JUNEAU (AP) — Kelly Tshibaka, who is running for the Alaska U.S. Senate seat held by fellow Republican Lisa Murkowski, has announced plans for a fundraiser hosted by former President Donald Trump in February at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Florida.
“It’s a great honor to have the endorsement and enthusiastic support of President Trump and I am thrilled that he will be hosting this event,” Tshibaka said in a statement Nov. 3.
Tshibaka, a former commissioner of the state Department of Administration under Gov. Mike Dunleavy, announced plans in March to run for the Senate.
