Senator Jim DeMint and the Senate Conservatives Fund Back Joe Miller

Anchorage, Alaska. September 07, 2010 — Senator Jim DeMint (R, SC) announced his endorsement of Joe Miller for U.S. Senate. “I want to congratulate Joe Miller…and offer him my full support,” said Senator DeMint. “He pulled off the upset victory of the year because he ran on principles and because Alaskans, like all Americans, want to put a stop to the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are bankrupting our country. I applaud Senator Murkowski for gracefully conceding this race and for doing her part to help Republicans in Alaska move forward…Now it’s time for Republicans to unite behind Joe Miller and help him win this important race in November. I’m proud to announce that the Senate Conservatives Fund will add Joe Miller to its list of endorsed candidates, and will immediately begin working to raise support for his campaign.”

Miller responded, “I’m deeply appreciative of Senator DeMint’s and the SCF’s endorsement of our campaign. Senator DeMint has been doing yoeman’s work to bring this nation back to its Founding principle of limited government and personal freedom. With the support of the Alaskan people, I want to join him in that fight in the halls of Congress.”
