JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- Republican Joe Miller said he won't stand in the way of Sen. Lisa Murkowski being certified the winner of Alaska's U.S. Senate race, but he vowed to not end his legal fight over the state's handling of the vote count.

Miller's announcement late Sunday paves the way for Murkowski, the incumbent and a write-in candidate, to be officially named winner of the race.

Republican leadership in the Congress should place her in the worst office in the building. Right next to the Dumpster.

But they won’t.

IIRC two state laws were broken.
1- The state is prohibited from issuing a list of write-in candidates.
2- The state is prohibited from counting misspelled write-in votes.

Am I correct?

If Miller was on the Republican line on the ballot, then the Cow is an Independent? Is this right?

If so, with whom will she caucus?

McConnell has a real problem here ~ he knows his political life is over if he allows her to caucus with the Republicans.

End of story.

Alaskans are brain dead to have elected this POS to represent their interests. Maybe they can lure Schwartzenegger to be their next conservative governor, or some other communist-democrat posing as a republican.

I now consider Alaska’s judiciary and election system to be as corrupt as those in Venezuela.

She is a terrible RINO but there is no question that she was the choice of Alaskans and to fight more would have pushed him into Sore-Loserman territory.

The American people are too fickle to hold that against her.

Right move by Miller, although I regret Rhino Turdbronski won.

"Alaskans are brain dead to have elected this POS to represent their interests."

I'm sure you are referring to the crooked Native corporation officials, unionistas, and democrat voters who stole the election through fraud and criminal actions from the Alaskan people, who voted for Miller, who WON the primary.
