Ads financed by the National Republican Senatorial Committee are about to hit the air in Alaska to aid Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller. He’s locked in a tight battle with incumbent Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who is running as a write-in candidate after losing the Republican primary to Miller, and Democrat Scott McAdams. So Miller can certainly use the NRSC’s assistance, Roll Call reports.

The NRSC is frustrated.”

Rasmussen’s most recent poll puts Miller’s support at 35 percent, compared to 34 percent for Murkowski and 27 percent for McAdams.
