National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman and United States Senator Rick Scott(R-FL) tried to get Trump to back down on his threat of primarying Lisa Murkowski and Trump was having none of it.
According to a new report, Trump was adamant he wants to primary Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) during a meeting with Rick Scott.
Former President Donald Trump on Thursday dined with National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Chairman Rick Scott (R-Fla.), a Trump adviser confirmed to The Epoch Times.
The meeting took place on the heels of a spat with the NRSC and the Republican National Committee (RNC) over the use of Trump’s name and likeness to raise funds, especially considering the committees’ ongoing support of incumbents who backed Trump’s impeachment. The group includes Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), whom Trump vowed to oppose in the primary. During the dinner with Scott, Trump would not budge on opposing Murkowski, according to the adviser.
Trump released a statement earlier in March vowing to primary her:
This is why fundraising is so important. If the GOP establishment decides to back Murkowski then Trump will need his own fundraising apparatus to take her on.
Luckily he is promoting that.
Murkoski was among the group of GOP Senators who voted to impeach Trump.
She is up for re-election in 2022.
