Dan Bross, KUAC – Fairbanks
U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller of Fairbanks has been a hot media commodity since taking the lead in the Republican primary. After stepping off set from filming a spot with CBS’s Face the Nation in Fairbanks Sunday, Miller said he’s done dozens of interviews since last Tuesday’s election.
With campaigns suspended as they await the count of absentee and questioned ballots in the close race between Miller and incumbent Lisa Murkowski, Miller says he can handle the media attention, and is using it to get his message of federal restraint out.
Miller advocates for defunding federal health care and transitioning away from social security, but says that the shift would be gradual, unless the federal government goes bankrupt.
