Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) Declares Write-in Campaign and calls Joe Miller's Views "Extremist"

Alaskan Republican voters rejected Sen. Lisa Murkowski for being too much of a RINO. She reacts by proving their point and declaring an Independent write-in campaign this November. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) has effectively ended her political career in the Republican Party.

The Hill reported:
Declaring that Alaska “cannot accept the extremist views of Joe Miller,” Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said Friday that she intends to run as an independent write-in candidate this November.

Murkowski called her decision “a difficult one,” but cited “an outpouring of support from Alaskans all over the state” as a primary driver of her decision.
