Miller Says NRSC Needs to Stay on Sidelines

Anchorage, Alaska. August 26, 2010 — Joe Miller, candidate for United States Senate, believes the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s proper place during the Republican Primary Election in Alaska is on the sidelines. The purpose of the organization is “electing Republicans to the U.S. Senate.” It is not to pick favorites amongst those running, nor is it to send lawyers to try to manipulate the outcome. Miller said, “You have to be concerned anytime somebody lawyers up and tries to pull an Al Franken, if you will. We are very aware that there may be some attempt here to skew the results. I hope that is not the case. Alaskans won’t stand for any post-election foul play; the accurate vote of the people must stand.”

Miller also pointed out that Lisa Murkowski has not publicly ruled out a third party run. “It is inappropriate for the NRSC to spend money on a candidate who may not even be the Republican nominee and in fact may change parties to run against the Party’s choice,” said Miller.
