From Alaska Dispatch
Joe Miller, who ran a failed campaign in 2010 to unseat Republican Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski and has been hinting at a run against Democrat Mark Begich, appears to have taken another step toward a 2014 race. According to Politico, Miller filed a Statement of Candidacy form with the Federal Election Commission on May 2. That form is required by any potential candidate who has either received or spent more than $5,000 in pursuit of a federal office. In the eyes of the federal government, it makes Miller a candidate for the Senate in 2014.
