    Sarah Palin Fires Warning Shot: Strongly Hints at Senate Run Against Lisa Murkowski

    Sarah Palin Fires Warning Shot: Strongly Hints at Senate Run Against Lisa Murkowski

    October 5, 2018

    Kristinn Taylor

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin strongly hinted at a challenge to Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) when Murkowski is next up for reelection in 2022. Murkowski, a three term incumbent, is undecided on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, but gave several indications Friday that she will vote no.





    Sarah Palin was the vice presidential running mate for Sen.John McCain’s presidential campaign in 2008.


    Palin wrote on Twitter Friday afternoon,”Hey @LisaMurkowski – I can see 2022 from my house…”

    Palin and Murkowski are longtime political foes. Plain defeated her father Gov. Frank Murkowski in 2006 in the GOP primary, thwarting his reelection bid. Palin successfully endorsed GOP challenger Joe Miller who defeated incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the 2010 primary. Murkowski then controversially ran as a write-in candidate, winning reelection over Miller in the general election.


    Wikipedia notes Murkowski, who initially was appointed to the Senate in 2002 by her father Frank Murkowski when he left the Senate after being elected Alaska governor, has never won a majority of the vote in the general election.


    “Although Murkowski has won three full terms to the Senate, she has never won a majority of the vote; she won pluralities in each of her three races, with 48.6% of the vote in 2004, 39.5% in 2010, and 44.4% in 2016.”


    Minutes before Palin tweeted to Murkowski about 2022, she retweeted former aide Rebecca Mansour speaking about Palin and Murkowski, “2/2 And I defended that fact that a brave woman whistleblower was the only person to ever defeat the crony corruption of the Murkowski family. That woman was @SarahPalinUSA, and I’m sure you have plenty of misogynist attacks to throw her way, just as you’ve thrown them at me.

    Boom – Signal Flare From Sarah Palin…


    October 5, 2018


    In response to Alaska Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski voting *not* to advance the supreme court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Sarah Palin sends the following tweet:





    Do it, Sarah.


    Long term CTH readers will well remember how Tea Party candidate Joe Miller was backed by Sarah Palin when he stunningly defeated Lisa Murkowski during the republican primary in 2010. However, Murkowski would not accept the primary defeat and the entitlement-minded incumbent ran as a write-in candidate, and enlisted the assistance of democrats in Alaska to retain her seat in the general election.


    The Tea Party was furious at the level of elitist refusal to accept the primary defeat in 2010, and Senator Murkowski has been a thorn in the side of conservatives ever since.


    In a further slap to the face for the base of the movement, when Murkowski returned to the Senate as a successful write-in candidate, the 2011 professional republican apparatus, the Decepticons, never held her accountable for her insufferable self-interest. Instead the GOPe, through then minority leader Mitch McConnell, allowed Murkowski to return to the same committee positions she held before rebuking the will of the republican electorate.


    Murkowski’s vote today to block advancing nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh is yet another exhibition of her ideological self-interest.


    If Sarah Palin decides to challenge Murkowski, there is a very strong likelihood Mrs Palin would be successful in finally ending this painful chapter in conservative politics.


    Do it Sarah; we’ve got your six!

    I thought that was a really great tweet, too, Jean!!!



    I would really like to see a nice position for Sarah Palin in government and US Senator from Alaska sounds really fine to me. Sarah did a great job as Mayor of her community, super job as head of Energy for Alaska, took on all those oil companies and WON, great job as Governor, unfortunately she got wrapped up in the Presidential election with McCain so early into it, that she didn't have a chance to do as much for Alaska as she could have. I thought she was wrong to resign but understood why she did. So I think she would be a great US Senator from Alaska, very competent, knowledgeable and Republican!! I think she supports my beloved FairTax, too!! (I hope FairTax passes long before 2022, but in case it doesn't, we need to elect FairTax Republicans!!)
