Lisa Murkowski, With the votes counted is still in Alaska, the Republican Party primary Frontier State Senate seems anything but to give birth to Sarah Palin-lite, Tea Party, backed by Joe Miller as the Republican candidate for the Senate. Sen. Lisa Murkowski corresponds to the potential loss can be a hard pill to swallow everything.

When Sarah Palin Fairbanks attorney Joe Miller catapulted onto the national scene in a Facebook post in June, the upstart conservative candidate appeared to have only a remote chance against the political legacy of the Murkowskis, a family who knew Sarah Palin.

The rivalry between Palin and Murkowski policy launched famous when Palin was denied the opportunity to inherit the seat in the Senate of the father of Lisa Murkowski, Frank, when he was elected governor in 2002. The then governor. Murkowski chose his own daughter to take the post instead. In 2006, however, Palin took revenge when he ousted Murkowski in the Republican primary for governor and eventually won the election. When she gave up that role as governor just two years into his term last summer, maybe Murkowski reignited the flames of hostility when Palin criticized for having “decided to leave the State.”

And so the background of the rivalry between Palin and Murkowski had always existed in this competition close, though lay mostly dormant until Sarah (and Todd) Palin was Facebook again last Friday and heated to rhetoric in a matter of aggressive fundraising.

After repeatedly attacking “Murkowski liberal” voting record and considering its a “RINO Senate,” Palin wrote: “Let’s raise to 1,000 for each of the 30 years, this seat in the Senate has been blocked by Murkowski family. The only way our state to reach its potential, and to save our country, is to elect reformers to fight for Alaska and America everything and stand up against the liberal agenda in Washington. ”

Murkowski could not take it personally.

“The tone was directed against me instead of reasons why you should support Joe,” Murkowski said of the Beast Shushannah Walshe newspaper in an interview. “But she put a little dig about my family there, and you can not help but notice when he says that encouraged people to horse, basically, to raise $ 1,000 to $ 30,000, who want to win and would have been Miller 1000 dollars to the family 30 years locked Murkowski Alaska …. Suddenly, it was like, wait a minute, if you’re taking me I do not think that is sufficiently conservative is one thing, but now suggesting that Frank Murkowski was not conservative enough and why is it looping? suddenly became a little more personal. ”

Murkowski said Palin more directly Tuesday night, telling the Anchorage Daily News: “I think she is out for their own interest. I do not think she is out of the interests of Alaska.”

Senator Murkowski also lamented recent recording of one of Palin robocall late Miller, saying “do not feel like a campaign that was in charge of Alaska”, the Daily News.

Wherever the campaign is run from, have produced an election, that is, from now, still too close to call.
