Local Tea Party Fetes Miller At 6 PM

Alaskan Joe miller, the Tea Party candidate who won the GOP primary for U.S. Senate in 2010 only to be defeated in a recount by write-in incumbent Lisa Murkowski in the general election, will be the guest speaker this evening at the 3rd annual gathering of Tea Party Patriots of North Idaho. The event begins at 6 o'clock at the Greyhound Park in Post Falls. Miller faced Democrat Scott McAdams and Independent Lisa Murkowski in the general election. According to Wikipedia, the machine count of the ballots cast in the Nov. 2 election showed that the largest number, 41 percent, were write-ins; the second largest number, 35 percent, were for Miller. Alaska election officials then hand counted the write-in votes to see what names were on them."  See Tea Party Patriots flyer here.

Question: Do you plan to attend the Tea Party event and hear Joe Miller?
