Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Ak.), one of seven Republican senators to vote to convict Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial, faces primary voters who can choose between her and several other candidates, including a candidate backed by the state Republican Party. Alaska’s new non-partisan primary system, almost guarantees that Murkowski will gather enough support to make it to November — unlike Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney (R), whose vote to impeach Trump could cost her dearly. Meanwhile, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin (R) seeks election to the state’s at-large congressional district.
