Miller says he's in US Senate race

JUNEAU — Joe Miller says he wants to be clear: he’s running for U.S. Senate.

Miller filed a statement of candidacy earlier this month. He said while there was a technical reason for the filing — individuals must register as candidates when campaign contributions or spending top $5,000 — he’s in the race.

Miller unsuccessfully challenged fellow Republican, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, in Alaska’s 2010 U.S. Senate race. This time, he seeks to take on Democratic Sen. Mark Begich.

Since 2010, Miller says nothing has been done about the nation’s debt situation. He says the country is moving “closer and closer” to socialism, as the federal health care law takes effect.

He says the base of constitutional conservatives has grown since he ran last, and he’s working on building grassroots support and fundraising.
