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.

    Fun to receive your “musings,” Shane – keep on musing!! Every Conservative voice out there is music to my ears! I just accidently walked onto a super-[redacted] site and it made me very depressed – all that hate & ignorance was just too much to stomach! From here on in (unless the “siren song” of the Left is too tempting…) I’m not gonna stray very far from the reservation – or the planation, for that matter – Life’s too damn short!!
