“After meeting with the Libertarian candidate last week and considering that option, I cannot in good conscience seek the Libertarian nomination,” she said.

Murkowski accused the Tea Party Express, which poured $500,000 into Miller’s campaign, of hijacking the Alaska Republican Party, but said she “is not going to quit my party.

“I will not wrap myself in the flag of another political party for the sake of election at any cost,” she said.
