ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Sen. Lisa Murkowski's rival in Alaska's contentious U.S. Senate race is opposing her motion to intervene in his lawsuit against the state's elections office.

In a response filed Friday, Joe Miller's attorneys say the state is the sole entity in dealing with enforcement and application of state law at issue.

Murkowski mounted a write-in challenge after losing to Miller in the Republican primary. Murkowski has declared victory with a 10,328-vote lead, a total that includes 8,159 ballots contested by Miller observers.

Miller is seeking to block certification of the general election. His lawsuit alleges elections officials illegally counted improperly marked votes for Murkowski.

Officials have accepted minor misspellings on write-in ballots.
