Unanimous: District 12 Republicans endorse Tshibaka for Senate, along with second Mat-Su women’s club

Alaska Republican Party District 12 has endorsed Kelly Tshibaka for U.S. Senate. The vote was taken Thursday night and was unanimous, according to people who attended the district meeting. District 12 encompasses Chugiak, Eklutna, Peters Creek, Butte, and Fairview areas of the Mat-Su Valley.

Also endorsing Tshibaka this past week was the Mat-Su Valley Republican Women’s Club; it was also an unanimous vote from the entire club, which is the oldest Republican Women’s Club in Alaska, established in 1947.

The Alaska Republican Party at the State Central Committee quarterly meeting in March voted to censure Sen. Lisa Murkowski and vowed to find a replacement for her as its preferred choice for U.S. Senate. Murkowski has held the seat since 2002. Tshibaka announced her intent to run for the seat on March 29.

  1. We love Kelly and her family. Finally,… opportunity to end the Murkowski stranglehold on Alaska.

  2. If you see enough of her maybe in 14 months you’ll actually swallow that BS about being local.

    Her and some beta male were polluting the entry to the Highland Games handing out the same paperwork that littered the rest rooms.

  3. How can a district endorse a “candidate” who has not filed with the Alaska Division of Elections or APOC? Something wrong with this …

    • Art, APOC actually does not cover this position because it is a federal office. Rather, it is the FEC.

      The last day to register with the Division of Elections as a political party candidate for the Primary Election is on or before 5 pm Wednesday June 1, 2022. Lisa Murkowski has also not filed with Division of Elections. Hope that helps. – sd
