Murkowski regrets voting with GOP on birth control

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, right, joins volunteers to wave to motorists on Monday, Aug. 23, 2010, in Anchorage, Alaska. Candidates are pulling no punches in their last minute push for voters in Tuesday's primary. The greatest proof of this is in the U.S. Senate race where Sarah Palin has re emerged months after first endorsing GOP challenger Joe Miller to urge Alaskans to support him and to oust Murkowski. Murkowski's not shying away, running a new radio spot of her own, called "Truth," in which she uses audio from a talk show host's tirade against Miller to show Miller as distorting her record.
