    Game on: Conservative, pro-life, pro-gun Kelly Tshibaka challenging Murkowski for U.S. Senate

    By AlaskaWatchman.com

    Kelly Tshibaka will challenge Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s 20-year grip on her U.S. Senate seat.

    Tshibaka announced her candidacy March 29 with a campaign video clearly laying out her pro-life, pro-family and pro-Second Amendment views.

    The former commissioner for the Alaska Dept. of Administration is stepping down from her job to defend Alaska women from domestic violence and sexual assault and to fight for Alaska’s states’ rights when it comes to developing natural resources.

    She makes no bones about being a conservative and she said her faith in God is the foundation of her life.

    “The most important relationship to me is my relationship to God,” she said in her introductory video. “I won’t back down when critics attack me for it, or all those other values that we Alaskans hold dear. I’m a conservative – pro-life, pro-Second Amendment and America first, always.”

    Tshibaka’s personal Facebook page includes a Dec. 29 post in which she defends Second Amendment rights, an issue which has gained national attention with President Biden seeking to advance a number of gun-control measures while Democrats control the U.S. House and Senate.

    “If you take away law-abiding people’s guns, they are powerless against the weaponized government … and the path to tyranny is thus paved,” she stated. “I’m a proud member of the NRA. I believe government is accountable to the People.”

    Tshibaka is married to Niki Tshibaka who serves as assistant commissioner for Alaska’s education department. The couple has five children.

    Tshibaka’s campaign site states that she was born and raised in Alaska, and said she is running to “ensure Alaska remains a great place to raise our families and where the next generation of Alaskans can rise and prosper beyond those who came before them.”

    Tshibaka offers a stark alternative to Murkowski, who has been rejected as a candidate by Alaska’s Republican Party for her opposition to constitutionally conservative and pro-life judges, her vote against repealing Obama Care, her vote to convict former President Trump in his impeachment trial, her vote to allow gender confused males to compete in women’s sports, and her support for Deb Haaland as Secretary of the Interior despite her outspoken opposition to resource development on public lands in Alaska.

    Murkowski is also a staunch supporter of abortion and increasingly breaks with the Republican Party on this and many other hot-button social issues. She is up for re-election in 2022.

    1. Lisa is not a republican, never has been, never will be. She has no moral compass, she blows with the wind if it will keep her in power.

    2. The challenge will be to overcome all of the fraud in the election process. The fraud that brought Ballot Measure 2 into passage. The fraud used by the NEA and union thugs and the Soros and Clinton foundations that smear and lie and project onto her what they themselves are doing, as was done to Trump. The fraud of the dictator Xi interference in the media process for her election. The good news is that our awesome President will help. May the Lord protect her and her family from threats and bribes as she enters the challenges of the swamp.

    3. Wondeful to see someone run who truly is a Republican and stands up for what is best for AK and for our people and our children.

      • Some of you GqP Alaskans are incredibly ignorant. I’d add stupid but that would be overstating your competence. Good luck against the majority of this country that is neither.

    4. UNTIL COMMUNIST CHINESE DOMINION VOTING MACHINES ARE MET AND SMASHED HEAD ON… UNTIL THEN NO ONE QUALIFIES TO RUN FOR WE THE PEOPLE ,,,, TALK ALL DAY ABOUT HOW YOU LOVE GOD AND HATE ABORTION AND THE ABOMINATION OF MEN SAYING THEY ARE WOMEN, BUT UNTIL YOU STAND UP FOR THE GUARANTEE OF ELECTION INTEGRITY AND CALL OUT FOR THE ARRESTS OF THOSE WHO IMPLEMENTED THE VILE DOMINION SYSTEM YOU JUST PISSIN IN THE WIND…… A CANDIDATE MUST PROVE OUR SACRED VOTE IS THE UTMOST MOST PRECIOUS THING FOREMOST. THINK PEOPLE IF THE MACHINES CAN FRACTIONALIZE AND SWITCH OUR DECISIONS THEN IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT WE DO, OR WHOM WE BACK. PUT UP OR SHUT UP IF YOU ARE RUNNING FOR OFFICE!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOW!!!!

    5. Unapologetically pro-life? Won’t back down from her strong Christian beliefs? Spent her career seeking out and exposing government corruption? Checks the “woke” box with a racially diverse family? Born and raised in AK? Who can stop this woman? I’m 100% ready to see her run against, and defeat poser Murkowski and finally give Alaska some representation that makes us all proud!

    6. Yes I’m voting for Kelly
      I can smell the slime of Lisa crawling out from under here rock. Stand your ground against this loser Lisa

    7. WAKE THE HELL UP!!!!@!@!! A BROUGHT BACKTO LIFE TED STEVENS WOULD LOSE TO LISA AS LONG AS THE SATANIC GLOBALISTS CONTROL THE VOTE BY OWNING THE DOMINION MACHINES THAT COUNT OUR VOTES!!!!!!! WHAT DONT YOU SLOW PURRING AVOIDERS OF REALITY GET??????? THIS GAL MAY BE ALL YOU SAY BUT WITH YOUR HEADS BURIED IN THE SAND YOU WILL EXPOSE YOUR BUTT AND VOTE TO BE STOLEN AND MOLESTED,,,,, DEMAND DOMINION BE DESTROYED AND PAPER BALLOTS AND THUMBS DIPPED IN INK WELLS TO STOP THEE FRAUD LIKE WHAT WAS DONE IN IRAQ OR WE ARE DOOMED TO BE STEPPED ON FOR OUR APATHY AND IGNORANCE. DEMAND ARRESTS OF THOSE WHO IMPLEMENTED DOMINION NOW FOR THEIR TREASON OR THIS NATION DIES.

      • John you can take dominion to court if you have the evidence to back up these claims of yours or buy an Alaska watchman t shirt and find justice your own way

        No one cares about your comments here
        People only respond to action

        Joel might help you

    8. A populist candidate versus the squishy RINO’s we have now.
      Let’s go!
      People respond to candidates that have strong, principled beliefs.
      Lisa is a radical marxist – she has been parading as something she’s not for too long – time for her to go.

    9. I met Lisa and her husband a couple of years ago. She is a great speaker. She is passionate about many issues I care about. I was happy to hear this news. Murkowski will likely be more careful how she votes knowing that she has a strong conservative challenger. If Lisa wins, I have a Senator with a more compatible value system. With ranked choice voting the danger of splitting the conservative vote and ending up with a democrat that doesn’t share my values is reduced.

    10. I could never understand how Alaskans can elect the left-of-Lenin Lisa Murkowski as a GOP Senator. It is conceivable in a leftist declining state like California or New York. What’s the point of electing someone like Murkowski? You might as well vote for a Communist aka a Democrat.

    11. She’s everything that Murkowski is not, nor apparently ever has been. I’ll vote for her, maybe campaign for her.

    12. Question for Kelly: what are your thoughts on the dispensibility of the republic form of government that has happened in District 21 in Anchorage? It used to be a matter to disclose to the Secret Service to defend our form of government. Since President Trump is not at the forefront any longer what can Senators do about those brazenly destroying our local form of representative government in isolated, stupid but attractive to globalists Anchorage, Alaska? WHO WOULD YOU REPRESENT?

    13. Preach it John!!! I am 100% in agreement with you.. people need to rally in this state. We are in trouble in Anchorage as well , with two favored GOP runners for Mayor. Straight to a GOP split and right into the lap of the same ole hyper liberal candidate!! Someone needs to get out of the running so all the GOP votes can stand strong and win for Anchorage..get the word out for all to vote for the same candidate or we are in trouble!

    14. Meh, can we find a Rep Candidate who hasn’t been BUREAUCRAT her entire adult life! Worked in the Obama Admin……why do I smell a RINO in conservative clothing?

      • Great points, Mongo. I can’t find myself getting giddy in the least over her resume which reeks of another swamp beast. Lisa needs to go but we can do much better. Paging Mike Shower, Chris Kurka, Ben Carpenter…

    15. None of you are “in trouble”

      You’re being taught to live in fear cause you’re glued to the internet and conspiracies and rage and fear inducing articles written by Joel

      Your lives won’t change this year – in the next 5 years – or the next ten years

      You live in a state that’s primarily white

      So you don’t even have to be scared of “others”

      • Why do you hate white people and imagine that productive folks shouldn’t resent paying the way for deadbeats of all colors and bloated government, Alberto? What’s wrong with you?

        • I don’t hate white people.
          I don’t hate people.

          You keep reading Alaska watchman and you’ll only come away fearful or angry

          That’s how they make money

          Think about that when you watch or read “news”

          And google my name

      • He sounds like a racist troll looking to gain attention. That’s all and since were replying to his remarks he sure is getting the attention he’s been looking for. And the fact that he stated our life isn’t going to change within the next 5-10 years is just foolish. I can definitely see societal changes within the last 5-10 years and these aren’t the good changes that have built America into this great multicultural/multiracial welcoming country that it is. Racial rhetoric is a big money making machine and as long as there’s folks willing to fall for it then the racial divide will never truly go away in America.

        • What are the societal changes that have happened in the last 5 years ?

          I am not a racist
          That doesn’t make sense
          But I’m willing to listen to what the changes are that have happened

    16. Wants to be a Public Servant/Politican and not willing to share her background, age, other than spouse and children, no personal information! No go! Must have skeletons in her closet! What is her background other than a Harvard graduate and serving as a commissioner for Dumbleavy? What has she done in the past for Alaskans? Sounds like a first time politican to me. No experience! Sorry she doesn’t have my vote.
