Alaska Lt. Gov. Craig Campbell says allegations made by Republican U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller in a state lawsuit are “baseless.”
Miller sued yesterday in Fairbanks, claiming elections officials have improperly gauged voter intent by accepting ballots with minor misspellings.
Campbell rejects the notion that elections officials acted improperly. He also says Miller claims fraud and irregularities occurred, but has not provided any examples.
Campbell says in a prepared statement that Miller’s allegations if left unanswered could make members of the public lose trust in a lawful, reliable and consistent election process.
