U.S. Senate candidate Kelly Tshibaka will make a stop today (Nov. 19) in Fairbanks, where she will speak at a luncheon hosted by the Alaska Interior Republicans.

Tshibaka, who is challenging incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the Alaska primary, is keynote speaker for the noon event, which is at the Westmark Hotel & Conference Center on Noble Street.

Tshibaka is a Harvard-trained lawyer who worked in Washington, D.C., for 16 years. Born in Alaska, Tshibaka returned to the state in 2019, and served as the Alaska Department of Administration commissioner for two years.

Tshibaka resigned in 2021 to run full time for the U.S. Senate. Previously, she worked as chief data officer for the inspector general of the U.S. Postal Service under Presidents Trump and Obama.

She also was acting inspector general for the Federal Trade Commission, counsel to the inspector general in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and in the Office of Inspector General of the Department of Justice.
