JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Joe Miller is fighting as though Alaska's Senate race has yet to occur.

The Republican has mounted a vigorous post-election campaign as his lawyers wage a last-ditch legal challenge to throw out write-in ballots for Sen. Lisa Murkowski in their hard-fought Senate race.

A hand count of ballots showed Murkowski ahead by 10,328 votes, or 2,169 when excluding votes challenged by Miller's campaign. Miller wants a judge to set a standard of review for the ballots and a possible recount.

While there's hope this could swing the election in his favor, he insists that, for him, it's less about win-or-lose now and more about principle, ensuring the law is upheld.

The legal challenge has left the Senate seat in limbo just one month before the race's winner is scheduled to be sworn in.
