    It should be coming up soon. Just Google Murkowski run, in a couple of days. The real news agencies, which leaves out FOX, should be reporting it when it happens.

    Um...It's not the "teabaggers" who are the ones splitting the vote....In many cases, they're the ones wining the nominations.

    It's sore loser crybabies who just can't stand the thought of losing political power, who won't just go away, doing so...Exactly the kind of squishy, mealy-mouthed, wuss douchebags the GOP needs to get shed of.

    So instead of backing your candidate for thier own ideas, hope that a schism in the other party lets your candidate win by default. Excellent way to govern, no matter what side tries it.

    Not the case in the New York special election a while back. You know the one. It was an easy "R" pick up until Palin and the Tea Party got involved.

    That's why I said "most".

    But even that example kind of flails, as Hoffman wasn't the ousted incumbent or loser in a primary....He just decided to run as an indy form the get-go.

    FWIW, I throw Joe Lieberman in the "just go away you sore loser" category as well.

    You obviously don't know much about "him", do you PudYank?....:lol:



    BTW, from what I've read the deadline to be on the November ballot in Alaska was June 10th, so unless Murkowski finds or manufactures some votes to overtake Miller, it's all over but the crying...


    Congrats to Miller if his lead holds up...:clap2:
