ANCHORAGE, Alaska—U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller is opposing Sen. Lisa Murkowski's motion to intervene in his lawsuit against the state. In a response filed Friday, Miller's attorneys say the state is the sole entity in dealing with enforcement and application of state law at issue.
Murkowski has declared victory in the Senate race with a 10,000-vote lead, a total which includes 8,000 ballots contested by Miller observers.
Miller is seeking to block certification of the general election. His lawsuit alleges elections officials illegally counted improperly marked votes for Murkowski.
