On Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast today, Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka said she doesn’t support Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell returning as Senate majority leader, when Republicans take back the Senate in 2022, which they are widely predicted to do.
“Mitch McConnell has repeatedly bailed out Joe Biden, giving him gifts of Senate votes, which are the only things keeping the Biden administration on life support. As an example, after rescuing Biden with the last debt ceiling increase, McConnell said he would never do it again. But he just did, and he had Lisa Murkowski’s help in doing so. The actions of McConnell and Murkowski on the debt ceiling show that it’s the political elites pitted against real Americans. When I defeat Murkowski and become Alaska’s next U.S. Senator, I will not support Mitch McConnell as leader. It’s time for new, America First leadership in the Senate,” she said.

Tshibaka is running against Sen. Lisa Murkowski as a Republican who will appear on the new open primary ballot. She has the endorsement of the Alaska Republican Party and former President Donald J. Trump. The Alaska Republican Party asked Murkowski to not run as a Republican, although she remains registered as one and has the support of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, chaired by Sen. Rick Scott of Florida.
