I'm approaching this conclusion from the perspective of the 2008 Minnesota U.S. Senate race. I think we all remembered that as a result of the legal challenges from Norm Coleman and the back and forth of legalities, Minnesota was bearing the burden of 1 U.S. Senator instead of 2 for seven months. Think about if a similar impact comes to Alaska. Norm Coleman himself just recently offered a piece of advice to Joe Miller that I think he should embrace. "It's time to move on! There's not much you can do in extending the process." What if that were to happen? How can Senator Murkowski continue her work on the Senate Energy Committee with respect to opening A.N.W.R? O.C.S.? What about the Natural Gas Pipeline? These are all issues important to Alaskans and Senator Murkowski will be absent from attaining progress from her work on those issues if she is not sworn back in the Senate on January 3rd.
I hope Mr. Miller will take those facts and many more into consideration and will concede.
