The Last Hurrah of Wingnut Joe? Judge Rejects Miller Complaints
An Alaska judge Friday evening rejected a challenge by Senate candidate Joe Miller (R) to the election results that appear to have returned Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R) to the Senate.
Miller, who trails by more than 10,000 votes in the still-unresolved contest, has argued that Murkowski should not be certified the winner because of concerns about ballots cast in her remarkable write-in campaign for re-election. In the GOP primary, Miller had beaten Murkowski with the support of tea party activists and former Gov. Sarah Palin (R), but Murkowski ran as a write-in candidate in the general election.
