Palin: Todd’s Response to the Miller Flap

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 6, 2010

I am constantly amazed that the “hate bloggers” in Alaska simply won’t give up.  They just can’t seem to grasp the reality that the only thing they have been successful at is catapulting Sarah Palin to even greater notoriety.  Everything imaginable has been thrown at Sarah and yet she is like Teflon.   Earlier this week the less than illustrious Mudflats blog published a private email communication written by Todd Palin without regard for the Palin’s personal privacy.  Bring it on because both Sarah Palin and I can see Pennsylvania Avenue from our front porches.      ~Jackie~

From http://www.weeklystandard.com:

Yesterday, the anti-Palin blog Mudflats leaked an email that Todd Palin had sent to several people, in which he complained about something Alaska Republican senatorial candidate Joe Miller had (not) said about Sarah Palin’s qualifications for the presidency. Predictably, a media frenzy ensued.

Here’s Mr. Palin’s response, in a statement released to THE WEEKLY STANDARD:

My family has worked hard in supporting Joe Miller, so when I heard he’d said something less than supportive of my wife’s efforts, I responded. But it turns out we’d gotten our wires crossed and Joe hadn’t said anything like what I’d been told. So there’s no story here except the fact that the press put our personal emails online again, and again couldn’t even be bothered to conceal our email addresses or take any steps to protect our privacy.

Additionally, this story was chronicled over at The Other McCain Blog quite well.

Sept. 11 events in Alaska: Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Joe Miller

Posted by traceyporreca on September 13, 2010

Yesterday was an eventful day throughout the United States, because on this day 9 years ago, America and it’s people were changed forever. “Time heals all wounds” is the saying, but the wounds are still fresh for many of us, especially for those who lost loved ones on that fateful day. Alaskans, like the rest of America, spent the day honoring and remembering those sacrifices and reflecting on what it means to be an American in the Great State of Alaska.

The early part of this day found me wishing I was somewhere else. My email, facebook and Blackberry were buzzing with the two planned events of the day all of my friends were attending without me – the “Standing Strong For America” rally put on by the Conservative Patriots Group, the most active Tea Party group in the state of Alaska, and the Glen Beck event to be held in Anchorage later that evening. I spent the morning texting and calling friends while on a road trip to Fairbanks. I was over 400 miles away and would not be able to attend either event. Everyone was excited and as the morning wore into the afternoon, I found myself feeling more disconnected from everything that was going on. Then, I had a reality check.

In a parking lot in Fairbanks was a car, a PT Cruiser, with murals painted on all sides and the back. It was a private vehicle honoring Marines and on one side was the picture of a Marine saluting at a funeral. It hit me at that moment, on this day, that my desire to attend these events and be with friends had overshadowed the importance of the day itself. This is a day to hold sacred, to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, and to never forget. I will never forget and let us pray this nation will always remember. In that spirit, and in remembrance, I’d like to share these images and thoughts, with the help of Julie Gillette. Julie is the current president of the Valley Republican Women’s Club, the club I was president of until late June of this year when I relocated. Julie has done a wonderful job as club president. She is a true patriot, a female veteran like myself, a mother and wife, and I am grateful for her help with this post and most of all, her friendship.

The “Standing Strong For America” Rally in Wasilla, Alaska

This rally was held at the Curtis D. Menard Memorial Sports Complex in Wasilla, Alaska. Sponsored by the Conservative Patriots Group (CPG), it was billed as a non-partisan event to remember and honor the significance of the day. Several groups were invited and attended the event. According to Julie, Alaska Senate Candidate Scott McAdams was invited but did not return calls to CPG and was not in attendance. The Valley Republican Women’s Club (VRWC) was in attendance, however, and had a table with information which was manned by several board members to include Carol Doner, Julie Gillette, Carol Ryan, and Jill Frost (pictured below).

Various media outlets speculated there were about 300 in attendance, but according to Julie Gillette, the actual number was around 450. “There were 400 chairs set up and they were full and there were a few people standing in the back as well as the volunteers,” said Julie. I’m not surprised considering the fact that conservative event attendance numbers are often downplayed by the mainstream media. Here is a photo from the Anchorage Daily News confirming Julie’s standing room only account:

The event began with a singing of the National Anthem by Adele Morgan, a very talented local artist (seen here with Julie’s husband Glen).

