Alaska Senator Kelly Tshibaka blames Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for her loss to GOP Senator Lisa Murkowski.
In a statement on Wednesday, Tshibaka said it is regrettable that McConnell (R-Calif.) spent millions of dollars in the race on deceptive ads to secure what he wanted.
She suggested that McConnell wanted a Senate minority that he could control, as opposed to a majority that he could not.
Tshibaka went on to say she is proud of the race and proud to have united Alaskans in their fight against the disastrous Biden administration.
