ANOTHER RINO SCUMBAG: Incumbent sore loser to launch desperate bid to keep power

UPDATE The AP reports: [U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski] told supporters — who greeted her at an Anchorage convention center with chants of “Run, Lisa, Run!” — that she couldn’t walk away and ignore the pleas of Alaskans who urged her to offer them a choice between the “extremist” views of Miller, a self-described constitutional conservative and tea party favorite, and the “inexperience” of Democrat Scott McAdams, a small-town mayor.

“So I am here to tell you, you are disenfranchised no more,” she said.

Most don’t remember how Murkowski got to the Senate in the first place. Her father, then Governor of Alaska appointed her in 2002 to his seat after he won the Governorship. It caused an uproar in Alaska and because of this action, Governors can no longer appoint Senators to vacant seats.

She won one election and that was in 2004 which wasn’t difficult in Alaska. She is part of the ‘old boy’ network that freedom loving Alaskans have a huge distaste.

Her write in campaign will be a joke and as the others have said, she just needs to go away.

Lisa Murkowski may have conceded the Republican primary election to tea party favorite and Sarah Palin-backed Joe Miller, but she’s not out of the race yet. Sources close to the Senator are now saying she plans to mount a write-in campaign in a last-ditch effort to hold onto her seat in the U.S. Senate.

A Republican source tells CNN that Sen. Murkowski has informed “a few” close colleagues on the hill that she will run as a write-in candidate. A separate source with knowledge of her decision also tells CNN she plans to announce her write-in candidacy Friday.

With Murkowski re-entering the race, what was considered a near-certain win for Republicans may be in jeopardy. The announcement will reportedly happen at 6:00 p.m. local time in Anchorage (10:00 p.m. ET).

In an email to Murkowski supporters, Bonnie Jack, a campaign volunteer, asked supporters to “Join us at the Kick-off of Senator Lisa’s campaign — with a theme of ‘write in her name and fill in the oval.’” READ MORE...
