It could be one of the biggest blow to Sarah Palin & Jim Demint the GOP has given up on Joe Miller and are now backing Lisa Murkowski for the Alaska Senate. As many of you know Miller a tanked over the last two weeks after he lied about improperly using government computers for political purposes while a borough attorney in 2008. He was disciplined and took responsibility for what his superior considered an isolated incident.
ABC's Jonathan Karl reports
The nightmare scenario for Republicans is that McAdams comes in second on Election Day, trailing "write-in candidate." Those write-in votes won't be counted unless there are more write-in votes than there are votes for any candidate on the ballot. Once the write-in votes are counted, however, some of them will inevitably be disqualified (illegible writing, wrong name, etc.). And a small number will be for candidates other than Murkowski. If enough are tossed out, second place McAdams would be the winner.
The latest polls show that it's a toss up but if you notice right now the GOP is in panic mode. Let help Scott get to the finish line.
