The Tea Party Express -- the controversial group that recently ousted leader Mark Williams but was also instrumental in helping Sharron Angle win the Nevada GOP primary, and in helping persuade Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) to retire from Congress -- is back.

This time, the group is focusing on helping conservative Fairbanks, Alaska, attorney Joe Miller oust moderate Republican U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

The group has been running radio ads in the state and recently unveiled new TV ads. Tea Party Express officials have said they will spend "hundreds of thousands of dollars" to take out Murkowski. Based on their history of helping Angle win in Nevada, it's a threat to take seriously.

Here are the ads the Tea Party Express have produced and plan to release. The first one is primarily an attack ad on Murkowski.

And the second ad is a positive one that promotes Joe Miller . . .

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
