Alaska conservative Joe Miller officially filed papers indicating his intent to run for the Senate in 2014, Politico reported Tuesday.
Miller first ran for a Senate seat in 2010, beating out incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the GOP primary. He ultimately lost to Murkowski in the general election after she launched an aggressive write-in campaign.
The tea party candidate has been contemplating a run for months and filed his papers with the Federal Elections Commission in early May, according to Politico.
A poll taken earlier in the month by the Republican-affiliated Harper Polling found that 49 percent of Republicans had an unfavorable opinion of Miller.
