Former President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday he is endorsing GOP Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s reelection bid, as long as Dunleavy refrains from backing Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) in her race.
Murkowski was one of seven Republican senators who voted to convict Trump earlier this year on a single article of inciting insurrection in connection with the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the US Capitol. She is the only one of those seven to come up for reelection next year.
Trump did not mention Murkowski’s impeachment vote in an emailed statement from his Save America PAC, which initially stated that Dunleavy “has my Complete and Total Endorsement” before adding that support was “subject to his non-endorsement of Senator Lisa Murkowski who has been very bad for Alaska, including losing ANWAR, perhaps the most important drilling site in the world, and much else.”
“In other words,” Trump emphasized, “if Mike endorses her, which is his prerogative, my endorsement of him is null and void, and of no further force or effect!”
The 45th president endorsed Murkowski’s primary rival Kelly Tshibaka in June and he has vowed to travel to Alaska to personally campaign against the incumbent. (Read more from “Trump Endorses Alaska Gov. Dunleavy – If He Doesn’t Support Murkowski” HERE)
