It’s hard to believe that Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson will be JUSTICE Jackson in just a few short days. But it’s happening!

And now we know we have the votes. And it will be a bi-partisan vote.

However, reportedly one Senator is struggling.

Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski has not yet announced which way she will vote. And according to multiple reports, she has not yet made a decision one way or another.

Senator Murkowski is said to be struggling. And this really isn’t that surprising. She is up for reelection, and Alaska is quite the conservative state.

She is also facing a Republican challenger who is undoubtedly hungry for ammunition against the Alaskan Senator.

On the other hand, Alaska has now introduced ranked-choice voting, which will make it a bit easier for Murkowski. And she is still a popular Senator.

I think Murkowski will win reelection. And I think she should vote for Jackson. Here is why:

The Alaskan voters who are part of the Maga movement will never vote for Murkowski no matter what she does or says. It’s over with them.

The Maga train has left the station and is not returning.

Murkowski should concentrate on building a coalition of voters — democrats, independents, and moderate Republicans. THESE voters are winnable, and unlike the Maga klan, they have no skin in the game in voting against her.

Senator Murkowski could choose to be a part of something — she could choose to dance in the wind with the flowers or to huddle on the sidelines with the winds of fear.

Fear is a ruinous emotion and never got anybody anywhere. Murkowski should not only cast her vote for Judge Jackson; she should do it with a broad smile and with pride. This is about more than any one person. This is about making history. Jump on the train with us, Senator Murkowski. Vote yes.
