When it comes to confirming federal judges, appointees and nominees for the U.S. Supreme Court, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka has pledged to only vote for those who embrace a constitutionalist approach to law.
On Oct. 26, the conservative Republican Tshibaka unveiled the principles she would employ when it comes to supporting constitutionalist presidential nominees and opposing what she calls “radical, leftists.”
Unlike incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Tshibaka said she would oppose “extreme leftists” who have enacted policies that have devastated Alaska’s economy and independence.
“Incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski voted for more than 90 percent of Biden’s cabinet nominees, including environmental extremist Deb Haaland as Interior Secretary, and supported Ketanji Brown Jackson for the U.S. Supreme Court,” Tshibaka’s statement noted. “Murkowski has also voted to confirm leftist nominees throughout the judicial system, including the judge who blocked the job-creating Willow oil and gas project and the life-saving King Cove Road. Murkowski also supported ‘Defund the Police’ activist Vanita Gupta to become the Department of Justice official in charge of grants to local police departments.”

Tshibaka said these types of appointees are responsible for enacting a harmful agenda that cripples Alaska’s resource industries and thousands of jobs that support families.
“Lisa Murkowski votes to approve almost all of them because she cares more about her membership in the D.C. club than she does about Alaska,” Tshibaka stated. “When I’m in the Senate, I will do everything I can to stop radical nominees from imposing rules from the Lower-48 that purposely strangle us.”
Tshibaka made the following pledges regarding constitutionalist nominees:
— “I will only support constitutionalist judicial nominees, those who interpret the law as it was written and who do not legislate from the bench.”
— “I will always oppose radical, leftist Cabinet, department, and judicial nominees.”
— “I will protect and defend our constitutional rights, fighting against executive branch agencies that infringe on our freedoms.”
