Sen. Lisa Murkowski defied the Republican leadership and President Trump last week in voting against the GOP health care bill. Trump called her out on Twitter, saying she had let down the country and Alaska.

But columnist Michael Carey of the Alaska Dispatch News tells Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson that the vote has played well in her home state.

This segment aired on August 2, 2017.
