It looks like it’s time to stop calling Joe Miller a former Senate candidate.
The Alaska conservative activist who lost a 2010 bid for the Senate after besting incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski in a GOP primary, has filed a form indicating he intends to run for Senate again in 2014, according to documentation from the office of the Secretary of the Senate.
On May 2, Miller filed a Federal Election Commission Form 2 stating his intent to run for Senate next year. It’s a document that any candidate must complete upon receiving more than $5,000 in contributions to a political campaign or authorizing another party to take in over $5,000 in contributions.
The form states that Joseph W. Miller of Fairbanks, Alaska, plans to run for Senate as a Republican in 2014 and that Citizens for Joe Miller has been designated as his principal campaign committee.
After POLITICO reported Miller’s 2014 filing, the Republican posted a statement on his website overnight confirming that he had submitted a document to comply with “the complexities of the law.”
