump during his impeachment trial last month.

Three days before the impeachment vote, she was asked if she had any concerns that Trump, who received more than 74 million votes on election day, might run again for the presidency again if the Senate did not convict him and thus bar him from future office.

“Frankly, I don’t see how after the American public sees the whole story laid out here – not just in one snippet on this day and another on that – but this whole scenario that has been laid out before us, I just, I don’t see how Donald Trump could be reelected to the presidency again,” she said. “I just don’t see that.”

Trump won 53% of the Alaska vote in the 2020 election with nearly 190,000 Alaskans voting to reelect him. In 2016, Murkowski retained her Senate seat by winning 44% of the vote with 138,149 Alaskans voting for her.

    Anyone know where I can pick up a “Oust Murkowski” yard sign?

  • Linda says:

    The sad thing is that her hate for Trump..since 2015…has superceded any good sense..especially for Alaska! I’ve often wondered if she was abused at any time in her life…or she is being paid BIG money by foreign entities. Does she have a stake in another country also?

  • Michael C Coons says:

    We must get a single, fully vetted person to run against her! What with the ranked voting, we cannot afford multitudes running. I am not trusting of the ARP leadership on this and it is a must that a vast majority of the Republican Districts do what the ARP Chair is fearful of doing! Sadly, I understand is is not able to be ousted but we sure can put a hell of a lot of pressure on him.
    I have a person I would support and am trying to get to run. I will not say at this point however whom that person is.

  • Patrick Dalton says:

    Any word from Joe? He had enough votes before. Senator Lora Reinbold would solid as well. I think there is possibly too much China influence here? Does anyone suspect this motive behind the rail extension into Canada? Good for the economy, but better to have trade agreements with allies, like Japan or South Korea, not CCP conexes crossing our state with who knows what inside.

    I know that there is a Group Against Lisa Murkowski with conservatives that already exists. She cheated getting into office by replacing her father before his term was over. She does not use her married name so she would ride on his reputation, and then she cheated as a write in with her name up at the polling sites so that it would be spelled correctly. No one in charge of the election objected to that unlawful act. She has no Truth in her and no sense of right and wrong. She has lied about her positions. She has no interest in us the Alaskan citizens. Her APOC show her funded by the NEA. The Alaska Republican party is a shameful embarrassment and the lack of discipline has caused her to work on ruining America through her bad decisions such as Obamacare. The NEA is the Trojan Horse in American Education and is the destruction of Western (Christian) Civilization. We are in Fairbanks but will want to help the Great Former President Trump

    “The beatings will continue until morale improves” is what that other blogger is referring to.

    I place a few great comments. Where are they?

  • G Aleution says:

    she was recently bragging about delivering our alaskan native bodies at death to cdc to find plastics if I understood her correctly.
    Not our idea, babe. I don’t consent. Do what we say or INSTRUCT our elected servants to do, ok?
