Although Sen. Lisa Murkowski wishes it were not so, an election is the people’s performance review of the incumbent representing them. In her case, she’s grown increasingly liberal over the past 21 years so that Alaskans can barely recognize her as the senator whose father appointed her to this seat two decades ago.
We can choose a new direction and elect a senator who will stand with Alaska, families who are being crushed, and workers who are suffering. Or we can choose a senator who has been standing with Joe Biden, confirming his radical environmentalist nominees, and funding her own campaign nearly entirely with Lower 48 dark money.
Murkowski has been enabling the Biden agenda at every step, even when it directly harmed Alaska. She cast the tie-breaking vote to advance the nomination of Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, even though she knew Haaland was an environmental extremist who would wage war on Alaska workers, resource industries and economy.
Murkowski has voted for more than 90% of Biden’s senior administration nominees and 100% of his judges.
Murkowski also approved “Defund the Police” activist Vanita Gupta, now the Department of Justice official in charge of local law enforcement grants. Murkowski also championed the confirmation of the federal judge who killed the Willow oil and natural gas project and the life-saving King Cove Road.
Murkowski says one thing in Alaska, while doing exactly the opposite in D.C. For instance, she ran ads claiming she supported the 2nd Amendment and warned that Biden “WANTS TO TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY” in all capital letters. Meanwhile, she voted for Biden’s gun control and red flag laws.
Murkowski recently announced that she is pulling for Nancy Pelosi in Alaska’s House race by pledging support to the only candidate who would Pelosi as speaker. And Murkowski has been the beneficiary of millions of dollars in D.C. insider dark money ads full of lies about me.
Murkowski has donned the D.C. establishment jersey of Biden, Pelosi, and McConnell, while leaving Alaska with no goalie in net.
Clearly, it’s time for a change. When I’m in the Senate, I will fight to protect jobs and the families and workers who depend on them. My parents were able to pull themselves into the middle class thanks to a job in the oil industry, and I understand what these opportunities mean for our future and our children.
I will only support constitutionalist nominees who will protect our rights and resource development. And I’m proud to have the NRA’s highest rating.
I will advocate for more access to mental health resources and affordable housing across the state, and I will support parents’ rights to be involved in their children’s education.
When I’m the next senator from Alaska, I won’t be bought or bullied by Washington, D.C.; I will fight for Alaska, and that will never change.
