Alaska Republicans say they have regrouped from a tumultuous several months and are ready to challenge freshman Democratic Sen. Mark Begich in 2014. But they still face a potentially divisive primary that features the return of Tea Party candidate Joe Miller with omnipresent Sarah Palin on the sidelines, at least for now.
The rocky several months started when supporters for 2012 Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul took control of the state party with a huge showing at the state convention. Then, establishment-backed Republicans ousted the state party chairman and vice chairman amid accusations of anemic fundraising.
New chairman Peter Goldberg says the turmoil is “behind us now.” But he also acknowledges the party is expecting a primary fight as it searches for a strong challenger for Begich, and he expresses confidence that Republicans will rally around their eventual nominee.
Republicans need to gain six seats to win control of the Senate.
