Murkowski Distances Herself From Norquist

On Monday, we began a list of Republicans distancing themselves from or saying they would violate Grover Norquist's anti-tax pledge. The initial list included Sens. Saxby Chambliss, Lindsey Graham, and Bob Corker, as well as House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Rep. Peter King (see the rundown here).

One more for the list: Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who won reelection in 2010 as a write-in candidate after losing the GOP primary to a tea party-favored candidate. A Murkowski aide said the senator feels no attachment to the pledge, and thinks everything should be on the table.
