Our colleagues over at Time always have interesting things to say. Here's what we're reading at the Ticker:
Jay Newton-Small has a piece on Time's Swampland blog on the write-in candidacy of Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski– reported from the Senator's home state of Alaska. Murkowski is the 800-pound gorilla in the room that the two other candidates, who are officially on the ballot, are taking very seriously.
And California is on the mind of Adam Sorenson who writes for Time.com about whether the Republicans can win the Governor's mansion and a Senate seat in California this November.
I cannot believe that Murkowski could not get a hundred thousand labels with her name on it to the voters of Alaska. Miller could be toast.
Yeah, good luck "McKowski" with that write-in senate campaign.
If your own campaign commercials can't get your name right (and they're freaking PAID to do so), how do you expect the average voter to do it?
Sure they can win if they continue to buy their way in.
Brilliant.......... ALL ousted Moderate-Republicans need to run as Independents, to make sure the loony Teabaggers don't get into office!
I will take Murkowski over Miller any day!
