Miller's Return Gives GOP Establishment Heartburn

Joe Miller, "the tea party favorite who was backed by Sarah Palin when he roiled GOP politics in the 2010 midterm elections, is seriously considering another bid at an Alaska Senate seat, a campaign that could prompt a bare-knuckled effort against a candidate pushed by the party establishment," Politico reports.

"The Miller situation provides an early test for Republicans in Washington, who are trying to avoid the internecine battles of the past two elections that damaged GOP chances of taking back the Senate."

Said Miller: "I think if the Republican Party is going to win, they really need to kick the likes of Karl Rove out. They are the ones that are pulling the party away from the foundation, which has a winning message."
