    John Thune, the No. 2 Senate Republican, is struggling with a crucial decision: Whether to ask South Dakota voters for six more years in office. Chuck Grassley, the longest-serving Senate Republican, says Iowa voters are increasingly urging him to run again, and he's now considering moving up his much-anticipated announcement about whether to extend his 40 years of service in the chamber. Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont -- a Senate veteran of 46 years who is third in line of presidential succession -- says he'll make a decision "after I go snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing." GOP Sen. Ron Johnson,...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin hinted at a potential Senate bid in the 2022 midterm elections to challenge Sen. Lisa Murkowski, the Alaska Republican who was one of a handful of GOP senators who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump after he left office.

    Sarah Palin, the former vice presidential candidate and ex-governor of Alaska, has hinted at a return to politics. Palin was asked if she would look at running for the U.S. Senate as she spoke at a conference on July 22 that was co-sponsored by the Harvest International Ministry religious movement, Right Wing Watch reported. In a video shared on the ministry's Instagram page, Palin said sitting on stage that "America was dedicated to God" and she took a swipe at "a rapid shift to the left" she felt was taking place in the country. Palin told Ahn, that it would...
  • Alaska GOP gives Murkowski a thumbs down. Nationally, Republicans still give her campaign cash

    Former President Donald Trump calls Sen. Lisa Murkowski “disloyal.” State party leaders want her to quit identifying herself as a Republican candidate. But Murkowski’s campaign finance reports show outside Alaska, she still has a comfortable spot in the Republican fold. Murkowski’s most recent report shows a pair of $5,000 contributions this spring from Bluegrass PAC. That’s a political action committee affiliated with the Senate’s top Republican, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Murkowski has crossed Republicans on a host of issues, and McConnell had another Republican candidate in Alaska he could have supported: Kelly Tshibaka. Tshibaka is pitching herself as the rightful...

    But that’s the data we have and the pros are paying attention. “To me, the conventional wisdom that Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R) is favored just b/c she won a write-in campaign back in 2010 and Alaska has a new top-four system has never been that compelling,” tweeted Dave Wasserman in response to the Change Research numbers. “AK’s a red state, and GOP voters now view her as a Dem.” Another explained the difference between Murkowski and the recently reelected Susan Collins well: “Maine Republicans know Collins is about the most conservative Senator they can get from their state. Alaska Republicans...

    Usually, an Alaska Senate race in what is more than likely to be a GOP favored year wouldn’t make much noise. While it has trended towards democrats, it hasn’t done so to the point where the state is competitive. At least at the federal level. But 2022’s senate race will bring multiple storylines. Part of it will be Alaska’s new electoral system of a top four blanket primary runoff for the general. The other part is the status of incumbent Lisa Murkowski. While some, like Elections Daily Editor-in-chief Eric Cunningham, initially felt that Murkowski would be fine, that momentum is...

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said his optimism on a bipartisan infrastructure bill was “short-lived” following President Joe Biden’s remarks that he would consider vetoing the bill if it doesn’t include a sweeping reconciliation package. His comments came shortly after Biden endorsed the bipartisan deal to spend $1.2 trillion over eight years before stating that “If only one comes to me, this is the only one that comes to me, I’m not signing it“ McConnell accused Biden of “caving” to the far left following the bipartisan breakthrough and offering mixed messaging on the matter.

    President Joe Biden on Thursday announced a bipartisan infrastructure deal with moderate senate Republicans and Democrats after meeting with them briefly at the White House. “We had a really good meeting and to answer your direct question, we have a deal,” Biden announced, standing with the group of senators Biden met briefly with the group to seal his support for the deal after the White House announced a framework deal for a bipartisan agreement Wednesday evening. The president celebrated the bipartisan nature of the deal, even though he said it was not all of the proposed spending that he asked...

