Another One Bites The Dust

My Way News:
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) - Republican Gov. Frank Murkowski lost his bid for a second term on Tuesday, making him the first incumbent Alaska governor in 20 years to be unseated in his party's primary election.

Murkowski conceded the race to former Wasilla Mayor Sarah Palin about two hours after the polls closed and pledged to support her.

Palin, running a campaign that portrayed her as a reformer bucking the state's Republican establishment, will now face former Democratic Gov. Tony Knowles in November's general election.
Gonna' be a rough year for incumbents. All ready is! Notice that in this case, the challenger was portrayed "as a reformer bucking the state's Republican establishment." In other words, she was portrayed as a Democrat! Interesting strategy, that. Wonder how well that will work in November?