Dick Stoffel led the Pledge of Allegience and then CPG President Jen Bettine kicked things off. Glen Beigel spoke briefly and then Wasilla Mayor Verne Rupright spoke of his military service and reminded everyone never to forget the events of this day in history. Joe Miller then took the stage. According to the Anchorage Daily News report (ADN), “Miller said the nation was attacked on Sept. 11 ‘because we’re American.’ He said the U.S. is a threat to its enemies because of its ‘exceptionalism,’ its freedoms and constitutional restraint of government.

‘We as a nation have been activated. We’ve been activated through 9/11. We’re now activated in a political sense,’ Miller said. ‘We see a movement across the United States right now that is moving this country in a direction that restores foundations, that restores constitutional principles and makes us proud to be Americans again.'”

Sarah Palin was then introduced as a surprise speaker, to the crowd’s delight. “I thank you from the bottom of my heart for not just welcoming me in my hometown but for being who you are, true patriots holding on to time-tested truths. Knowing some basic principles that again the rest of America I think can learn from so many Alaskans who believe this — those time-tested truths that are based on the government that governs least governs best,” Palin said (according to the ADN report

The mood of those in attendance was described by Julie:

“There were definitely a few tears through the slide show and silence as people relived the day of the attacked. The bagpipes and the timing of playing them at the end of the slide show left many with wet eyes. I was hanging in there until he started playing. Adele Morgan’s beautiful rendition of the National Anthem was amazing. It also created some watery eyes. Mood was mostly positive and upbeat, especially when Joe Miller and Sarah Palin spoke.”

The event lasted about 2 hours and then Julie described a special moment for herself and her husband Glenn:

“I had Glenn take a picture of us at the table before it got really busy. We were not initially going to try to get pictures with Sarah because she was swarmed with people. After the crowd died down, someone motioned to Carol Ryan that we should run over and get pictures before she left. Glenn has taken several pictures of me or our group with Sarah over the past 10 years. He finally got one for himself. We’re so glad to have had the opportunity because she was not able to stick around for the Glenn Beck Meet & Greet, she had a plane to catch.”

I agree with Julie in that the CPG did an amazing job putting on this event. Here is the picture with the group, and with Julie’s husband Glenn. Also included is an ADN photo of Joe Miller Speaking to Glenn.

Glenn Beck comes to Anchorage

Alaska conservatives and Glenn Beck supporters were anxious to see Beck in Anchorage. The doors to the Dena’ina Center were opened and thousands of people who were standing in a line that wrapped around the building, started to file in. Julie said she saw many people she knew, but also many new faces in the crowd of attendees. Kristan Cole, who tweeted earlier that she had been invited to sit with the family, was up front, along with Sarah’s mother Sally Heath and other family members. Chuck Heath was not present, however. According to Sally, he was moose hunting! (it is the season here in Alaska).

There were also a few protesters. “They hid behind masks and some blamed George Bush for 9/11. As a retired Air Force member, that loses me everytime,” said Julie. “There was a lady with a sign saying not to vote for Joe Miller but she was peaceful and we told her what makes this country great is she has the right to hold that sign.” She also described the reactions of those waiting in line to get in to these protesters. “The people around me either ignored them or laughed but it was that laughter followed by the sentiment that we knew these guys would get more press than the actual event. There was a reporter in the room that we heard say to another reporter, ‘Look at all these fanatics!'”

First Sarah introduced Glenn, they spoke together, and then Glenn spoke. The mood during the presentation was generally upbeat and acknowledging. “(There was)Cheering, heads nodding in agreement. Eagerness for information, quiet, you could hear a pin drop when he spoke of serious issues and applause to take the roof off when he spoke of smaller government and us taking care of our neighbors so the government doesn’t have to,” said Julie.

Near the beginning of the event, as can be seen in one of the clips below, there was a heckler. It has been widely reported that conservative radio talk show host, and former Republican candidate for Lt. Governor, Eddie Burke assisted in “removing” this disruptive attendee. I spoke with Eddie earlier this evening and he gave me his version of the event:

“I was sitting in the front row one seat from the aisle, in front of the stage and Sarah as she was speaking. There were a lot of people coming forward and snapping pictures and then going back to their seats, so at first I didn’t really pay much attention to this woman. She appeared to be in her 30’s. I’m not sure exactly where she came from, but she stood there and then yelled out “You’re a hippocrit!” directly to Sarah. Everyone started booing her. I was within arm’s reach of her and the booing was so loud I couldn’t hear what else she said, but she was still talking. I stood up and moved toward her, and to use one of Sarah’s lines from one of her speeches, I said ‘Quit making things up!’ At that point, Sarah pointed to me and said ‘Thanks Eddie. Eddie Burke, folks.’ Security came and they escorted her out. I got a kick out of Sarah’s comment about us all knowing each other here, and then Beck made the reply about it being like a high school gymnasium. Afterward, many people came up to me and shook my hand. Many of them asked me when I would be back on the radio and told me that they missed my show. Even more folks commented that they voted for me in the recent election. It was, I have to say, pretty humbling.”

