Question of the Day
The Dallas Morning News reported Sunday that the state has given more than $16 million to high-tech startups whose investors are big Perry donors. The governor said he was usually unaware if his backers had financial stakes in the technology grant recipients.
Mr. White wants Mr. Perry’s campaign fundraisers to answer questions about when they contacted donors.
Senate candidate opposes set wage
JUNEAU | Alaska Senate hopeful Joe Miller says there should be no federal minimum wage.
The “tea party”-supported Republican said in an interview with Politico and ABC News it’s an issue that should be left up to states, not the federal government.
A spokeswoman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee called Mr. Miller an extremist and the fourth national GOP candidate to either oppose a federal minimum wage or be open to lowering it.
Mr. Miller is a self-described constitutional conservative who favors limiting the powers of the federal government to those outlined in the Constitution. He thinks greater control should rest with the states.
Mr. Miller upset Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the August primary. She is now running as a write-in candidate.
