Murkowski takes aim at Tea Party Express in ad

Posted: Friday, October 01, 2010

A new TV ad by U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski takes aim at a national tea party group days before it's set to return to Alaska to support her GOP rival.

The statewide ad features people talking about the role the California-based Tea Party Express played in the GOP primary and vowing not to be "fooled" again.

The group reported spending over $550,000 to help Joe Miller upset Murkowski. It made claims about Murkowski's record that she called distortions or lies.

Murkowski's now running a write-in campaign, and the group has pledged to do whatever it takes to defeat her; it plans to launch a campaign supporting Miller Monday.

Murkowski spokesman Steve Wackowski says the campaign isn't afraid to throw the first punches this go-round.
