Alaska: Murkowski Rival to Get Tea Party Express Help

Inspired by an endorsement by Sarah Palin, the group Tea Party Express examined the politics of Senate hopeful Joe Miller and decided it, too, would back Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s challenger in the Republican primary.

“Maybe a lot of voters don’t know who Joe Miller is and don’t feel he can win,” Tea Party Express spokesman Levi Russell told the Associated Press. “We want voters to take a second look.”

The organization has about 1,000 members in the state and 375,000 nationwide, Russell said.

Palin endorsed Miller earlier this month.
