Murkowski accused Trump-backed Tshibaka of being a “rubber-stamp Republican” and did not appear to regret her impeachment vote. She said of Zibaka:
“I might be the last one standing. I might not be re-elected. Alaskans might say, ‘No, we want an absolute, offline, forever, forever, 100%, never question, rubber stamp Republicans.
“I am honored to have the support of President Trump earlier in this race, and I am delighted to welcome him to the great state of Alaska,” Palin said in a statement released shortly after Trump announced the rally. .https://t.co/36zW9rLpPD pass @AKPublicNews

fight for victory
The establishment and never-Trump Republicans want the former president to walk away, but that’s not what the candidates vying for his support seem to be saying. Trump-backed candidates have been winning primaries across the country, and last Tuesday’s primary was no exception.
In Colorado, Lauren Boebert won with 65 percent of the vote. In Illinois, state Sen. Darren Bailey won and will go up against incumbent Gov. JB Pritzker and the Democratic machine there.
Also in Illinois, Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL) and Rodney Davis (R-IL) are competing against each other for redistricting. Trump-sanctioned Miller emerged as the winner in that race.
In Oklahoma, Gov. Kevin Steit won with 69 percent of the vote. In Utah, Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Burgess Owens both won the primary, each with 61 percent of the vote in their respective races.
So far, 30 Trump-backed candidates have won their primaries. The rest won’t take place until August.
Nothing beats a Trump rally on Saturday night!
