Haley nabs first Senate endorsement from Alaska's Murkowski

Nikki Haley has landed her first Senate endorsement of the presidential cycle: moderate Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska).

The endorsement comes ahead of Alaska’s Tuesday presidential caucus and as the former governor and ambassador has lost all contests thus far to former President Donald Trump.

“America needs someone with the right values, vigor, and judgment to serve as our next President — and in this race, there is no one better than her,” Murkowski said in a statement.

Murkowski’s leanings are hardly in step with the grassroots of her party: She voted to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial following the Jan. 6 insurrection.

She joins conservative Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) as Haley’s lone endorsers in Congress.