Joe Miller was also in the crowd and up front with Sarah and family. Per Julie, “Many times the crowd yelled out ‘Joe Miller will get us back on the right path.’ Sarah mentioned he was there and there was huge applause for Joe. She promoted him, but the crowd also yelled his name when discussing solutions to America’s problems.”

I asked Julie what Glenn Beck’s main message was:

“Faith – find a religion and be grounded with the Creator. Hope – we can turn things around but each one of us has the duty and responsibility to make that happen and it is hard work. Don’t sit on the couch channel surfing. Get out there and serve. That brought is to Charity, tithe, join a church and tithe. Serve your neighbors. We are the largest contributors as a Country, we give more than all other countries combined. Give so the people are not owned by the government. And, did I mention he really doesn’t like Woodrow Wilson?”

Here are a few of Julie’s photos from the Glenn Beck event:

Glenn during his presentation

There was a meet and greet with Glenn Beck afterward. Julie and Eddie both described their experience. Per Julie,

“Each person got about 30 seconds with him and there were about 250 people. He was so exhausted. I was in the last group. Poor guy had flown all this distance, spoke all night brilliantly, then had to sign his name 250 times. He made sure he personally shook everyone’s hand. I was given two challenges, one to get a picture of him wearing a club shirt. Well, 30 seconds did not allow that so I decided instead to just give him the shirt for an autograph to be used for fundraising. So,the consolation prize was to have him in a picture with the shirt. The other challenge was to get a picture between my 2 favorite Glenns. That was a no brainer! I did tell him I was president (of the club) and that Sarah and her family were inspiring and that I appreciate him including her tonight.”


For Eddie, it was also a brief encounter. “I’m a member of AA and so is he (Beck)… He said. “It saved my life.” I responded, “Mine too.”

Julie said for her, it was the best day ever. “I was surrounded by American patriots. It gives me hope for a bright future. I met and got pictures with my 2 favorite rock stars, Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck. Our Founding Fathers live in the people I was privileged to participate with today. It was an honor to be part of the CPG event and an honor to shake the hand of a man that is willing to take a stand.”

Although I was not there, I am grateful for the friendships events like these have brought me, and they help me remember what being an American is all about. Faith, Family, Freedom. What more does one need?

Below are a couple of videos that have already been widely circulated on the internet. They are from Nina Stone, a facebook friend of mine who was gracious enough to allow me to use these, even before they went viral.

Murkowski concedes to Sarah Palin backed Joe Miller

Posted by loricalabrese on September 1, 2010

After a bitter contest, a major upset has taken place in Alaska and another incumbent has gone down. Sen. Lisa Murkowski conceded her GOP Senate primary race Tuesday night to Tea Party favorite and Sarah Palin-backed Joe Miller.

Miller, a Fairbanks attorney, led by 1,630 votes after more than 15,000 absentee ballots were counted late Tuesday, a week after the election.

“I don’t see a scenario in which the primary will turn out in my favor,” Murkowski said in her concession speech.

Even though things turned ugly in recent days with Miller accusing Murkowski of vote tampering, and Murkowski saying that Miller was inexperienced and paranoid, Miller is asking Alaskans to come together.

“Now is the time for all Alaskans to come together and reach out with our core message of taking power from the federal government and bringing it back home to the people. If we continue to allow the federal government to live beyond its means, we will all soon have to live below ours,” he said in a statement.

Miller will face Democrat Scott McAdams, mayor of Sitka, Alaska, in the November general election.

“I look forward to the challenge of the general election ahead,” Miller said. “I intend to continue to travel to every corner of Alaska talking to folks about the answers needed to get our nation back on track and keep the American dream alive for ourselves and our children.”

