Now that the AP has called the Alaska Senate race for Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Neil Cavuto wants to know this of Republican Joe Miller: “Do you feel a little like Custer right now?”
On Fox News this afternoon, Miller told Cavuto that “it’s not a question as to how I feel, it’s a question as to whether or not the voters of the state of Alaska deserve to have a consistent standard applied to the future, whether or not they deserve integrity in the vote. And those questions aren’t answered yet.”“It’s never over until the count’s done,” he said, and reiterated that his campaign “may actually ask for a hand count of our ballots as well.”
Miller asserted that they just want to make sure there’s “integrity” in the vote, “even if there is a significant amount of political pressure to for us to pull back.”
The tea party-backed Miller scored a surprise victory over Murkowski in the Republican primary — only to fall short to her historic write-in campaign in the general election. But clearly, he’s not quite ready to throw in the towel just yet.
