Alaska Team Welcomes Key Endorsement from Mrs. Joe Miller
Miller, wife of popular former Tea Party U.S. Senate candidate,
“proudly” stands with Paul
Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul was endorsed today by
Kathleen Miller, wife of Joe Miller, a popular Tea Party Republican
nominee for U.S. Senate in the state of Alaska during the 2010 election.
Organizational affiliations preclude Mr. Miller from making public his
support for any presidential candidate. However, his biography
the public endorsement and following statement issued by Mrs.
“I am supporting Ron Paul because he is the only candidate who is truly
committed to following the Constitution and its original intent.
Paul also understands and is committed to addressing the extreme fiscal
crisis our nation is faced with.
“At this point in our nation's history, we cannot risk more business as
usual. The circumstances demand a leader who will take his oath
office seriously and who will confront the ingrained corruption the
marks modern American politics.
“I proudly stand with Dr. Paul and Carol as they continue their fight
Joe Miller shocked the political world on August 24, 2010 when he,
according to media accounts, came out of nowhere to defeat incumbent
Senator Lisa Murkowski in the Alaskan Republican Primary. He then
entered into a contentious three-way general election, where federal
contractors and others who benefited from the status quo waged a
multimillion-dollar campaign and managed to help narrowly defeat Joe.
Joe graduated from West Point in the top 1 percent of the Class of
1989. He then served as an armor officer with the 1st Infantry
Division, seeing combat in Operation Desert Storm. During his
he was decorated with the Bronze Star, Meritorious Service Medal and
other awards. After active duty, Joe attended Yale Law School where he
earned his juris doctorate. He also holds a Master’s Degree in
Economics from the University of Alaska.
Joe’s commitment to public service continued following his move to
Alaska, which was the fulfillment of a long held dream. At the
30, he was appointed as a State Magistrate (the youngest then serving
in Alaska). Further honors followed four years later when Miller
appointed an Acting State District Court Judge and, shortly thereafter,
U.S. Magistrate Judge in Fairbanks. Again, he had the distinction
being the youngest then serving in that federal position, not only in
the state, but also in the entire nation. He later served as a
part-time borough attorney, while he ran a successful law practice.
Joe and Kathleen currently reside in Fairbanks with their children and
have been married for over 19 years.
Providing a strong boost to Ron Paul’s Alaska organization, such
endorsements present Ron Paul as the conservative alternative to Mitt
Romney. They also demonstrate that the 12-term Congressman from
has the only campaign organization capable of maintaining a 50-state
competition with the moderate-establishment Romney.
