Alaska GOP Censures Sen. Murkowski for Trump Impeachment Vote


The Alaska Republican Party censured Sen. Lisa Murkowski, vowing to “recruit” a primary challenger to unseat her in next year’s election. The party noted Murkowski’s vote to convict Trump during the second impeachment trial as well as a number of other votes the Senator cast its statement.

Fox News reports:

The Alaska Republican Party on Saturday passed a resolution censuring Murkowski for her impeachment trial vote, and for several other votes she took that have angered Republicans in the state.

Among those votes, according to the resolution, are her opposition to repealing the Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare, voting “present” rather than in support of the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and her support this month for the confirmation of Rep. Deb Haaland as interior secretary. Murkowski and Alaska’s other senator – Dan Sullivan – were among four Senate Republicans who voted to confirm Haaland this week as the first Native American to serve as a Cabinet secretary.

The resolution states that Murkowski’s “repeatedly spoken critically of President Trump throughout his term in office” and that “the Alaska Republican Party hereby separates itself from Sen. Murkowski’s conviction vote of President Trump.”

Besides censuring Murkowski – a move that other state Republican parties have taken against House and Senate lawmakers from their states who voted to impeach or convict Trump – the resolution also states that “the party hereby will recruit a Republican primary challenger to oppose and prohibit Sen. Murkowski from being a candidate in any Republican primary to the extent legally permissible.”

Multiple Republican senators who voted to convict Trump during his second impeachment trial have faced censures from their state party. Trump also vowed to support Republican contenders aiming to unseat the RINOs in upcoming elections during his speech at CPAC.

The same applies in AZ. Sin did the last minute win with polls opened no one but the counter knew about in 2018 and our rino governor did not challenge it. Test run for 2020 if there ever was one. We have to get rid of Sin and the other smarmy Mark the liar.

You are 100% right about those two snakes in the grass. Both of them are as slimy and anti-American as a desert rattler. Too bad they don’t meet one of those in our AZ deserts, face to fang! Bet that would be one contest neither of them would win!

Exaltly what I was thinking. She was extremely popular in AK, so maybe a senatorial run would restore confidence in that state.

You are preaching to the choir!! Sarah is 100% America First, and that is what the first requirement for all politicians should be. Murkowski has been closer to a Democrat for too long for Republicans to ever support her again. Besides, she has been there overlong already.

I hope the “majority” is true”. I live in California and KNOW I do NOT have ANY representation in either the State or Federal government. All elected officials from my area are in direct opposition to my beliefs (land of the free and home of the brave) including both Senators.

Always remember to check the person’s background before nominating them for office. Murkowski used to be a Democrat. How many other RINOS have that background or how have they voted on important issues. Remind those running for office they are to serve the American people -not the special interest groups.

A good start, but Alaska conservatives must go to the polls and remove her from office. She is neither a conservative nor a Republican.

Totally agree, REMOVE ALL RINOS, but a bigger problem is that the Democratic Party no longer exists ! It’s being run by the DSA which is the Democratic Socialists of America, and the DSA is a fringe offshoot of the American Communist Party. If your old enough you have heard of the words of Lenin who said “they will call themselves Socialists, but they’re Communists “

Murkowski has been a thorn in the GOP’s side since she took office. She is NO REPUBLICAN BUT A “REPUB IN DRAG” and has no right to ever call herself a Conservative. Her head is severely “messed up” and she needs to be kicked to the curb by the GOP.

Find a Very Strong GOP candidate to unseat Murkowski. They need to be genuine, a Patriot, a Christian…and know Alaska inside and out! Find that person and promote them strongly to the Alaska populace.
Anyone is better than Murkowski…anyone!

GETTING RID OF ALL RINOs across this nation is the SECOND Step in
TAKING BACK THIS COUNTRY….The First Step is/was, of course, electing anyone that is NOT a lifelong politician.

The Republican Party, if they are to survive, must deny the RINO’s the priviledge of running under the Republican Flag. Throw them out of the party and don’t let them put their sorry names on a Republican Ballot.

“NO CLUE” who she represents in Alaska, but for her , “I’d say” GAME OVER. You have a lot of natural resources up there & she’s done EVERYTHNG to STOP “progress” in Alaska. Alaska has GOT to “initiate” a LOT of LAWS regarding drilling, “people living off the grid”, burning wood for heat,& “destroying” pristine land & helping the Inuits “who” have been there forever. WHO DOES “SHE” REPRESENT??

The only way to get the Republican Party to get rid of the RINO’s, is to stop all donations to the RNC and to the various State Republican Committees. Don’t give them a penny.

Donate direct to the candidates of your choice, not the those of the RNC.

The other states that have RINO traitors must do the same thing as Alaska. Alienate Murkowski and the RINO’s in their states. Let’s go for Romney, Collins, Sasse and several others. Mitch McConnell is no better.

I will NOT give another penny to the RNC. I suggest you do the same. Let them feel the money crunch. Screw them. No more money from me.

I will contribute to President Trump direct and will vote for true conservatives.

This country is on the road to total destruction. Wake up America!!

If you voted for Biden, you.
should be boiling in in your own oil.

Enjoy yourselves New York, California, Illinois, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.

I stopped a few months ago, John, when I felt they weren’t being supportive of President Trump! I’ll save my money to donate to individual candidates who support the things I believe in!
