Miller Won't Block Murkowski Senate Certification

GOP Senate hopeful Joe Miller has announced that he won't prevent certification of his opponent, incumbent Senator Lisa Murkowski. For more, read this.

Murkowski lost against Miller in the primary, and ran as a write-in in the general election. Since the election, Miller has waged numerous legal challenges in both state and federal court. He was a decisive loser in state courts. Now what remains is for the federal judge hearing Miller's challenge to lift the stay on senate certification of Murkowski as the winner.

Lest you think this is the last word in the Miller-Murkowski match-up, it is not. Miller has vowed to continue litigating some of his claims concerning the election. Specifically, the battle concerns, among other things, whether write-in ballots that contain misspellings of Murkowski's name should be counted.
