Miller plans event to kick-off campaign for US Senate


JUNEAU, Alaska — Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Joe Miller is holding a campaign kickoff event Monday in Wasilla.

Miller announced his candidacy last year but has kept a relatively low profile until recently.

Miller was thrust into the national spotlight in 2010, when he upset Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the GOP primary last year. Murkowski later mounted a successful write-in campaign to hold onto her seat.

Miller's campaign says other featured speakers at Monday's event will include radio show host Lars Larson and Tim Macy with the Gun Owners of America.

Miller is among the Republicans seeking his party's nomination for the seat currently held by Democrat Mark Begich, who is seeking re-election. Other Republicans include former state Natural Resources Commissioner Dan Sullivan and Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell.
