Murkowski Names Democrats As Those She Most Admires in Senate

Anchorage, Alaska. October 12, 2010 — Joe Miller, the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate, made the following statement today in response to Lisa Murkowski’s recent comments on admiring Democrats in the Senate:

“Washington Democrats have moved our nation in the wrong direction. Instead of listening to the American people Democrats have passed massive spending proposals, government run health care, and bailouts that burden our children and grandchildren. This is unacceptable. I find it unfathomable that Lisa Murkowski would look to the misguided Democrats of Washington, D.C. for leadership.

“The people of Alaska have a simple choice on November 2nd. They can re-elect their current Senator who represents more of the same or they can elect someone that will fight the Washington establishment to cut spending and bring much needed jobs back to Alaska.”

When asked at the Anchorage Chamber Forum Debate yesterday who she admires most in the Senate, Lisa Murkowski named Democrats Sen. Tom Carper and Sen. Jeff Bingaman, both of whom voted for the TARP bailouts, last year’s $787 billion stimulus bill, and ObamaCare earlier this year.
