Alaska Bikers for Trump endorse Tshibaka for Senate

Alaska | June 30, 2021

About 60 people showed up at the home of Misty and Doug Massie in Wasilla on Tuesday to raise funds for Kelly Tshibaka, in her run for U.S. Senate against Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

Sources say that about $10,000 was raised for her campaign at the event.

Tshibaka also came away with a new endorsement: The Alaska chapter of Bikers for Trump brought a certificate of support from the club. Tshibaka earlier this month was endorsed by Donald Trump himself.

Tshibaka had to take a break from the meet-and-greet event to go inside the Massie home to tape a national radio show for “Stacy on the Right,” which she was able to broadcast live to the people outside the house.

The fundraising quarter ends on June 30, and a few days afterward both the Tshibaka campaign and the Lisa Murkowski campaigns will report to the Federal Election Commission the results of their fundraising since April 1. Tshibaka is already spending money on television and digital advertising even though the primary is more than a year away.

In 2016, Murkowski raised nearly $6 million total to beat Margaret Stock by 15 points in the general election. Stock was only able to raise $740,000…

How energy will steer the Alaska Senate race between Murkowski and Tshibaka

Alaska | June 30, 2021

In the battle for the United States Senate, all eyes are Alaska. The next 16 months promise to be the most expensive and exciting in the state’s 60-year history. Alaska’s 20-year incumbent, Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski faces a primary challenge from Kelly Tshibaka, who is running with the full support of former President Trump.

With nearly 25 years on Alaska’s Republican Party’s State Central Committee, I know how Alaskans view the policies and positional authority of our three-member congressional delegation. Having interviewed both candidates on my weekly radio program, I have seen how each candidate is approaching this campaign.

After two decades in the Senate, Murkowski has earned a reputation as a barrier-breaking, deal-making, party-crossing, legislation-passing and Alaska-first lawmaker. Even those not enamored with her left-leaning views on social issues find her incredibly knowledgeable. She has been a leader on energy and natural resources that make up the vast majority of Alaska’s annual GDP, employs over one-quarter of our private-sector workers and provide the United States with the sixth-most oil and gas output in the nation.

After a historic write-in campaign over a tea party challenger in 2010, a near-romp in her reelection in 2016 and the newly-implemented ranked-choice voting starting in 2022, it is a mistake to ever underestimate Murkowski.

Beltway pundits cite her repeated entanglements with Trump as her greatest vulnerability, especially her vote for the former president’s impeachment. Trump has vowed to unseat her, throwing his support full behind her challenger.

Tshibaka returned to Alaska in 2019 after a decade in various jobs Washington, D.C. Since launching her campaign, she has amassed numerous Republican Party affiliate endorsements and basked in the Trump glow…..

Mike Gravel, Former US Senator for Alaska, Dies at 91

Alaska | June 28, 2021

SEASIDE, Calif.—Mike Gravel, a former U.S. senator from Alaska who read the Pentagon Papers into the Congressional Record, has died. He was 91.

Gravel, who represented Alaska as a Democrat in the Senate from 1969 to 1981, died Saturday, according to his daughter, Lynne Mosier. Gravel had been living in Seaside, California, and was in failing health, said Theodore W. Johnson, a former aide.

In 1971, Gravel led a one-man filibuster to protest the Vietnam-era draft and he read into the Congressional Record 4,100 pages of the 7,000-page leaked document known as the Pentagon Papers, the Defense Department’s history of the country’s early involvement in Vietnam.

Gravel reentered national politics decades after his time in the Senate to twice run for president. Gravel, then 75, and his wife, Whitney, took public transportation in 2006 to announce he was running for president as a Democrat in the 2008 election ultimately won by Obama…

Breaking: Federal judge stops Biden from blocking Alaska oil and leases

Alaska | June 16, 2021

A federal judge put a stop to the Biden Administration’s unlawful moratorium placed on oil and gas leasing until the litigation is completed.

Judge Terry A. Doughty of the U.S. District Court in Monroe, Louisiana said Biden’s cancellation of oil and gas leases was illegal.

The judge said the states suing the federal government could prove immediate harm, as the moratorium prevents them from collecting fees from oil and gas exploration and production.

Alaska, along with Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and West Virginia filed the lawsuit against Biden, who in his first week of his presidency suspended federal leases.

“This is excellent news for Alaska. As we have seen in less than five months, the threat of federal overreach on major economic projects within Alaska is very real,” said Gov. Mike Dunleavy. ..
