Another Alaska GOP Mailer Ties Joe Miller To Hillary Clinton

This is the second mailer paid for by the Alaska Republican Party (ARP) in the last week attempting to tie the circumstances surrounding Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate Joe Miller’s departure from the Fairbanks North Star Borough in 2008 to the scandal surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to store emails while she was Secretary of State.








What Republican Attack Mailers On Joe Miller Tell Us

Evaluating these mailers to see what the party’s key messages are against Miller is interesting enough. It can reveal where they think Miller is vulnerable, what voters the ARP thinks they can peel away from him, and any number of other insights into their thinking us political junkies might find interesting.

Miller, however, gave us quite a gift on Monday. As part of his press conference attacking the ARP for alleged financial improprieties, Miller showed a series of mailers the ARP did in 2010 supporting him as the party’s nominated candidate and attacking then write-in candidate Lisa Murkowski.







Scoring The Attack: Joe Miller vs. The Republican Party

This is a rarity, normally when we score political attacks, one side is clearly the attacker and one side clearly the target. In this case, we have more of an exchange of fire as the Alaska Republican Party and Libertarian candidate for US Senate, Joe Miller traded similar “financial irregularity” charges against one another. Deciding who actually came out the winner might be more complicated to sort out.
