It looks like Democratic Senate candidate in Alaska, Scott McAdams, has gotten the attention of the Republican Party, the corporations, and the national media.  (heh, heh)

First this week the Alaska Federation of Natives (AFN) canceled the scheduled candidate forum for Alaska Senate candidates.  Apparently the corporate leadership didn't want to chance having their members hear Scott McAdams talk about Tribal sovereignty, his support of Native language and culture in schools, and his plans to help reduce energy costs in rural villages.

And today, we get the following report from the Hill stating that it would be a "disaster" for the GOP if there were a Democratic win in the Senate race in Alaska, according to R-John Cornyn, chair of National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC).  I hope the DSCC is paying attention.

It would be a "disaster" for Republicans to lose the Alaska Senate race, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) said Thursday.

Cornyn, the chairman of the National Senatorial Campaign Committee (NRSC), said it'd be a poor sign for the GOP if a split field led to Democratic candidate Scott McAdams winning the state's Senate race.

"Frankly, that would be a disaster for us, if the Democrats won Alaska," Cornyn said during an appearance on MSNBC...

McAdams has now raised over $1 million, mostly from small donations from regular folks in Alaska, and even Miller and Murky supporters are having a hard time finding anything negative to say about him.

Just want to say a big thanks to all who have helped with this campaign--with your positive comments, with your donations, with your diaries.

Two weeks to go.  Let's bring it on home.

Yours truly,
A rural Alaskan who strongly supports McAdams

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
