Write in candidate won a senate race is back -- -- -- -- -- Strom Thurmond holds about member of that course.
-- now Alaska Republican senator Lisa Murkowski is desperately hoping to do the same even -- terrorists hurting her party and the guy.
Who beat over her party's nomination now saying at this the Republican leaders have turned their back on our.
And that it's no longer about the quality of the cabinet.
With me now is the guys he's talking about when she mentions the quality of the candidate.
Joseph Miller mr.
Miller what do you think of that.
I thought well no I I think that they got voters in Alaska are the best that god has to do the most qualified candidate -- You know you might recall that you start up got her -- -- are not the voters.
Yet and I might add also that -- -- this primary election.
We have the largest number Republican voters of any past election in the history primary history of the state.
We received over 101000 more votes than what the senator received in 2004.
When she's not.
Going quietly into the night to go I mean many argue that she could hurt.
The last his chances of of getting a Republican senator.
Well we know she's not going caught quietly and we also know that she intends to run this campaign and in kind of a -- fashion.
About you know frankly Alaska's are smarter than that it were common sense people up here we know what she's gone she just can't let go power.
And Alaska are excited about the message of hope that this campaign has stopped running -- the state as I've told you before we're very dependent on federal funding and yet we've got.
The world's I think richest natural resources beneath our feet.
And if only the federal government would get out of our backyard.
We could move the state forward I think the nation forward.
Are you worried though that this shows his serious schism within the Republican Party then we -- example -- last week's primary elections whether they.
Be in Delaware and New York where.
The heavily favored Republican.
-- -- In other words that now the dirty laundry is out and in Alaska and Anglican to impress.
I guess you call this goes on but really have an election process crosses cross country.
If reflected the candidates -- I think embrace really frankly the platform of the party and are also the nominees for the parties so.
-- some of these folk won't go quietly into the night as you -- it but they're doing so without the backing of the party.
They're doing this on their own accord and I think in the case of of the senator it's just like many other liberals they just can't release their hold on power.
You know the rap against Tea Party backed candidates -- -- slap on human.
The argument and maybe it's a new friend argument now among.
-- I was democratic and Republican -- -- that you guys announced parents.
They're coming in -- -- -- fights to power and you don't have a place works now that's helped do in the campaign process.
But it's going to be a cold hard reality.
If and when you get elected.
That there's no doubt they all but there's a lot of hard work out there in the future not of us are thinking about hey we go to DC.
All of a sudden things change what we do know is were absolutely committed to change the way that government is run were absolutely committed to reversing the growth of government.
An exciting thing about it is there a lot of vote there in DC right now the read the writing on the wall they know that the American people are demanding something different.
And that's exciting thing about us it's not just -- the new candidates it's also are marginal effect on those that are there.
So let's closely thank you for -- the dominated a very busy campaign schedule Joseph Miller.
By the way we did call.
