Murkowski Plans to Caucus with GOP If Re-elected

Friday, 22 Oct 2010 02:55 PM


JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A spokesman for Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski says she will "absolutely" caucus with Republicans if she's re-elected.

She's running her write-in campaign as a Republican. And spokesman Steve Wackowski says she fully plans to caucus with Republicans if she wins.

He says she won't change caucuses, adding, "That's just not who she is."

She resigned as vice chair of the Senate Republican Conference when she decided to mount a write-in candidacy following her loss in the GOP primary to tea party supported Joe Miller.

Though she lost support from within the Republican establishment in making an outside run, colleagues refused to strip her of her post as the top minority member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
