Murcowski is not an independent, despite the fact that she should have been forced out of the party for a write-in campaign (goes against official party rules).
That said, she may try to avoid a primary defeat by switching before 2016.

I would think Kirk would retire after one term anyway because of his stroke.

Murkowski ran as an independent but is still a republican. So yes, we could primary her again.

Collins so far has a democrat announcing against her but no republican.

When Roger Wicker got sent Ricin in an envelope my initial reaction was.
“Well, the suspect list has got to be short. Only 5 people know who the hell he is.”


That actually made me laugh out loud.

WOW I thought Kirk was the worst RINO of the RINO’s. How could folks in Mississippi elect people more liberal than Mark Kirk?

The problem with Maine is you either have Collins or a Democrat most likely. Too many country club Republican types to make anything but a RINO viable in that state.

“The problem with Maine is you either have Collins or a Democrat most likely. Too many country club Republican types to make anything but a RINO viable in that state.”

I’ve never bought into that myth. LePage won in Maine. And Scott Brown won here in MA when he ran as a conservative. He lost when he ran as a moderate.

That logic is just touted to convince us to never nominate a conservative because moderates are easy for democrats to beat.

Collins has a hard-line liberal democrat running against her. If she’s the nominee she’ll be beaten. Only a conservative can go toe to toe against a liberal because moderates don’t like to criticize or attack anybody but conservatives.

I buy it as a political reality. Republicans are more liberal in the Northeast and states like Illinois and California.

While there are exceptions, a moderate is more electable there. All-in-all Scot Brown is a moderate.

The most viable tea party senators will come from states like South Carolina and Kentucky.

MS people are totally uninformed about both of their senators. The media must be on hiatus there.
