“If Sen. Murkowski runs again, I’m going to support her,” Sullivan told ABC News in an interview, noting that the two senators “don’t agree on everything, but we make a good team for Alaska.”
“When I ran in 2014 and beat a Democrat incumbent and we got the Senate majority back, Sen. Murkowski was a strong supporter of mine. And in 2016 I supported her. And just in my reelection in 2020, where, you know, the national Democratic Party came in big in Alaska, massive amount of money, Sen. Murkowski was a strong supporter of mine and we won that reelection very strongly,” he said.
Sullivan’s support of Murkowski could be key should she decide to run again next year, as she’s facing potentially crippling opposition from some members of her own party, including former President Donald Trump. The former President said earlier this month that he plans to campaign against her — a pledge that came after Murkowski joined six other GOP senators to vote to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial.
