The Joe Miller campaign shouldn’t be expecting help from the Federalist Society in his legal fight over the ballot count in the Senate race, the group’s president and CEO said in a statement today.
Miller campaign manager Robert Campbell said in an interview that the conservative lawyers group could get involved to give Miller some help.
“This is incorrect,” Federalist Society CEO Eugene Meyer said in an emailed response today. “The Federalist Society does not engage in any such partisan political activity as a non-profit, educational organization, and it won't be doing so here. It may well be that individual members are involved in some aspect of the campaign or its aftermath, but that is a matter of their own private affairs.”
Miller’s campaign manager also said the National Republican Senatorial Committee would be helping Miller on the ballot count.
The NRSC will not confirm that, though.
The first thing that visitors to Miller's campaign website see is a fundraising solicitation declaring: "It's Not Over Yet! It's a CLIFFHANGER. Help defray the cost of the hand count!"
The Hill reports that Sen. Jim DeMint's political action committee is "currently exploring" how it can help Miller with the fundraising.
