Looks like the College Republicans in Alaska are stamping their widdle feet.
A little over a week ago, the College Republicans at the University of Alaska Anchorage held a meet-and-greet for U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski at a bar in downtown Anchorage. Former Sen. Ted Stevens was there, there was free food (though a cash bar), and according to reports a good time was had by all.What's the worst a CR could do to you? Scratch your face? Throw a gerbil on you?
But the Joe Miller campaign, which is gunning for Murkowski's seat, didn't see it that way. Early Sunday morning Paul Bauer, Miller's campaign manager, posted an angry note to the College Republicans' Facebook page ripping them for their "endorsement of one candidate over another during a PRIMARY race." Bauer wrote that the students had "failing grades" in research, common sense, and true conservative principles and values.
The young GOPers were pissed. In an e-mail, Jeremiah Campbell, the group's spokesman, told Bauer the group didn't appreciate his "false accusations." Campbell ended his e-mail with "Please call my cell phone immediately if you have a backbone."
(Note: Ted Stevens, mentioned in the first paragraph, recently died in a plane crash. We wish his family the best in getting past this terrible time.)
