Miller Campaign to Receive Help From Tea Party Group

Associated Press

Joe Miller has ended the quarter with nearly $125,000, a fraction of the nearly $2.4 million that Senator Lisa Murkowski had heading toward the August 24 GOP primary.

Miller reported raising about $111,000 between April 1 and June 30. He also loaned his campaign nearly $104,000.

During that same period, Murkowski raised more than $500,000.

But Miller is also getting help. A national Tea Party group has pledged to put up to $1 million behind the Fairbanks attorney, in an effort to create a more level playing field.