The Alaska Senate Republican Primary Race Heats Up

Posted by loricalabrese on September 1, 2010

Sarah Palin-backed Joe Miller came out of nowhere and challenged incumbent Senator Lisa Murkowski in the Alaska Senate Republican primary. But as votes are still being counted with Miller in the lead, the primary is getting downright ugly.

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski said Monday her Republican rival Joe Miller may be creating doubt in the minds of Alaskans about the integrity of the voting process by ratcheting up the hyperbole about possible election fraud. She also stated that Miller also may be positioning himself to challenge the results if they break her way.

“It just seems that in the week since the election, it has just continued to be yet one more hype, one more mischaracterization, one more just trumped up rhetoric, that leaves people to think there’s some kind of subterfuge or some kind of shenanigans going on,” she said.

An attorney for the Miller campaign, Thomas Van Flein, who’s also Sarah Palin’s attorney, formally asked Lt. Gov. Craig Campbell for an investigation into possible tampering by an observer for the Murkowski campaign.

In a letter, Van Flein claimed the observer at the Mat-Su Division of Elections accessed a state computer for about 20 minutes on Friday while absentee ballots were being verified. Van Flein said the observer may have copied voter information.

He questioned whether a hand-count of the absentee ballots should be required, or at least a review of the computer. He also requested Lt. Gov. Craig Campbell post Alaska State Troopers at counting offices.

“I am really astounded that the Miller camp seems to be so paranoid of every step along the way, which is designed to ensure that every Alaska vote is counted,” Murkowski told The Associated Press.

Tuesday afternoon on FOX News, Miller responded to Murkowski’s accusations. “The only way we’d ever challenge is if there is evidence of tampering,” Miller said. “It’s unfortunate that we’re hearing that kind of rhetoric.”

Miller holds a 1,688-vote lead over incumbent Murkowski in the Republican primary and the Alaska Division of Elections is scheduled to begin counting many of the 25,510 absentee, questioned and early ballots Tuesday, with possible results coming in Tuesday night.

Sarah Palin Most Influential Republican in America

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 25, 2010

After Governor Palin’s winning streak yesterday, with 4 of her 5 endorsees winning and the 5th likely to win, the Internet was abuzz today about Governor Palin’s clout as a GOP kingmaker.

David A. Patten at NewsMax had this to say:

Incumbent GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s stunning setback in Alaska sends a powerful message to political insiders in both parties: Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is now the GOP’s clear No. 1 kingmaker.

Upstart candidate Joe Miller, who made a lightning-fast rise in the polls following Palin’s endorsement and robo calls, credited Palin for his primary shocker.

“I’m absolutely certain that was pivotal,” he told The Anchorage Daily News.

With an estimated 98 percent of the vote tallied — and with thousands of absentee ballots yet to be counted — Miller leads Murkowski by 1,960 votes.

Political pundits suggest the outcome elevates Palin to unique status within the Republican Party.

“Clearly Sarah Palin is the most influential Republican in America,” Democratic pollster and Fox News commentator Douglas Schoen tells Newsmax. “That much is clear as the primary season winds down. And Palin clearly is the candidate who will generate the most enthusiasm if she runs in 2012.”

Miller appeared to come out of nowhere in the campaign’s closing days. A poll that RT Nielsen released Friday showed Murkowski still leading Miller by a strong margin, 47 percent to 35 percent.

[…]

Nor is her influence seen as limited to her home state — her endorsement was considered a key factor in shoring up Sen. John McCain’s right flank in his primary victory Tuesday over former Congressman J.D. Hayworth in Arizona.

“Looks like Miller won,” political analyst and Fox News commentator Dick Morris tells Newsmax. “Palin’s victory in Alaska is very impressive.

“She had defeated Murkowski’s father for governor in a Republican primary, and just defeated the daughter in a Senate primary,” Morris says. “I think she also played a key role in helping build but sentiment about McCain moving to the right, and tying him in with the tea party movement. She made him look like less of a RINO. Both wins demonstrate her power.”

Commentator and syndicated columnist Patrick J. Buchanan called the result “astonishing” on MSNBC Wednesday morning.

“Lisa Murkowski is a fairly popular senator from Alaska who settled in,” he said. “And after the death of Ted Stevens, it looked like she was a winner.
And Sarah Palin steps in, and this fella who’s relatively unknown nationally, is known in Alaska, can put him not only in the competition but maybe into the Senate race itself — this is very, very dramatic.”

