ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Sarah Palin is rallying behind beleaguered Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller, after records showed he admitted lying about improperly using government computers while working as a borough attorney.
Palin came to Miller's defense in a series of tweets Wednesday. She says the media is ignoring Miller's "winning record" and message to favor "their Leftwinger chosen one."
Miller is running against write-in candidate Sen. Lisa Murkowski, whom he beat in the GOP primary, and Democrat Scott McAdams.
Palin has tangled politically with Murkowski. Palin re-emerged Monday, after keeping a low-profile in the race, to take special aim at Murkowski and try to raise money for Miller.
Palin is set to headline a "Change D.C." rally with Miller on Thursday in Anchorage.
