Trump announced a campaign against Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, according to The Western Journal.
Murkowski often opposed Trump’s agenda during his presidency.
On Jan. 8 she said, “I want him to resign. I want him out. He has caused enough damage.”
“I will not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski. She represents her state badly and her country even worse. I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be — in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator,” Trump said.
“Her vote to advance radical left Democrat Deb Haaland for Secretary of the Interior is yet another example of Murkowski not standing up for Alaska,” he said.
“I think she will never recover from this,” he said. “I think the people from Alaska will never forgive her for what she did.”
“She’s about as strong as you can possibly be in Alaska. Nobody’s going to beat her,” McConnell said.
“I can see 2022 from my house,” Palin tweeted in October 2018.
Hey @LisaMurkowski – I can see 2022 from my house…

“I think he should leave,” the senator said. “He said he’s not going to show up. He’s not going to appear at the inauguration. He hasn’t been focused on what is going on with COVID. He’s either been golfing or he’s been inside the Oval Office fuming and throwing every single person who has been loyal and faithful to him under the bus, starting with the vice president.
“He doesn’t want to stay there. He only wants to stay there for the title. He only wants to stay there for his ego. He needs to get out. He needs to do the good thing, but I don’t think he’s capable of doing a good thing.”
“I have reached the conclusion that President Trump’s actions were an impeachable offense and his course of conduct amounts to incitement of insurrection as set out in the Article of Impeachment,” Murkowski said in a statement Feb. 14.
“President Trump did everything in his power to stay in power,” she said in her statement, claiming Trump’s speech that day “was intended to stoke passions in a crowd that the President had been rallying for months. They were prepared to march on the Capitol and he gave them explicit instructions to do so.”
