    WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that “nobody’s going to beat” Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska despite her opposition to Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. In an interview with The Associated Press, McConnell disputed President Donald Trump’s prediction that Alaskans “will never forgive” Murkowski and that she’ll “never recover” politically after bucking her party on Kavanaugh. Murkowski voted against advancing Kavanaugh’s nomination and “present” on the final vote. “She’s certainly going to recover,” McConnell said. He pointed out that Murkowski won re-election as a write-in vote in 2010. “She’s about as strong as you can possibly...

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) is brushing off questions about potential political retribution over her opposition to putting Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, which has earned her fierce criticism from President Trump and conservatives. "I took the vote that I took. And I'm good with it and I'm moving forward. I think we all need to be, so I'm not going to dwell on the 'what ifs,'" Murkowski told reporters in the Senate basement on Tuesday evening. Murkowski was the only Republican senator to oppose Kavanaugh's nomination, saying that she thought he was a "good man" but that she "could...

    The Epoch Times ^ | October 6, 2018 | Zachary Stieber
    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin suggested she’d challenge Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) after Murkowski voted “no” during a cloture vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and announced she’d also not vote for Kavanaugh in the final vote, which is slated for Oct. 6. Kavanaugh was accused of sexual assault by three women, but none have been able to provide any evidence supporting their claims.Murkowski said after much deliberating that she will not be voting for Kavanaugh. “I believe that Judge Kavanaugh is a good man. He’s a good man. He’s clearly a learned judge, but in my conscience, because...

    President Donald Trump warned Sen. Lisa Murkowski that she might face political retribution for her decision to oppose his nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. “I think she will never recover from this,” Trump said. “I think the people from Alaska will never forgive her for what she did.” The president commented about the process in an interview with the Washington Post that was published on Saturday. Murkowski voted against cloture for Kavanaugh’s confirmation on Friday. (On Saturday, Murkowski voted “no” on confirmation and later withdrew her vote to be marked “present” so that her Republican colleague in...

    Yesterday, I listened to both Senate Floor Speeches delivered by Republican, Senators, Susan Collins, of Maine & Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska, and came to the truthful and solid conclusion that Collins was a true "Proflie In Courage" and Murkowski's speech was a lackuster, weak, flawed, "Profile In Utter Weakness"!!! I must admit, I an no great fan of either woman, but.....I must say that Senator, Collins gave a speech that was truly a great one for the ages. I listened to her every word.

    (snips) -- In response to Alaska Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski voting *not* to advance the supreme court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Sarah Palin sends the following tweet: Hey @Lisa Murkowski – I can see 2022 from my house. ___________ Do it, Sarah. Long term CTH readers will well remember how Tea Party candidate Joe Miller was backed by Sarah Palin when he stunningly defeated Lisa Murkowski during the republican primary in 2010. However, Murkowski would not accept the primary defeat and the entitlement-minded incumbent ran as a write-in candidate, and enlisted the assistance of democrats in Alaska to retain...
  • Murkowski to vote "present" as a courtesy to Montana senator

    Axios ^ | Oct 5, 2018 | Marisa Fernandez
    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) will vote "present" as a courtesy to Montana Sen. Steve Daines as he plans to walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding, which collides with the timing of the Senate floor vote for Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation. The big picture: Her vote will not change the outcome of Kavanaugh's confirmation as Sen. Daines was expected to vote in favor of Trump's pick. Though Murkowski announced earlier that she opposes Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court, she says she hopes her "present" vote "reminds us we can take very small steps to be gracious."

    Just minutes ago, in the middle of a rambling and semi-incoherent self-justification on the Senate floor, Lisa Murkowski announced that she was Montana Senator Steve Daines’s Plan B. Daines, as I posted earlier today, was scheduled to walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding tomorrow. I have to admit I respect a man who has his priorities straight. In the comments we’d speculated on who might step aside on the No side of the equation. My guess was Jon Tester would do it as he’s in a tough race, he’s a no vote on Kavanaugh, and stepping aside...

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said Friday evening that she opposed Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, becoming the only Republican senator to come out against President Trump's nominee. "I will be a no tomorrow," Murkowski said in a speech on the Senate floor after describing how she had come to lean against voting to confirm Trump's second nominee to the high court in a final vote on Saturday. But Murkowski said that in the final tally she would ask that her vote be recorded as "present," saying she was doing it as a courtesy to Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), who is...

    RUSH: I want to reread to you Kimberley Strassel’s tweets about Lisa Murkowski. Lisa Murkowski… By the way, this is another one that CNN obviously is nervous about because earlier today Lisa Murkowski was a definite “no” on Kavanaugh, and in announcing her definite “no” she said, “He’s just not the right man for the Supreme Court right now.” “…just not the right man…” So Kimberly Strassel says now she’s changing… **SNIP** Another interesting thing. Hang on. Another new development. But hang on here just a second. Here’s a second tweet before it Kimberley Strassel: Lisa Murkowski, Republican, Alaska, today...

    Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a crucial Republican swing vote in Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court, received a playful prodding from the former governor of Alaska on Twitter. "I can see 2022 from my house," Sarah Palin tweeted on Friday afternoon, mentioning Murkowski. The tweet was widely viewed as a thinly-veiled threat to challenge Murkowski in her 2022 reelection campaign to the Senate.

    SENATOR LISA MURKOWSKI: I did not come to a decision on this until walking onto the floor this morning. I have been wrestling to really try to know what is fair and what is right, and the truth is, that none of this has been fair. This hasn’t been fair to the judge, but I also recognize that we need to have institutions that are viewed as fair and if people who are victims, people who feel that there is no fairness in our system of government, particularly in our courts, then you’ve gone down a path that is not...
