Palin Contributes to Miller in Ballot Fight

Thursday, 11 Nov 2010 06:25 PM


JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Sarah Palin has given Joe Miller $5,000 for the ballot count in the hotly contested Alaska Senate race.

Miller spokesman Randy DeSoto says Palin's political action committee made the donation to Miller's U.S. Senate Defense Fund.

The PAC's treasurer didn't immediately return a message.

Palin's SarahPAC gave Miller $10,000 for the primary and general election. In both races, Miller faced Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who ran as a write-in candidate after losing the primary to Miller.

Write-in ballots are now being counted, and both campaigns are raising money to oversee the effort and cover legal costs.

Miller also is getting help from the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint's PAC reports raising more than $146,000 for what it calls a Miller "re-count" fund.
