Ad of the day: Murkowski lays into Tea Party Express
Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R) is free of her Republican party establishment restraints and has declared open season on the tea party with a new ad.
The ad features constituents talking about the Tea Party Express's having spent millions on Republican nominee Joe Miller's behalf. "Well, who's Senate seat would it be -- Alaska's or California's?" asks one voter, alluding to the fact that the Tea Party Express is headquartered in Sacramento. Another voter goes on to call the Tea Party Express's spending in the state a "dirty money bomb" while another claims Alaskans are "on to them now" The ad ends with a series of constituents spelling out Murkowski's name -- the spelling of which Alaskans are likely to hear often between now and November.
The ad is one of two the campaign launched on YouTube on Wednesday. The other ad, "Murkowski Spelling Clinic 101," is a light-hearted attempt to educate voters on how to spell Murkowski's name.
