Republicans Must Remove Lisa Murkowski From The Energy Committee

isa Murkowski is going to run a write-in campaign against Joe Miller, the Republican Senate nominee, in Alaska.Murkowski, during the primary against Joe Miller, used her ranking status on the Senate Energy Committee as a key selling point.Murkowski is no longer the Republican nominee and is running against the Republican nominee, forcing the GOP to spend money in Alaska it might otherwise not need to.The GOP leadership in Washington made a big deal out of removing Murkowski from the Senate GOP leadership, but that is all for show.If the Republican Party is serious about supporting Joe Miller, the GOP must remove Lisa Murkowski from her ranking position on the energy committee. They must take that selling point away from her.If the GOP does not, one can hardly blame the grassroots for thinking Senate Republicans are yet again willing to betray their base.
