(CNN)–Joe Miller is giving up, but he isn’t standing down.
He also needs Senator Lisa Murkowski’s phone number. Miller won Alaska’s Republican U.S. Senate primary, lost the general election to a write-in campaign waged by incumbent Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, then unsuccessfully challenged the results in court. Today in Anchorage, he told supporters the time has come, ” to accept the practical realities of our current legal circumstances. We shall abide by the court’s decisions even if we do not agree with them.”
He also sounded a defiant note, adding: “I know for a fact that standing down is not an option, and I will continue to sound the alarm about our state and the nation.”
