  • Lindsey Graham and Lisa Murkowski Give Free Pass to Controversial Judicial Nominee

    10/22/2021 1:26:09 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 25 replies ^ | 10/22/21 | Ed Whelan
    Senator Dianne Feinstein was absent from the Senate yesterday, so Senate Republicans had the votes to defeat the cloture motion on controversial Second Circuit nominee Myrna Perez, director of the left-wing Brennan Center for Justice. Had Republicans stuck together, they would have defeated the motion by a vote of 50 to 49. Instead, Senators Lindsey Graham and Lisa Murkowski voted for cloture, giving Perez a 51-48 margin and paving the way for her confirmation. I’m reliably informed that Graham has not voted against cloture or against final confirmation of a single Biden judicial nominee. Indeed, Graham’s vote in committee yesterday...
  • Key senators eye the exits ahead of 2022 midterms: 'It's a six-year commitment'

    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,...

    Republican Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) have joined a group of Senate Democrats in asking President Joe Biden to rapidly expand refugee resettlement from Afghanistan to the United States. In a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Cassidy, Murkowski, and Senate Democrats asked the Biden administration to open a new “humanitarian parole” program for potentially hundreds of thousands of Afghans who otherwise would not be eligible for Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs).

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) is leading her challengers in Alaska’s Senate race, according to an Alaska Survey Research poll released this week. In a four-person ranked-choice voting (RCV) setup, Murkowski leads her potential challengers, as conservative Republican candidate Kelly Tshibaka fares the best, falling nine points behind, garnering 27 percent to the incumbent’s 36 percent: The second round of the survey, which does not include Joe Miller — who famously defeated Murkowski in Alaska’s GOP Senate primary in 2010, only to lose to Murkowski following her successful write-in campaign — showed Tshibaka edging out Murkowski 40 percent to 39 percent....

    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

    07/26/2021 2:04:45 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 22 replies ^ | 7/26/21 | Liz Ruskin
    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...

    President Joe Biden said Thursday he would not sign a bipartisan infrastructure deal with moderate Republican senators without an additional partisan funding package for entitlements. “I control that. If they don’t come, I’m not signing it. Real simple,” Biden said, when reporters asked how he planned to get both measures through Congress at the same time.

    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 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...
  • Alaska Senate candidate slams Lisa Murkowski for 'enabling' Biden's 'radical environmental extremism agenda'

    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...

    In spite of pleas from Sen. Lisa Murkowski and others, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Coast Guard still say that fishing personnel must wear masks aboard boats.For many Alaska fishermen, having a mask over their nose and mouth during fishing operations is akin to being waterboarded, as wet, slimy masks are difficult to breathe through, create visual barriers, and prevent communication.[CUT]National Fisherman provided its readers with a list of activities in which wearing a mask would create a safety hazard for onboard workers:On-deck tasks which necessitate removing a mask to perform duties due to safety hazards...

    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...

    Senator Lisa Murkowski (R- AK) told CNN’s Manu Raju on Tuesday that former President Donald Trump was a “key individual” when asked if he should testify before a commission investigating the January 6 Capitol riots. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said Tuesday he does not support the legislation to create a bipartisan commission to investigate the events of January 6 because the scope is too narrow

    Vice President Kamala Harris was on hand in case she was needed for a possible 50-50 tie on the procedural vote for Gupta’s nomination Wednesday, but Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a moderate Republican from Alaska, broke with her Republican colleagues and joined all Democratic senators to advance the nomination 51-49. The Senate will be voting on her final confirmation Wednesday afternoon. Murkowski explained her support for Gupta on the Senate floor, saying she was troubled by some of Gupta’s statements but decided to back her confirmation following a lengthy conversation with the nominee. “I asked her point blank, ‘Why do you...
  • Murkowski Primary Challenger Off to an Impressive Fundraising Start

    On March 29, as Reagan reported, Alaska Commissioner of Administration Kelly Tshibaka resigned her position to announce her run as a primary challenger to Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). In the three remaining days of the reporting period, she managed to raise $214,844, according to Must Read Alaska. In contrast, Sen. Murkowski had raised $380,687 for the entire quarter, with $1,353,204 cash on hand. It's also noteworthy where the funds came from: Noticeable in Tshibaka’s fundraising report is that the vast majority of her funds came from Alaskans. Tshibaka got more small-dollar donors in her three days than Murkowski got in...
