Picture_Joe_Standing_By_Tank21c4daFairbanks, Alaska. December 23, 2013 – Joe Miller, candidate for U.S. Senate is proud to receive the endorsement of the Combat Veterans for Congress PAC.

The Combat Veterans for Congress enjoyed great success in the 2010 and 2012 campaign cycles seeing dozens of the candidates they endorsed elected to office. The group’s mission statement reads, “Combat Veterans For Congress Committee is dedicated to supporting the election of fiscally conservative Combat Veterans to Congress . . . who believe in limited government, will rein in the out of control spending of Congress, are committed to preserving and defending the US Constitution, and will support the independence and freedom of the individual as outlined in the Bill of Rights.”

In their endorsement, the Combat Veterans for Congress highlighted some of Miller’s achievements including being an honor graduate of West Point, holding a juris doctorate from Yale Law School and a masters in economics from the University of Alaska, being a veteran who was awarded the Bronze Star for his leadership in combat, as well as serving as a state and federal magistrate judge–the youngest then serving in those positions in the state and nation, respectively. Miller also had the distinction of being the only to serve at both the state and federal levels simultaneously in the nation at that time. Miller, in both the private practice of law and as a part-time borough attorney, has argued several cases successfully before the Alaska Supreme Court.

The group’s endorsement of Miller reads in part:

“The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC is pleased to endorse former Captain Joseph Miller, Esq., USA who will bring to Congress private sector skills and wisdom to better solve problems in government and represent the Alaska and the Republic…The military is one of the few remaining institutions producing the caliber of men and women needed to restore this nation to the greatness our Founding Fathers envisioned. We have endorsed another Combat Veteran For Congress that General George Washington would have approved of. He is a Veteran who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘The United States of America’ for an amount up to and including his life.”

Miller responded to the group’s endorsement stating, “I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Combat Veterans for Congress Committee, and I am also proud to stand with my fellow veterans in defense of our Constitution. It is time to make America the land of liberty and opportunity the Founders intended, once again.”

Joe Miller is a husband, father, war veteran, businessman, and Constitutional conservative who believes in limited government, the Right to life, individual liberty, private property, and free markets.
