Kelly Tshibaka, Alaska's Commissioner of Administration, is expected to announce a Republican primary challenge to incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the 2022 midterms, Fox News has learned.

Tshibaka, who is set to announce her candidacy Monday, describes herself as a candidate to represent "a new generation of Alaska conservatives" and says she'll portray herself as the candidate to rebuild the Alaskan economy, defend and rejuvinate small businesses and fight to protect the jobs of Alaskans in the energy industry.

Tshibaka will also campaign as a strong opponent to illegal immigration, a staunch defender of the Second Amendment and an advocate for the military. Her campaign also called her "unapologetically pro-life."

Biden is an illegitimate President.  Change my mind.

Murkowski, a true-blue, dyed-in-the-wool, Democrat.

She just doesn't know it yet.

Seriously, there are three confirmed RINOs that need to do the duffle-bag drag outta the Senate:

* Mittens, probably the worst of the three
* Murkowski
* Collins

Sasse won reelection in 2020, so Repubs are stuck with him for another 6 years.

Shen SB-180 double bass (we're talkin' strings, baby)

Most of those are more liberal than Manchin is and he is a Democrat.

This is why professional politicians suck so badly.

The ONLY reason Manchin is a Dem is because of Byrd's legacy. He's playing both ends against the middle. His electorate is conservative, but there ain't no such thing as a Blue Dog Dem any more. The Dems killed those guys off more than 10 years ago.

Manchin simply doesn't have the 'nads to move to the Repubs. ***** ****tard.

Hell, there's a good chance I would vote for Manchin if he was an Illinois Democrat. He's more conservative than most Illinois republicans.

Yeah, you're still cursed with living in Illinois. Glad I fled there in 1999 after two years of living and working there. Even then, it was insufferable what with the tolls that nickeled and dimed you to death not to mention the long parade of governors that seemed to enjoy spending some time in prison. The rest of the state isn't bad, but the entire state is bludgeoned into Dem submission by the criminals in Cook County.