    Senator Joe Manchin is all but assuring that the Democratic Party’s attempt to continue the debacle of the 2020 presidential election in perpetuity will be brought to a halt, at least the federal level. The Democratic Senator is delivering a backbreaking blow to the Democrats’ hope of passing H.R. 1, which would effectively outlaw strict voter IDs and mandate that elections be carried out via absentee ballots for weeks, if not months before elections. “I believe that partisan voting legislation will destroy the already weakening binds of our democracy, and for that reason, I will vote against the For the...
  • LISA MURKOWSKI GETS SERVED A GREAT BIG HELPING OF ‘UNITY’ FROM JOE BIDEN

    06/02/2021 1:45:12 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 46 replies
    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) decided to dispense with actually doing her job of advising and consenting on Joe Biden’s various nominees, electing instead to vote for all manner of crazy and unqualified people in the name of bipartisan unity. She also recently voted for the so-called “January 6th commission,” which would have been solely another painful democrat colonoscopy of President Trump. This from redstate.com. Well, RINOism is not working out very well for the soon-to-be-retired Senator from the state of Alaska as Murkowski got served a large helping of said unity from Joe Biden yesterday. It came in the form...

    KELLY TSHIBAKA: Lisa Murkowski has been complicit in enabling Joe Biden’s radical environmental extremism agenda. She was opposed to Donald Trump in 2016, opposed to him in 2020, was an obstacle to him through his entire administration—never mind that he was one of the best presidents we’ve had for Alaska and our energy policy. But, on top of that, she’s helping Joe Biden. She was the deciding vote that let Deb Haaland through the energy committee and it’s under Secretary Haaland and the Department of Interior that’s leading this suspension of our leases that have been lawfully executed. That vote...

    Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski has torn into her colleagues who say they want to oppose the Capitol riot commission during a chaotic night in the chamber. 'We just can't pretend that nothing bad happened, or that people just got too excitable. Something bad happened. And it's important to lay that out,' Murkowski told reporters after a vote on the proposed commission was delayed on Thursday night after the Senate grinded to a halt. Overnight chaos in the Senate prevented the bill establishing a 9/11-style commission to investigate the January 6 Capitol attack from getting a vote to block a Republican-led...

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and a group of Republican conservatives have struck a deal to allow a Friday vote on a bill setting up a bipartisan Jan. 6 commission, which will let senators leave Washington for the Memorial Day recess early Friday afternoon. The deal, which was approved by the entire Senate after being hotlined, will postpone the final procedural votes and the final up-or-down vote on a bill to improve U.S. competitiveness with China until next month. But it means that Republicans won’t be able to delay consideration of the China bill into the holiday weekend, which...

    Senate Republicans on Friday blocked an independent, bipartisan commission to study the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.Eager to put the events of that day and former President Trump’s role in it behind them, Republicans blasted the commission proposal as a partisan attempt by Democrats to keep both in the news during next year’s pivotal midterm elections.The bill fell in the first legislative filibuster of the year as it failed to get the 60 votes needed to advance. The vote was 54 to 35 to move the bill forward, with a handful of Republicans breaking ranks — Sens. Mitt...

    “Murkowski tells me she’s going to support the bipartisan January 6 commission bill,” a Huffington Post reporter tweeted. Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA) are two other Republicans who have indicated sympathy for creating a commission to distract from the failed polices of the Biden administration. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has suggested she opposes the commission in its current form and is demanding changes. It is worth noting Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) is a “no” vote on the commission. He was one of the Senators who voted to convict former President Trump during his impeachment trial. Moderate Sen....

Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) on Tuesday became the second Senate Republican to say she will support a House-passed bill to establish a bipartisan commission on the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, which could come to the floor for a vote this week. “I’m going to support it,” Murkowski told reporters when asked about whether she will vote for the bill that passed with 35 Republican votes in the House last week.

    As expected, President Joe Biden signed legislation that sets the stage for large ships to cruise this summer to Alaska. The bill – sponsored by Alaska’s legislators and easily passed by both the Senate and House – would allow foreign-flagged cruise ships to sail to and around Alaska from the U.S. without stopping at a foreign port, as required by the Passenger Vessel Services Act of 1886. The waiver is good until Canada lifts its ban on large cruise ships, which currently is set to expire on Feb. 28, 2022. In anticipation of Biden’s signing, numerous big-ship cruise lines already...

    So, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy stated pretty openly that at a Republican House Conference being held this week he will allow Liz Cheney to be replaced by Rep. Elise Stefanik. Now don’t get me wrong. I’ve heard nothing but bad things about Stefanik. She’s just another Congress critter that cares nothing about me or you. But she knows which side her bread is buttered on and that Donald Trump is the one handing out the butter. So, she’ll keep her mouth shut and not help the Democrats when they’re going after our side. To me, the only thing that...
