A new ad from Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) attacks Republican Senate nominee Joe Miller for the incident at a town hall when his security team handcuffed and detained a journalist, and for Miller’s comment that if East Germany could secure the border, so can the U.S.
The ad says: “Joe Miller’s answer to freedom of the press? Arrest the journalist. Joe Miller’s answer to illegal immigration? Use East Germany as an example. Exactly what kind of America does Joe Miller live in?”
Murkowski is running as a write-in after Miller beat her in the Republican primary.
