In a major upset, Sen. Lisa Murkowski has conceded her GOP Senate primary race to Tea Party Express favorite Joe Miller, who had the backing of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
“I don’t see a scenario in which the primary will turn out in my favor,” Murkowski said in her concession speech.
Murkowski made the concession speech Tuesday night, a full week after the primary.

Debra Burlingame knows full well the horrible tragedy of the 9/11 terrorist attacks — her brother Charles was the pilot of the hijacked plane that crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11.
Now she’s a leader in the fight to stop the construction of a mosque two blocks from ground zero in Manhattan.
Burlingame tells Newsmax that 9/11 families are feeling “raw anguish” over the mosque plans, and accuses President Obama of “grandstanding” with his comments about the mosque controversy.
Republicans lead by 51% to 41% among registered voters in Gallup weekly tracking of 2010 congressional voting preferences. The 10-percentage-point lead is the GOP’s largest so far this year and is its largest in Gallup’s history of tracking the midterm generic ballot for Congress.
Comes this one:
We’ll start rolling out our Ohio poll results tomorrow but there’s one finding on the poll that pretty much sums it up: by a 50-42 margin voters there say they’d rather have George W. Bush in the White House right now than Barack Obama.
Independents hold that view by a 44-37 margin and there are more Democrats who would take Bush back (11%) than there are Republicans who think Obama’s preferable (3%.) (FloppingAces.net)

Two men from the Detroit area were arrested in Amsterdam on a flight arriving from Chicago, reportedly suspected of assessing the aviation system for a potential future terror attack.
The two men did not have prohibited items on them, a law enforcement official told Fox News, saying that although knives were found in their checked luggage, such checked items aren’t prohibited. The individuals also were not on the no-fly list, nor were there any active warrants for their arrest. (FNC)
