Three more districts endorse Kelly Tshibaka for U.S. Senate

Three more Republican district organizations endorsed Kelly Tshibaka for U.S. Senate, including District 3 of North Pole, District 31 of Kenai Peninsula-Homer, and District 40, the most northern political district in the United States.

Tshibaka is running against incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski. The three districts bring the total number to 12 that have endorsed the Republican challenger. 37 of the 40 House districts have Republican organizations, which means nearly one third of the organized districts have now voted to support Murkowski’s challenger.

Tshibaka was in Fairbanks on Friday, and attended a meet-and-greet with interested people at the Red Lantern restaurant, where over 40 attended. She was spotted later at the Allen West-Gov. Mike Dunleavy event, a fundraiser for the Alaska Republican Party at the Event Center in Fairbanks.

The other districts that have endorsed Tshibaka are 8, 12, 13, 14, 15, 21, 23, 29, and 30.

Republicans meeting in Fairbanks on Saturday have been asked by two Republican women’s clubs to endorse Tshibaka at the state party level; Tshibaka herself has sent a letter requesting the endorsement.

In March, the party censured Sen. Lisa Murkowski for her various roles in opposing President Donald Trump, including Murkowski’s role in voting to convict him in the impeachment process after he had already left office.

Tshibaka has earned the endorsement of former President Donald Trump.

  1. Every day, if not every other day, it’s another announcement on another State District fully and completely endorsing Kelly T. It’s certainly got to be deeply concerning and frustrating for Daddy’s Little Princess and, becoming quite apparent to her (beyond the shadow of doubt) of her unpopularity and dislike within the AKGOP. For everything thing ‘she’ thinks she has accomplished, the only memorable moments will be her lack of duty and responsibility during the Kavanaugh hearings and her constant obstruction regarding Trump.
    In my opinion, it’s long overdue for a change, and Kelly T. represents the best change of hope for AK.

    • District 31 of Kenai Peninsula-Homer most definitely is on the Kenai Peninsula.
      Furthermore Tshibaka is certainly registered in Anchorage, Alaska.

        • A – to clarify, she is registered with the FEC, as is Murkowski. The filing deadline for Division of Elections is June, 2022, and neither are filed in that office. They do not file with APOC, as they are federal candidates. Thank you for your comments. – sd

  2. Lisa M’s days as an electable Republican would be over, were it not for the voter approved corruption of the electoral process. Jungle primary, and ranked choice general elections. Political parties are no longer relevant.

    If no strong Democrat runs and siphons votes from Lisa, she wins handily carrying the former D vote, and just enough former R to win handily. Kelly T only gets the strong R vote and assuredly loses.

    Loss of real party based primary elections is a weak and politically amorphous incumbent’s dream.

  3. Little Princess can go her own way with her unemployed house-husband. The Queen and I are kicking her out of the castle. We want Kelly T. to wear the crown and forgive us for nearly 42 years of our royal insanity.

  4. Kelly is self-promoting as a cost cutter. She claims to have been our budgetary watchdog at both the federal and state levels so check this out…
    All Departments and Agencies
    Kelly Tshibaka, Commissioner, Department of Administration April 30, 2020
    State Administrative Manual – Transmittal Number 97
    The following sections within the Alaska Administrative Manual are being revised with this transmittal
    memo effective May 1, 2020.
    AAM 60.380 – Employee Repayment of Moving Expenses. Removed language applicable to new
    State of Alaska employees, this section now applies to all employee moves.”
    Under her “cost cutting” regime the State of Alaska expanded the reimbursement of state employee moving expenses.
    Pretty sweet deal for government employees…they get to have the rest of us pay their expenses for moving.
    No surprise that Tshibaka would support this cost expanding idea though since her moving expenses to take the high level job offered by the Dunleavy Administration totaled almost $81,000…all paid for by Alaskans.
    Tshibaka can run around talking about her “Alaskan values” and how she was such a cost cutter but the facts show otherwise.
    So check out the referenced AAM 60.380 for an education in how state government lavishes your money on state employees.
    Then do a web search on her DMV privatization scheme that would have doubled your costs for DMV services…but only for rural Alaskans.
    Kelly probably has plenty of great ideas like that, ideas that hurt the common folk but that’s not her concern because she’s not really one of us.
    Here’s some quoted language out of the AAM:
    “ The State of Alaska will pay for certain moving expenses for employees and their immediate family. The definition of immediate family includes the following:
    • employee’s spouse or person cohabitating with the employee in a conjugal relationship that is not a legal marriage
    • children of the employee or the spouse whom are unmarried and under the age of 21 years or who, regardless of age, are physically or mentally incapable of self-support (“children” shall include biological child, stepchildren, adoptive children, grandchildren whom are legal dependents of the employee or spouse)
    • children under legal guardianship of the employee or spouse
    • dependent brothers and/or sisters whom are unmarried and under the age
    of 21 years or who, regardless of age, are physically or mentally
    incapable of self-support
    • dependent parents or parent-in-law
    • dependent grandparent
    The State of Alaska is really generous with your money but stop asking for that statutory PFD because money wasting BS like this is eating up our budget.
    Our gal Kelly had no trouble taking her slice of the moving expenses pie though.
    Trust her, though, when she brags about her financial conservatism.
