Alaska Libertarians select Joe Miller as Senate candidate

Joe Miller wants to again attempt to unseat U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, but this time he's planning to try it as a Libertarian.

Miller announced Tuesday that he will become the Libertarian's replacement candidate in Alaska's U.S. Senate race in another face-off with the incumbent Republican.

Six years ago, Miller upset Murkowski in the GOP primary only to see her retain her seat in a general election write-in campaign marked by a lengthy hand-count of ballots.

In a statement, Murkowski said she has been preparing for her re-election bid for several years and looks forward to "a spirited campaign on the issues that matter to Alaskans most."
