The decision by Lisa Murkowski to mount a write-in campaign to cling to her Senate seat is just another example of how bad she has been for conservatives.

How Bad is Lisa Murkowski?

By Bruce Walker at American Thinker


‘In 2004, a strongly Republican year, Lisa Murkowski struggled to win election to a full Senate term with a paltry 48.62% of the popular vote.  That is the only time Lisa has faced the voters of Alaska in a general election.  So, running in a Republican state, in a Republican year, as an incumbent senator, as a member of the political party which controlled the Senate, and as a member of a famous political family in Alaska, Lisa Murkowski could not even get a majority of Alaskans to vote for her.’

‘How does Lisa Murkowski compare to other Republican senators from the Rocky Mountain region? Against her 68% ACU voting record, the other Republican senators in the region have these ACU voting records: Ensign (WY) 100%, Barasso (WY) 100%, Crapo (ID) 92%, Risch (ID) 96%, Hatch (UT) 88%, Bennett (UT) 84%, Ensign (NV) 100%, Kyl (AZ) 92%, and McCain (AZ) 96%. Lisa was much less conservative than Senator McCain, the archetypical RINO or Senator Bennett, the Utah Republican denied re-nomination this year. Lisa Murkowski, not Joe Miller, is out of touch with voters in the region.’
