Is Murkowski Going The Write-In Route?

The Libertarian path seems to be a dead end but it looks like she's not giving up yet.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski is strongly considering a mounting a November write-in campaign to keep her seat and could make an announcement as soon as tomorrow, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Running as a write-in candidate appears to be Murkowski’s last remaining option. The Senate Republican Conference Vice Chairwoman met with Libertarian Party nominee David Haase on Tuesday to discuss taking his spot on the ballot, but according to a party spokesman, even if Haase dropped out, the party’s executive board — which last week voted against allowing Murkowski on the ballot — does not appear amenable to changing its decision.

Should Murkowski pull the trigger on a write-in campaign, GOP sources say she would face opposition from the National Republican Senatorial Committee. The NRSC endorsed Joe Miller immediately after Murkowski conceded the primary, and the GOP committee intends to stick with the Fairbanks attorney and provide him with the full weight of its backing.

She keeps saying she's not a quitter but that's not the issue. You lost idiot. It's not quitting if you go home once the game is over.

Looks like Joe Miller is going to need some help.

Somehow the write in campaign is even more offensive than a switch to a 3rd party. As far as I can find, only Strom Thurmond ever actually won a write in campaign for the Senate.

This is just a woman who is terribly afraid of losing a title she thinks she is entitled to by birth. We really need to flush out the people in office who are so insane to think the republic will fall without their presence on the payroll.

Good Lord, this is like trying to break up with the psycho-bitch of a girlfriend and she keeps calling all of your friends and relatives to beg them to help her make you take her back.

Which reminded me of this.

Stay strong Alaska. You can get rid of her.
