Is McConnell’s time in congress up?

Kelly Tshibaka, a Republican Senate candidate, revealed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell would not have her support to be party leader in the upper chamber.

Tshibaka, who has been endorsed by Trump, revealed earlier this month that because McConnell had been too willing to make deals and compromises with the Biden administration, the Senator hopeful would not give him her backing.

In a statement, Tshibaka, who is vying for Senator Lisa Murkowski’s seat in Alaska, said that McConnell had repeatedly bailed out Biden, “giving him gifts of Senate votes, which are the only things keeping the Biden administration on life support.” She also gave an example of the kind of bailouts McConnell had given Biden, saying that “after rescuing Biden with the last debt ceiling increase, McConnell said he would never do it again. But he just did,” with the help of Lisa Murkowski.

Calling Murkowski and McConnell Biden’s “enabling officers,” Tshibaka said it was the kind of backtracking displayed by Senator Lisa Murkowski that was the reason she wanted to replace her.
She also mentioned that lukewarm Republicans were “the political elites pitted against real Americans,” as they had enabled Biden by supporting his agenda, that was “business busting… gun grabbing… illegal immigrant inviting.”

As the primary contender to take Murkowski’s Senate seat in the general election in November 2022, Tshibaka has earned a nod from Trump, who promoted her statement through Save America, his political action committee.

Since both Murkowski and McConnell have earned the ire of Trump, it’s unsurprising that Tshibaka –– an outspoken Republican senate nominee –– has earned his stamp of approval for bringing to light many of the misgivings Trump toward both senators.
