Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska would be welcomed into the Democratic Party if she ever decides to leave the GOP.

Dean's comments came in an early morning tweet on Thursday:

President Donald Trump was critical of Murkowski for not voting for the Republic healthcare measures, The Hill reports.

And Trump tweeted on Wednesday:

Following the president's tweet, Murkowski received a call from Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke letting her know the vote had put the state's future with the Trump administration at risk, the Alaska Dispatch News reports.

For her part, Murkowski said: "We're here to govern. We're here to legislate. We're here to represent the people that sent us here."
