Republicans Give Up on Alaska's Joe Miller


The words "nightmare scenario for Republicans" make me all tingly. Via Taegan-

Jonathan Karl of ABC News: "A high-level GOP source tells me party leaders have essentially given up on Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller and are now banking on a victory by write-in candidate Lisa Murkowski as the best bet for Republicans to keep the Alaska Senate seat... With Miller's campaign faltering, the source tells me that Republican leaders are now worried that Democrat Scott McAdams has a shot of winning and that Murkowski may be the only way to stop him."

"The nightmare scenario for Republicans is that McAdams comes in second... trailing 'write-in candidate.'... If enough are tossed out, second place McAdams would be the winner."
