Sean was joined by GOP Senatorial candidate Joe Miller who made headlines last month with his unprecedented primary victory over Senator Lisa Murkowski. Now, weeks into his campaign as the GOP nominee, he hasn’t forgotten the Tea Party supporters who helped him win in September. “I think you’re going to win this race,” predicted Hannity, “Lisa Murkowski just can’t give up her grip on power.” Miller responded, “Alaskans are sick of the big spending that’s going on and they know we need to go in a new direction.” Murkowski hasn’t given up her bid for a November victory but is instead choosing to continue as a write-in candidate. Regardless of the outcome, the Alaska Senate race has already helped to shine the spotlight on the power of the Tea Party movement.
Meg Whitman Strikes Back
California Gubernatorial race is heating up and GOP candidate Meg Whitman joined Sean to defend the latest attacks by her opponents. As the Miami Herald recently published, Whitman came under fire for allegedly hiring an illegal alien as a housekeeper. “I don’t think anyone has handled an issue as swiftly or as smartly as you did,” praised Sean on Tuesday, “The more I learn about this the more I’m outraged by the stunt Gloria Allred pulled.” Sean was referring to the high powered attorney, Gloria Allred, who’s credited with leaking the story to the media. Whitman quickly responded, “This woman filled out the I-9 form which says that, under threat of perjury, you’re allowed to work here in the United States.” Whitman continued, “This broke my heart but I had to fire her because it’s the law.” It seems like the campaigns are filled with less substance and more dirt throwing. Exactly what Americans aren’t looking for these days.
