Naming of Alaska Winner Delayed
Joe Miller is not just a loser, he’s a sore loser.
A federal judge in Alaska on Friday placed a conditional hold on the certification of the results of the contentious Senate race between Joe Miller and Senator Lisa Murkowski, telling the Miller campaign to take its legal challenges to state court.
It was not clear that the ruling would affect the outcome of the race. Ms. Murkowski, who lost the Republican primary to Mr. Miller this summer but returned to the race as a write-in candidate in September, declared victory on Wednesday, after state election workers finished counting write-in votes.
