Alaska Senate Republican Primary on Tuesday: Tea Party Favorite Joe Miller vs. Incumbent Lisa Murkowski

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on August 21, 2010

Alaska’s Republicans will have a chance to vote for their nominee.  Joe Miller is taking on incumbent Senator Lisa Murkowski, and they had a debate on Thursday.

Methinks that Murkowski got her head handed to her on a platter, Joe Miller clearly won this debate.

Miller has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham, Lars Larson, Dr. Christie Eberhardt (President of Alaska Right to Life), and the Tea Party express.  Murkowski has some notable local endorsements and the endorsement of the NRA, she is good on 2nd Amendment rights (it would be impossible to get elected in Alaska otherwise).  There is a definite Tea Party/conservative vs. establishment battle going on here, as Murkowski embodies the Republican establishment in Alaska having been appointed to her seat by her father, former Governor Frank Murkowski (no nepotism there I’m sure!).  Her father was then beat in his primary against Sarah Palin.

It’ll be interesting to see how Tuesday plays out.  I’m pulling for Joe Miller as the true conservative running, color me unimpressed with Senator Murkowski’s overall voting record.

Miller Highlights Murkowski Campaign’s Outside Influence

Miller Campaign Highlights Murkowski’s Outside Influence

Anchorage, Alaska. August 20, 2010 — The Murkowski campaign says, “Joe Miller and his outside groups criticize Lisa when she votes for Alaska….” According to Influence Explorer, 88% of Senator Murkowski’s funds are from out of state: 58% of her total contributions come from PAC money, with 42% from individuals for the years 2009-10. Only 12% of her money is from inside Alaska. Murkowski’s most recent FEC filing showed $1.9 million in PAC contributions.

Conversely, ninety-seven percent (97%) of the money contributed to Miller’s campaign came from individuals and only 3% from PACs contributions (SarahPAC). Eighty percent (80%) of individual contributions were $100 or less. The majority of the Miller campaign funds have come from Alaskans.
Miller campaign spokesman Randy DeSoto said, “Murkowski criticizes Joe for somehow not trying to prevent groups who are concerned about the path our nation is on from seeking to inform voters how their Senator has been voting in Washington. Then she turns around and takes millions in special interest PAC dollars, the vast majority of it from Outside. Alaskans should know Joe will be beholden to no one when he goes to Washington. His sole guiding light will be seeking to restore limited government and personal freedom.”
