RINO Sen. Murkowski draws GOP primary challenge

The only one of the RINOs who voted with the Democrats to impeach President Trump after he left office who is running for reelection next year, Senator Lisa Murkowski (RINO-Alaska) has drawn a top drawer conservative primary challenge.  Murkowsi was previously censured by the Central Committee of the Alaska Republican Party for her impeachment vote, and the party vowed to recruit a primary challenger.
Kelly Tshibaka, who serves as Commissioner of Administration in Alaska state government and touts herself as part of "a new generation of Alaska conservatives", has announced her candidacy and taken Murkowski to task for a wide range of liberal votes in addition to her vote for impeachment.
The two other GOP Senators who are up for reelection in 2022 and defected on the impeachment vote, Burr (NC) and Toomey (PA), have announced their retirement,  there is some speculation that Murkowski may join them rather than trying to take on both the grassroots and the party organization in a primary.
