FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski released a statement on Sunday, November 22nd voicing her thoughts on the 2020 election.

In the statement, the senator explained that the integrity of the election process must be respected and Americans’ faith in the electoral system upheld.

Murkowski went on to say, “Each state has worked to ensure a free and fair elections process. President Trump has had the opportunity to litigate his claims, and the courts have thus far found them without merit. A pressure campaign on state legislators to influence the electoral outcome is not only unprecedented but inconsistent with our democratic process.”

“As states wrap up the 2020 election and certify the results, it is incumbent upon all of us to ensure that we respect the integrity of the election process and uphold Americans’ faith in our electoral system. Each state has worked to ensure a free and fair elections process. President Trump has had the opportunity to litigate his claims, and the courts have thus far found them without merit. A pressure campaign on state legislators to influence the electoral outcome is not only unprecedented but inconsistent with our democratic process. It is time to begin the full and formal transition process.”
