Fox News’ Laura Ingraham Hints at Senate Run to Replace Lisa Murkowski in Alaska


Laura Ingraham, Fox News primetime host, hinted on Twitter Friday morning that she is considering a run for Senate…to represent Alaska.

The pro-Trump pundit’s declaration came after Sen. Lisa Murkowski, the Alaska Republican, voted against a procedural cloture motion to advance Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to a final confirmation vote. The vote still passed.

“I like Alaska…a lot,” Ingraham tweeted after the vote. “Maybe it’s time to run for Senate after all. [Murkowski] has abandoned all principles of due process and fairness. Disgraceful.”

“#ConfirmKavanaugh,” she added.

Fox News did not comment on Ingraham’s apparent political aspirations in Alaska. Ingraham, it should be noted, is from Connecticut, a state that is nowhere near The Last Frontier.

Murkowski is up for reelection in 2022, so Ingraham has some time to leave her high-paying pundit gig on primetime Fox News to head out to Alaska and embark on a political campaign the likes of which Alaska hasn’t seen since Sarah Palin. Bookmark this — stranger things have happened.
