Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and his Senate Conservatives Fund, which funneled several million dollars to Tea Party-backed Senate candidates this cycle, is ready to help Joe Miller fight Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s high-flying legal team in Alaska.
The political action committee is currently exploring exactly how it can assist Miller, the Republican nominee, on the fundraising front in what is expected to be a costly and drawn-out ballot-counting process.
Miller is likely to need the help since he’ll be up against a top-notch legal team assembled by Murkowski, who ran as a write-in candidate after she lost the GOP primary to Miller. The incumbent’s legal efforts will be led by GOP heavyweight Ben Ginsberg, who played a leading role in the recount effort in Florida on behalf of then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush (R) in 2000.
