Senator Murkowski has been awful. She is not a supporter of President Trump, and she is not even a conservative. Recently she voted in favor of impeaching President Trump, despite the fact that he is a private citizen. This was a vote in favor of blocking President Trump from running for POTUS in 2024. Not acceptable. RINOs must be primaried if the Republican Party is to remain relevant.
Alaska’s Republican Party goes further than other state GOPs who censured senators for voting to convict Trump, vowing to “recruit a Republican Party challenger to oppose and prohibit Senator Murkowski from being a candidate in any Republican primary.” https://t.co/UuQoMQ3UKL

Alaska GOP Puts Lisa Murkowski On Notice, Censures Her For Trump Vote And Vows To Recruit Primary Challenger
By MAGA Conservatives, March 16, 2021
U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) just got some bad news from the Alaska GOP. She was one of seven Republicans who voted to convict former President Trump in his impeachment trial.
The Alaska Republican Party passed a resolution censuring Lisa Murkowski over the weekend and said they would recruit a primary challenger to her in the next election. She runs again in 2022.
Kris Warren, the author of the resolution said, “There’s a number of issues that the party has had with Sen. Murkowski for the last several years which really culminated in the conviction vote of former President Trump.”
“We’re looking for somebody else to be our U.S. Senator in 2022, and somebody who will be more in line with the Republican philosophy,” added Warren.
Trump said earlier, “I will not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski. She represents her state badly and her country even worse.”
“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,” Trump added.
From The Hill:
Warren said he was upset with Murkowski over past votes to preserve the Affordable Care Act and against an amendment to the most recent coronavirus relief package that would have banned trans women from competing in sports.
He took issue with her decision to vote present on the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and her support for Rep. Deb Haaland (D-N.M.), President Biden’s choice to lead the Interior Department.
But the resolution focused most on Murkowski’s relationship with the former president.“She’s repeatedly spoken out against President Trump over the years in spite of all the great accomplishments he had that helped the country and certainly helped Alaska,” Warren said.
Murkowski’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. She has not said whether she will seek a fourth full term, though her campaign account had $1 million in the bank at the end of 2020.
Warren declined to speculate on potential challengers who might take on the three-term Republican, who took office in 2002 to succeed her father after he became governor.
Former Gov. Sarah Palin (R) has issued vague threats about running herself, though she is not seen as a likely candidate a dozen years after she left the governor’s mansion in the middle of her first term.
