(RepublicanReport.com) – Former President Donald Trump has recently been the subject of fierce debate in the Republican Party. A number of prominent figures in the GOP have made their opposition to Trump known since he left office. In several cases, this hostility has generated an angry response from voters and other party members.
Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) is the latest lawmaker to encounter this problem. Murkowski voted to convict Trump during his second impeachment proceeding earlier this year, one of just seven Republican Senators to do so. On Saturday, March 13, the Alaska Republican Party voted to censure Murkowski for a number of unpopular moves, the most recent of which was her vote against Trump.
The @akgop Central Committee is meeting now in Anchorage at Anchorage Christian School. They are debating a resolution censuring Sen. @lisamurkowski for voting to convict Donald Trump after his impeachment.

That’s not all, however. Murkowski is up for re-election in 2022, and the state GOP has vowed to find a candidate to oppose her in the Alaska primary. This puts her chances of securing another term, if she decides to run, in real jeopardy.
When discussing the reasons for the sanctions against Murkowski, the author of the censure resolution stressed the “great accomplishments” Donald Trump had made, and how they had “helped Alaska.” Regardless of what happens in Washington, DC, it’s clear ordinary Americans will remember Trump’s presidency for a long time to come.
