One of the leading pro-family and pro-life policy groups in Alaska has thrown its support behind Kelly Tshibaka in her campaign to unseat U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski in 2022.
Citing her “solid, conservative values,” Alaska Family Action issued its endorsement on Sept. 14.
“Kelly Tshibaka has the right fusion of solid, conservative values, along with the real-world experience to actually get things accomplished,” said Chris Brown, Board Chairman for Alaska Family Action. “Tshibaka will unapologetically defend Alaska and Alaskan values in Washington, D.C.”
AFA President Jim Minnery stated that Tshibaka offers a refreshing alternative to Murkowski and her left-wing voting record.
“More and more Alaskans are recognizing that Lisa Murkowski simply doesn’t represent our values on Capitol Hill,” Minnery said. “Murkowski is one of the few Republicans who voted to defend horrific late-term abortions, and she’s voted to send our taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood.”
Minnery said Murkowski’s voting record is disturbing to many Alaskans.

“Murkowski was the only Republican in the entire Senate who caved to leftist pressure and opposed the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” he said. “Yet at the same time, she’s happily voted to confirm some of President Biden’s most radical appointees to key positions. Murkowski was also one of just three Republicans to vote against repealing the disastrous Obamacare law. On issue after issue, Murkowski sides with left-wing special interest groups and against working Alaska families.”
AFA Board Chair Chris Brown applauded Tshibaka for her strong commitments to pro-family public policies. “For some politicians, issues like pro-life or religious freedom are just useful wedge issues that come up at election time, but are ignored the rest of the time,” Brown said. “In contrast, Kelly Tshibaka truly understands that our nation won’t be great unless vulnerable life is defended, religious liberty is protected, and families are strengthened. We’re very excited to endorse Kelly and urge all pro-family Alaskans to join forces and help her win this crucial race.”
