JUNEAU — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed Joe Miller in this state's GOP U.S. Senate primary on Friday, one day after Miller referred to Palin as a "major inspiration" in a debate.
Palin, in a Facebook post, said Miller has the "guts, wisdom, experience, and optimism to fight for what is right — and win."
Palin endorsed Miller, a tea party favorite, during his unsuccessful Senate bid in 2010. Miller upset Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the GOP primary that year but Murkowski waged a historic write-in campaign to keep her job.
