Senator Murkowski Statement on Primary Results 

ANCHORAGE, AK – Yesterday, Alaska held the first ever top-4 primary election for United States Senate. Initial results show Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) garnering the most support from Alaskans among the 17 challengers on the ballot. Over 153,000 votes have been tallied as of Wednesday morning, and there is clear and strong momentum for the re-election of Alaska’s Senior Senator.

“Alaskans made it clear they want a Senator who puts Alaska first, always. Seniority matters. Honesty matters and understanding the needs of Alaskans and being able to deliver on those needs matters,” said Senator Lisa Murkowski. “My opponent relied on falsehoods, outside backing — from the former President to extreme, activist organizations — to try and deceive Alaskans on who can best deliver for the state, and we still prevailed.”