Jason Horowitz at the Washington Post wrote:

Palin may have withdrawn from official life in Alaska, but the surprisingly strong showing in Tuesday’s GOP Senate primary by Joe Miller, the long-shot candidate she backed over Lisa Murkowski, made it clear to the entire country that she still exercises great influence in her home state.

[…]

This matters for Palin’s aspirations outside of Alaska, too.

Alaska is central to the political imagery, folksy charm and outsider credentials of Palin. In her introductory speech to national politics during the Republican National Convention she referred to herself as a “gal who knows the North Slope of Alaska.” The bus she rode across the country on her book tour featured Palin beaming in front of Alaska’s snowcapped mountains and spruce-spotted hills. More recently, she coined the term “mama grizzlies” to describe women who want to protect the nation from “fundamental transformation,” because there are grizzly bears “in Alaska.” Her upcoming TV show is called “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”

By endorsing Miller on Facebook, boosting him on Twitter and making robo-calls for him against the heavily favored establishment candidate, Palin risked sacrificing the founding pillar of her political creation myth. Instead, preliminary results from Tuesday’s election showed Miller ahead, 45,909 votes to 43,949 votes. According to the Alaska Division of Elections, more than 16,000 absentee ballots were requested and fewer than half had been returned. Whether he ultimately prevailed or not was beside the point. Palin, whose presidential and political aspirations are still undetermined, had demonstrated that the strength of her base is not.

“Within conservative politics in Alaska she is still a very formidable force,” Miller said in a recent interview. “She’s certainly a net positive to any candidate running for office.”

[…]

Murkowski, who was vexed by Palin’s endorsement of Miller, which was widely seen as motivated not just by Todd Palin’s friendship with Miller but by Palin’s dislike of the Murkowski family, had sought to put it more diplomatically.

“If you ask Alaskans, they will talk about all of the politicians that represent them,” Murkowski said during a July campaign swing to North Pole, outside of Fairbanks. Her father, Frank Murkowski, lost the governor’s mansion to Palin in 2006. “This is the first election since Governor Palin has stepped down from office, and it’s her first series of elections across the country where she has weighed in, and it remains to be seen how that will play out in the state.”

Not anymore.

From governor to kingmaker?

Last July, Palin announced that she would be abandoning the governor’s mansion to protect the state from the costs of politically motivated lawsuits against her. Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell, she said, would be inaugurated at the Governor’s Picnic at Pioneer Park in Fairbanks on July 25. Next, she signed on with Fox, launched the book tour, raised PAC money and bestowed endorsements on like-minded candidates.

[…]

“It’s clear that there are a lot of people in the state that support and respect Sarah Palin since the presidential race,” Miller said. “It is equally clear that there are folk that no longer support her.”

“There is a ruling family and that has been reflected in the generational politics of the Murkowski family. Lisa’s appointment by her father reflects that. It’s power perpetuated not just by family but by special interests,” he said. “Palin is absolutely outside of that. She certainly came from outside of that mold when she ran for governor. In fact it was her campaign that cracked the establishment.”

[…]

Palin made an appearance with other Alaskan dignitaries at the funeral of Ted Stevens this month, but for the most part, the former governor lays low. Her house is hidden by a tall brown fence Palin erected for privacy after a reporter rented the home next door. An impressive white satellite dish rises above the studio where Palin can do her live television hits. And at the foot of the gravel road leading to Palin’s house, there is a large Joe Miller campaign billboard.

Lloyd Marcus Campaigns for Joe Miller in Alaska

Posted by Dr. Fay on August 22, 2010

Lloyd Marcus, whose rendition of  “Sarah Smile” (see also here) endeared him to Sarah Palin supporters during the 2008 campaign, is campaigning with the Tea Party Express for Joe Miller in Alaska.   Other memorable songs by Marcus include “Our Girls” and the American Tea Party Anthem.  Marcus worked tirelessly with the Tea Party Express campaign in 2008.

Here are excerpts from Marcus’s excellent article posted at The American Thinker today:

Tea Party Express asked me to join them in Alaska to assist in their final push for conservative Joe Miller for U.S. Senate. I sang and spoke at rallies in Wasilla, Fairbanks and Anchorage, Alaska. 
  
The weather in Alaska was mild, mid 60s. It was my first time in Alaska and I enjoyed sourdough pancakes with reindeer sausage. I was most impressed with the people I met who attended the rallies. Most were families, large families averaging from three to eight kids. 
  
