Trump-endorsed Kelly Tshibaka slammed Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) for being two-faced ahead of Tuesday’s Republican primary in Alaska.
Talk with host Matthew Boyle on Breitbart News Saturday, Tshibaka said Murkowski’s 21-year career was marred by lying to voters about his Senate voting record.
“She’s not telling us the truth. She says one thing here in Alaska and does the exact opposite in DC,” Tshibaka said. “She’ll talk about the drafting of the infrastructure bill with Bernie Sanders, but she won’t tell us that the radical extremists in the Biden administration are hoarding all these new regulations on us. [in the bill]. It drives the rate of inflation so high that we won’t see any additional funding, they have all these regulations and permits that we have a jump through that we hardly see any infrastructure.
Tshibaka continued to point the finger at Murkowski’s about-face policy. “It’s all about the Green New Deal. She ran ads just a few months ago saying she was a staunch defender of the Second Amendment as she colluded with Democrats and Joe Biden to vote for gun control and our gun rights. fire. That’s what’s costing her the NRA’s endorsement, and so now she’s dropped her reading with them, and I’d have the highest rating in the RA, we’re very much in favor of the second amendment and against the laws of the red flag for which she voted. ”
“She voted against Democrats’ efforts to codify Roe versus Wade,” Tshibaka continued. “She claims she doesn’t think there should be late-term abortions or taxpayer-funded abortions, but just a few weeks ago she was the one who introduced the abortion bill late, and she’s always voted to fund national abortion providers with taxpayer dollars. That’s the kind of thing she does all the time, and that’s why everyone across the state says, “It’s time for a change”.
Tshibaka then explained how Alaska’s electoral system favors Murkowski’s term. “In November what happens is everyone can come in and vote for their top candidate first – if you want you can vote for one replacement candidate or two replacement candidates or three – you rank therefore your second, third and fourth choice. If the candidate who comes first does not cross the 50% line – gets at least half of the votes in the election – then the fourth candidate drops out. Their second, third and fourth places are reallocated. The third candidate gives up, his second, third and fourth places are reallocated.
Tshibaka thinks she and Murkowski will definitely be in the final group in November before explaining Alaska’s political demographics. “Here is the data in Alaska. About 54% of Alaskans vote for the Republican candidate. President Trump has won by double digits in 2020, despite spending almost two to one by our Democratic nominee. Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-AK), our other Republican senator, won by 13 points. The Democratic candidate generally obtains between 38 and 40% of the votes.
Tshibaka’s primary election will take place on Tuesday, August 16.
