Pro-life Sarah Palin, Laura Ingraham Tease Senate Runs against Pro-abortion Republican Lisa Murkowski

Calvin Freiburger : Oct 9, 2018 : LifeSiteNews.com

Both women are pro-life and align more closely with the conservative grassroots than with the GOP establishment. As a past Alaska officeholder, Palin would presumably have an advantage over the Connecticut-born, D.C. resident Ingraham, though relocating for political bids is by no means unheard of. It remains to be seen how serious either is about her tweets.

Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, one of the U.S. Senate's two openly pro-abortion Republicans, may face primary challenges from one of two nationally-popular conservative women following her decision to oppose Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination.

President Donald Trump's pick to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy was confirmed by a 50-48 vote Saturday, following a bitter three-month battle over his abortion views and unsubstantiated, last-minute allegations of sexual assault. Resistance was particularly steep because Kavanaugh might provide the fifth vote to overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to directly ban abortion.

Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, the Senate's other pro-abortion Republican, decided to support Kavanaugh after concluding his interpretation of stare decisis (the doctrine of judicial precedent) meant he was actually likely to uphold Roe (a possibility some pro-lifers fear and others dismiss).

Murkowski agreed with that assessment and that Kavanaugh is a "good man," but ultimately decided he was not "the right person for the court at this time" due to the divisiveness of the confirmation process. At the same time, she voted "present" rather than "nay" as a courtesy to Sen. Steve Daines, R-MT, who supported Kavanaugh but had a scheduling conflict with his daughter's wedding.

Speaking for many outraged Republicans, the president denounced Murkowski's decision as "very frankly disgraceful," and predicted that "the people from Alaska will never forgive her for what she did."

Now, two women may be counting on that prediction: former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin, and conservative commentator Laura Ingraham.

"Hey @LisaMurkowski—I can see 2022 from my house," Palin tweeted on Friday, playing off a popular misquote attributed to Palin for years by her critics.

Ingraham, a radio pundit and Fox News host who is also the co-founder of LifeZette, tweeted the same day that she "like[s] Alaska...a lot. Maybe it's time to run for Senate after all."

Both women are pro-life and align more closely with the conservative grassroots than with the GOP establishment. As a past Alaska officeholder, Palin would presumably have an advantage over the Connecticut-born, DC resident Ingraham, though relocating for political bids is by no means unheard of.
