Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is threatening to primary Lisa Murkowski over her SCOTUS vote.
In a video posted to Instagram Palin says “Lisa Murkowski, this is my house.”
She then says “I’m willing to give it up, for the greater good of this country and this great state.”
Palin explains her frustration at Murkowski in the video, saying “If you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing this time, and at least give a fair shake to the Supreme Court nominee that your president will be bringing before you, if you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing, … and what the majority of Americans want you to do, to do what you were sent to Washington, D.C., to do.”
She warns “Walk back what you have already committed yourself to. You better backtrack. You know, you have already put yourself in this box saying no matter who it is, you’re not going to support the person, not until you have a chance to appoint a judicial nominee under another president instead of this one,” Palin continues.
“You’re hoping, what, that this president doesn’t win? Otherwise, you’d be cooperating with the president. Really, what it is is cooperating with the majority of Americans who know that it’s now or never for America.”
“So much hinges on the Supreme Court. You know the reason, you know why it’s so important, and that’s why you’re thinking you’re going to go rogue. You know, there’s a time and a place to go rogue.”
“This isn’t the time, this isn’t the place. We sure hope you have it within you to do the right thing this time. So you should walk back,” Palin adds.
