Scott McAdams, the Democratic nominee in the three-way Alaska Senate race, has a new flyer that humorously refers to his weight.
“I’m Twice the Man Joe Miller is (literally),” the flyer says in its heading, and then adding: “And probably three or four Lisas.”
The TPM Poll Average gives Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski the lead with 40.4% for her nearly unprecedented write-in campaign, GOP nominee Joe Miller 29.5%, and McAdams 23.1%.
The flyer also has McAdams promising to be a moderate leader for all Alaskans, referring to past Alaska politicians of all parties:
I’m Twice the Man Joe Miller is (literally).
And probably three or four Lisas.
“I’m a big guy from a small town and as a former football player I know how to face challenges head-on. People may not see that beneath the bulk is a rock-ribbed fighter for Alaska. Both Joe and Lisa will toe the party line if elected to the US Senate. When Alaska’s opponents square up on the line of scrimmage, they’ll find me ready to fight for Alaska on every play.
It’s about Alaska. I will take my cure from our past leaders — Wally Hickel, Bill Egan, Jay Hammond and Ted Stevens; I will put Alaska first, and partisanship last.”
