In their latest reporting, Project Veritas purports to have uncovered proof that Lisa Murkowski privately supported Alaska's controversial Ballot Measure 2, which established a rank choice voting system that could boost her reelection odds by making her the "second choice" candidate among Democrats in the state. 

In the video, Murkowski campaign staffers tell the undercover Project Veritas journalist that Murkowski consultants worked on Ballot Measure 2 with her in mind. "She stayed quiet and honestly it was probably best she stayed quiet on that,” said Murkowski's Interior campaign coordinator.  “Between you and me, Ballot Measure 2 was actually created, I think, for two reasons. Number one, it was created because there were people in this state who wanted to see a better system, but they also wanted Lisa to get reelected. We’re being strategic with our messaging. Walking a fine line, I guess is what I’m saying, to try to get her elected.”

Another campaign coordinator added “While we were working on Ballot Measure 2 and voting for Ballot Measure 2, we had Sen. Murkowski in mind the whole time.”

After the video above went live, Project Veritas confronted Murkowski and members of her campaign staff, who repeated talking points and didn't address the claims her own staffers made in the video.

 Murkowski is underwater with Republican voters, and a number of polls this year have had her consistently trailing her main challenger Kelly Tshibaka, who has been endorsed by Donald Trump and the Alaska Republican Party
