JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A national Republican group is staying mum on whether Joe Miller should concede Alaska's Senate race.

The state GOP called on Miller to do that Wednesday, when the last votes were tabulated and Sen. Lisa Murkowski claimed victory.

National Republican Senatorial Committee spokesman Brian Walsh said the group believes the race "should be decided by the people of Alaska." He declined further comment until the election is officially certified. That's expected Nov. 29.

The committee backed Murkowski in the primary, which she lost to Miller. It then backed Miller as Murkowski mounted a write-in campaign to keep her job.

It ran ads for Miller and contributed at least $20,000 for attorneys to help with work like overseeing the hand count of ballots.
