Miller will decide soon on challenge
JUNEAU, Alaska – Republican Joe Miller plans to decide Monday whether to continue his legal challenge to Alaska’s U.S. Senate race or stand back and let his GOP rival, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, take office.
This follows the state Supreme Court’s decision Wednesday to uphold election results favoring Murkowski.
Miller told KTVA-TV of Anchorage on Wednesday that he expected to decide the next day whether to fight on. But with the holiday weekend approaching, he told Fox News on Thursday that he’d consult with supporters and his legal team and announce a decision Monday.
Monday is the deadline he faces for making any case in federal court.
Miller said all options are being weighed, including pursuing constitutional claims in federal court.
