NRSC to donors: Help support Joe Miller's legal battle in Alaska

Murkowski appears to be leading Miller by a wide margin in her write-in bid, but National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn will e-mail supporters Friday and urge them to make donations to Miller’s campaign.

“Joe Miller in Alaska is dedicated to the conservative principals we need in Washington DC. But he faces the potential of a lengthy recount. And in Alaska, they are still counting votes from election day. We need to get Joe the resources he needs to win the vote count,” the Texas Republican says in the e-mail, asking recipients to make donations of $100, $75, $50 or even $25 to “help ensure that this vote count is conducted fairly.”

“Both sides are beginning to lawyer up and prepare for any possible legal fights. Joe needs your help to make sure he has enough money to make it a fair contest,” Cornyn adds in the e-mail.
