Run Lisa Run!

I don't like to get too political on this blog, but every once in a while you just can't separate the best interest of the Alaska Gas Pipeline project from the political scene. Senator Lisa Murkowski serves as a ranking member on the Energy and Natural Resources committee. She's well positioned to help the gas pipeline. The tea bagging guy? A nobody in Washington - zero stroke zero pull.

Good Luck Lisa!

Question: She's running as a write-in. She's already been pulled from rank as a Republican. Does that affect any pull she might have in the Senate?

Who knows - Joseph Lieberman maintained his seat on several committees after he parted ways with his party. I think Lisa is sideways with the party and lost some positions within the party, but maintains (and will maintain) her committee positions in the Senate.
It's all negotiable.

Like I said

"In a surprise move, Senate Republicans did not vote to drop one of their own, Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, as top Republican on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee."

Sweet - it's on
