Joe the Winner

Joe Miller is the unknown Republican who unseated 8 year veteran senator Lisa Murkowski in Alaska. Get to know Joe - he's pretty impressive.

Miller has an 8 point lead over Democrat Scott McAdams in the latest poll. Here's some background on the race, inlcuding Murkowski's concession.

Sarah Palin's support for Miller, while not vigorous, is still being credited for his victory. This win, along with McCain's easy one over JD Hayworth, are making Palin look like a powerhouse.
