Week-ending Update:

The Alaskan Review

Week-ending update:

Glenn Beck was in the state today, and along with Sarah Palin held an event. It was small by either ones standards, only 4500 tickets, and all but 700 of those have been sold. ticket ranged in price from $74 - $225. It was interesting to note though, the AP devoted a full 124 words of 382 to the subject of the 60 protesters outside. thats a full third of the story(32%).

edit: looks like the story over at the AP has changed! The story is now 122 words longer with the caption: "THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below."

More Rumblings that Murkowski could run on a separate ticket or as a write-in candidate. The Wall-Street Journal reports that the Libertarian Party is in talks with Murkowski. Steve Wackowski, Murkowski's spokesman, said a decision could come by next week. Look for it early in the week if it does come... press releases from campaigns tend to be that way.... :) The Miller campaign points to a conversation with the Murkowski campaign that both candidates would come together after the primary "so the Republicans would have a unified front". Interestingly, and very intelligently, Scott McAdams is keeping his mouth shut and not saying much recently. His plan of letting the GOP hang themselves may just work if Murkowski stays in the race and divides the vote.
