JUNEAU — An aide to Joe Miller says a solicitation for donations at the bottom of a Sunday news release was inadvertent and that the former U.S. Senate candidate is no longer raising funds.
Matt Johnson tells The Associated Press that the postscript was unintentional.
Miller’s campaign included a solicitation for a recount fund at the bottom of press releases during the aftermath of the November election, when Miller was challenging the state’s handling of the election and raising money for his legal bills.
His rival, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, also raised money for her legal defense.
Johnson says he believes Miller was able to raise enough money to cover his costs.
A message left on Miller’s cell phone was referred to Johnson.
