The Republican base is sick of career politicians who wear the Republican label out of convenience, not conviction or loyalty. RINO Lisa Murkowski has shown her true colors and declared herself as a write-in candidate. Her chances of winning as a write-in are slim and none. However, she could take a few votes from the GOP candidate Alaska attorney Joe Miller. Miller is a fine Conservative candidate and expected to win. He is a West Point graduate, Yale graduate and has experience as a judge. Miller will most likely win with Murkowski in the race and would have coasted to victory without her interference. Lisa Murkowski has put ego and sour grapes above the interests of Alaska and the GOP. She is a traitor to her party and should be banished to the ash heap of history.
“What happened in my particular race, you had the Tea Party Express, this California-based group, come in at the last minute in a campaign, run a mudslinging, smear - just a terrible, terrible - campaign with lies and fabrications and mischaracterizations,” Murkowski told CNN’s Candy Crowley in an exclusive interview. “They came in, dumped $600,000 into a small market here in Alaska, and they absolutely clearly influenced the outcome.”
By the way, she apparently doesn't care what her former friends in the Republican Party think.
Speaking on CNN, the Alaska Republican said she is not concerned with making the Republican leadership happy.
Murkowski was considered one of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's top aides. McConnell has been forced to tell her to "move on."
