Trump-Backed Candidate May Beat Out Same Party Incumbent

Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski is in danger of losing her Senate seat after decades of work to a challenger of her own party. FiveThirtyEight forecasts Kelly C. Tshibaka as the winning candidate, over Murkowski. After supporting the impeachment of President Trump, Murkowski has found herself in a good bit of controversy over it. Now, bringing in Tshibaka, the party may get a Trump approved candidate.

Murkowski has faced criticism within the party for voting to impeach President Trump but also not doing enough to fight against President Biden’s agenda. She has been considered a swing voter since her appointment to the senate in 2002, and is ranked as one of the most liberal senate Republicans according to a 2017 GovTrack analysis. While Tshibaka, who previously served as the commissioner for the Alaska Department of Administration, comes with high recommendations from President Trump.

Both Tshibaka and Murkowski will appear on the ballot next month. This being due to Alaska’s new 2020 ballot measure including ranked-choice voting in state elections. They will face Democratic candidate Patricia Chesbro, though the Republican party has a 99% chance of winning next month’s Alaska senate election.

Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins are no better than the Democrats because they side with them much of the time. I hope Murkowski goes down and Collins next.

Here the Evil Witch of the West’s strategy. she is campaigning for a enormous number of 2nd Choice Votes. So even if Tshibaka gets 45% of the 1st Place Choices, everything is recalculated taking into account 2nd and 3rd place choices and based on weighting the choices. So “Ms. No 2.; Kranky the Christmas Pooh (as she will hence be known) can win this thing. We need the Democrats to say vote Kelly Buzz in the first line and then Pat Chesbro in the second line, then have all Republicans vote Chesbro or Buzz on line 2. That would $crevv Lisa dead and create such a backlash against the current than everyone not named for Murkowski for its abolition. There is no better strategy. Of course, Dems think of Lisa as their nominee. So a direct appeal to independents is our best hope is the only alternative.

Lisa, its time to become a true American patriot. You can do more for Alaska and the USA than you ever have before. All it takes is for you to lose your election. If this takes place the GOP will have a real Republican instead of a RINO. Thanks for doing your part America is counting on you.
