Joe Miller, the Alaska conservative activist who beat incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski in a 2010 GOP primary but lost to her in the general election, intends to run for Senate again in 2014, Politico reports.

On May 2, Miller filed a Federal Election Commission Form 2 stating his intent to run for Senate next year.

Miller has made no secret of his desire to challenge to Democratic Sen. Mark Begich, but had remained publicly uncommitted until filing the document.

In a post on his web site last month, Miller wrote that he was considering a 2014 campaign against Begich and couldn’t resist a jab at his old opponent, Murkowski, at the same time.

“Serious times call for bold measures,” Miller wrote.

“With the re-election of Barack Obama, our very way of self-government is in peril.

Though I was labeled an ‘extremist’ by the likes of Lisa Murkowski and Mark Begich for telling the truth, both of our sitting senators now routinely engage in such ‘extremist’ rhetoric with respect to federal overreach, government spending, and entitlement reform.

Yet they are still unwilling to tackle the tough issues.”

Miller remains a divisive figure among Republicans in his home state and the nation’s capital.

He ran a hard-right primary campaign against Murkowski in 2010 and won with support from Sarah Palin and conservative groups, but lost in the general election to Murkowski’s write-in bid as an independent Republican.
