Alaska's Joe Miller has given up his legal fight to wrest a U.S. Senate seat away from incumbent Lisa Murkowski, but promised local supporters and national TV audiences on Friday that he will continue the battle for conservative political values.
Records released by court order revealed Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller to have lied when first confronted about his misuse of borough computers. But pollsters tracking the race aren't sure it will mean much come election day.
Putting an end to entitlements on a national level and empowering states has been a key message in Miller's campaign. In the weeks leading up to the admission about his wife's unemployment history, Miller has finessed his message on unemployment benefits.
