Lisa Murkowski Makes A Case For Republicans To Primary Her

Is there a Republican senator that is worse than Lisa Murkowski? Susan Collins is awful, but she hails from a predominantly blue state to afford to be more liberal. As much as he irritates GOP voters, Mitt Romney usually follows the party line on any genuine conservative issue.

Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska was the lone Republican to vote against a Supreme Court nominee this week, and now she’s praising the far-left Women’s March for Abortion on Twitter. It is unusual behavior from a Republican, especially one who refused to vote for Brett Kavanaugh and tried to stop Amy Coney Barrett from being confirmed.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski should not have gone out of her way to flatter pro-abortion extremists at the Women’s March to make a political point. As a member of the Republican Party, there is no need to go out of your way to do so. Shut up if you’re not going to help. That’s the principle at work there.

Alaska can do better, and the GOP establishment should allow them to do so. Being a pro-abortion fanatic while protesting for the Women’s March is crossing more than enough boundaries to disqualify a Republican party with no lines. Mitch McConnell and the rest of the Senate incumbent hierarchy should get out of the way and let the voters decide without being swayed.

Senator Lisa Murkowski lost her re-election attempt in 2010, but some believe she may run as a write-in candidate this time and win. To those folks, I have a high level of skepticism. It’s no longer 2010. Republicans are considerably more energized, and Murkowski has a history of spitting in the faces of her constituents at this point. This time that won’t be rewarded, and it shouldn’t be.

Senator Lisa Murkowski’s pro-abortion beliefs are repugnant and should be enough to force her out of the Senate, but they’re also reason enough to replace her. The Republican Party can’t stand a senator from a state Trump won by ten points which can’t even agree on the most fundamental topics.
