Lisa Murkowski has announced that she will be running again for the Alaska U.S. Senate seat she has held since 2003.

Murkowski, a Republican, originally was named to the Senate by her father, Frank Murkowski, after he left the same position in the U.S. Senate to become Governor of Alaska. 

Before becoming a U.S. Senator, Lisa Murkowski had been a member of the Alaska House of Representatives, representing northeast Anchorage.

She has held the Senate seat since then. 

In 2010, Murkowski launched a successful write-in campaign for the Senate, after losing the Republican Party primary to Joe Miller. Only one other U.S. Senate candidate, Strom Thurmond, has ever won a write-in election, and that was in 1954. 

Murkowski declared her candidacy for a 4th term in the Senate on Friday, November 12th, 2021.

She is up against Kelly Tshibaka, who is endorsed by former U.S. President Donald Trump. Trump was angered by Murkowski's decision to vote to impeach him and famously vowed to support any Murkowski opponent in 2022 who has "a pulse."
