Lisa Murkowski Now Faces Joe Miller….Again

;

According to a posting on Alaska Libertarian Party candidate for U.S. Senate Cean Steven’s personal Facebook page this afternoon, she is dropping out of the race and 2010 Alaska Republican Party nominee for the same office Joe Miller is stepping in.

Joe Miller also posted a statement to his campaign page/personal blog:

This move completely upends a race that until now looked all but settled. Just last week The Midnight Sun posted new polling data showing Murkowski with a 40+ point lead over her raft of opponents.

State tuned to this page for updates throughout the day. We are expecting a statement from Murkowski’s campaign anytime.

Begich Update


Technically, there is still time for the Democrats to get Ray Metcalfe to drop out and switch in Mark Begich to run against Murkowski and Miller.
We just talked with Begich and he said such a switch out isn’t happening :(
Can we interest anyone in a write-in rumor?

***UPDATE***

According to the Federal Elections Commission, Joe Miller still has almost $100K in his campaign account to begin his run this time around:

    So will we see Mark Begich and other prominent Democrats endorse Margaret Stock soon, or will they stay on the sidelines?
