According to an April 13 article by Roll Call, Sen. Lisa Murkowski is still undecided on whether to run for a fourth full term in the U.S. Senate.
Murkowski told Capitol reporters that she will make up her mind “when I make it.”
In the meantime, however, Murkowski said she is “doing everything that a good incumbent does in terms of preserving my options, visiting with Alaskans, spending a lot of time, as much time on the ground as I can, and raising money.”
She’s also picked up the endorsement of the Senate Leadership Fund Super PAC.

Winning reelection, however, won’t come without a fight. Alaska’s Republican Party has vowed to run a candidate against Murkowski for what it sees as her betrayal of conservative and Republican values.
Former President Donald Trump has also pledged to do everything in his power to oust Murkowski who voted to convict him during the impeachment hearing earlier this year. Add to this the fact that a formidable conservative challenger has emerged in Kelly Tshibaka.
The former state commissioner of Administration, Tshibaka defines herself as pro-life, pro-liberty and pro-America first. An April Cygnal poll shows here with a 33.6% to 18.8% favorability rating over Murkowski.
When asked by reporters on April 13 as to whether she had any thoughts on Tshibaka, Murkowski quipped, “Not really.”
