Breaking: Murkowski Will Fight Trump

U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski

( – Breaking Now: In a move that heralds a donnybrook of a political fight leading up to the 2022 congressional mid-term elections next year, United States Senator Lisa Murkowski, a Republican who represents Alaska, just announced that she would defy former President Donald J. Trump and run for reelection.

Trump has warned Murkowski that he will put his political weight against her and fight her with everything he can muster.

In an attempt to force Murkowski from even considering a reelection bid to hold her seat, Trump has already endorsed a Republican opponent, Kelly Tshibaka, who the conservative Washington Times describes as an aggressive “Harvard-trained attorney, who spent 18 years in Washington in the Justice Department’s Inspector General’s Office.”

But, Murkowski has decided to go ahead and enter the battle even with Trump determined to rally his supporters in Alaska to come out in force and beat Murkowski.

And, there’s another twist to the race. Another Trump enemy, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), has entered the fray.

According to the Times, “the Senate Leadership Fund, associated with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, endorsed Ms. Murkowski, establishing another battle between both party leaders.”
