According to a report from the Washington Times Alaska Republican party officials are looking to former governor Sarah Palin as a potential primary challenger to Senator Lisa Murkowski, who upset Trump supporters with her decision to vote to convict during his 2nd impeachment trial.
Murkowski was one of only 7 Republican Senators to vote alongside Democrats for conviction.
Per the report “Ms. Palin, who served as Alaska’s ninth governor and the Republican Party’s 2008 vice presidential nominee on the ticket with John McCain, is an early favorite among conservatives. But she isn’t the only possible contender for the race. Alaska Gov. Michael James Dunleavy, who has been in office since 2018, is being prodded by some in the party.”
September of last year, Palin posted a video on Instagram where she said “Lisa Murkowski, this is my house.”
She then warns “I’m willing to give it up, for the greater good of this country and this great state.”