The age of the children at the rallies ranged from infants to 17. They were well behaved, bright, poised and seemingly happy. I began asking the parents, “Are your kids home schooled?” Every parent said, “Yes”. “I knew it”, I replied. 
  
The characteristics I have noticed for years in home schooled children are that they are centered, smart and poised. 
 
I asked the parents at the Alaska Joe Miller rallies, “Home schooling is a huge commitment. Why do you do it?” Every parent said, yes, home schooling is a huge commitment. But the anti-God, America and traditional conservative values agenda of the public school system left them no choice.
 

[…]

I felt the same kinship with my Alaskan tea party patriot brothers and sisters I have felt at hundreds of tea parties across the lower 48 states. Our divinely inspired tea party movement is not about race. It is about shared conservative values and love for America. All who feel this way are my brothers and sisters; skin color is irrelevant.
 
Joe Miller is great guy. He is a father, husband, successful businessman, a true conservative and extremely qualified for the U.S. Senate. Tea Party Express is endorsing and campaigning for Joe rather than the RINO Republican in the race. So much for the accusation that Tea Party Express is all about getting Republicans elected. Wrong! Tea Party Express is a powerful voice of “We The People” totally focused and committed to getting conservatives elected. This is why I am extremely proud and honored to be associated with them and to campaign for the peoples’ candidate, Joe Miller. (http://www.joemiller.us/)
 

[…]

While in Alaska, I visited the Alyeska Pipeline and the North Pole. We visited Santa Claus’ house where reindeer were grazing in the fenced area beside his charming home.
Inside, excited kids were sitting on Santa’s lap placing their early bird requests for Christmas gifts. Santa walked away for a coffee break. 
 
Despite being chastised by my wife, I took the big book from behind Santa’s beautiful antique chair. I had to take a peek inside. 
 
On the “Nice” list was Alaska U.S. Senate conservative candidate, Joe Miller. On the “Naughty” list was Joe’s opponent, arrogant, RINO republican candidate, Lisa Murkowski. For her long record of betraying the people who voted for her, 300 floor votes with Democrats, this naughty girl is so getting her stocking full of coal.
 
Trying to read as much as possible before Santa returned and with my nervous wife nagging me to put the book back, I saw the names of numerous democrats who will not be happy this Christmas starting in November.
 
Little Maxine Walters, shame on you for doing unethical things. Then, you displayed your further lack of character by calling those who discovered your crime racist and accusing George Bush of forcing you to commit the crime. Very naughty. 
 
The liberal mainstream media were also well represented on Santa’s Naughty list. Seems they attempted to shamefully brand the hard working decent Americans of the tea party movement as “redneck” racists against a black president. According to an ad my wife read in the North Pole Times, Santa is hiring extra elves specifically to stuff coal in the stockings of all the liberal mainstream media.
 
My Alaska trip was wonderful; breathtakingly beautiful with warm and friendly salt of the earth people. Only 650,000 people live there. Many Alaskans grow and hunt their food. There is a smell of freedom in the Alaska air. It reminds us of the importance of electing conservatives like Joe Miller who seek to preserve our freedoms rather Obama-ites who strive daily to take our freedoms away. https://secure.donationsafe.com/jms/

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.

Endorsement: Joe Miller for US Senate

Posted by Dr. Fay on July 23, 2010

By Tracey Porreca – Finding Myself In Alaska

Recently I was asked if I would endorse Joe Miller for US Senate in Alaska. Those of you who follow my blog know that my resounding answer was “YES!” Here is my endorsement:

“There are many ways to describe Joe Miller – West Point Graduate, decorated war veteran, Alaskan by choice, attorney, magistrate, father, husband, and conservative. These alone speak volumes about the man who is the right choice for Alaska. Joe’s life experiences and true desire to lead Alaska, and this country, in a positive and conservative direction make him the only choice for US Senate in Alaska. That is why as an informed conservative Alaskan, I am voting for Joe Miller and I strongly encourage you to as well.”

You can find my endorsement, along with many other prominent individuals (including Governor Palin), on the Miller campaign’s endorsement page here.

I will be marching with the Miller campaign at the Golden Days Celebration in Fairbanks, Alaska on Saturday, July 24. If you’re a Joe Miller supporter and in the area, please join us and march with us in the parade! Please follow this link to the events page for information on when and where to meet. See you there!
