Valerie Richardson mentioned Senator Lisa Murkowski – Alaska in Human Events, “Senator Akaka’s Native Hawaiian Bill Going Nowhere:”

Hawaii Democrats do hold one trump card: Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Alaska Republican, who’s a co-sponsor of the Akaka bill and represents the crucial 60th vote in the Senate.

The Alaska delegation has traditionally sided with Hawaii lawmakers on recognition issues, based on their own experience with Native Alaskans. But Murkowski may be rethinking her support for the Akaka bill, given Lingle’s switch and subsequent criticism. Two calls about the Akaka bill to a Murkowski spokesman were not returned.

Hopefully Senator Lisa Murkowski will shut down the Akaka Bill once and for ALL.
