Victory at last!  From CNN:

Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski conceded late Tuesday to Tea Party-backed candidate Joe Miller in Alaska’s GOP Senate primary.

"We know that we still have outstanding votes to count in this primary, but based on where we are right now, I don’t see a scenario where the primary will turn out in my favor," Murkowski told reporters in Anchorage. "I am now conceding the race for the Republican nomination.”

….The winner of the GOP primary is considered to be the favorite in the November general election against Sitka Mayor Scott McAdams, the Democratic nominee.

I’m glad that the Alaska Libertarian Party decided not to sell out, closing the door to Murkowski still running if she lost the primary.  A great win for the Tea Party movement and proves that Sarah Palin still wields political clout in her home state.

  1. You people are certifiably insane. Radicals on both side and nothing gets done as a result. Mourn the loss of the moderates who can come together to actually move forward. You can get something down and get part of what you want, or nothing down with all you want. I can’t understand how the tea party can’t see through the trees. This comes from a Republican voter and without a doubt, if Alaskan, would have voted for Lisa Murkowski.
