Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) is expressing extreme dissatisfaction with the Trump post-election situation and reportedly toying with the idea of leaving the Republican Party. She is saying, however, that joining the Democrats is not an option. Sen. Murkowski lost the 2010 Republican primary but was able to win in the general election by virtue of a write-in campaign.
Regardless of what Sen. Murkowski decides, a new voter-approved primary system will alleviate any further problems for her moving into the general election. The new law guarantees that the top four finishers in a new jungle primary system will advance into the general. Therefore, if Sen. Murkowski remains a Republican or becomes an Independent, she will be present on the general election ballot.
