JUNEAU, Alaska - U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski holds a big fundraising edge over GOP rival Joe Miller.

This cycle, Murkowski has raised at least $3.5 million; Miller, who entered his first statewide run for office this spring, has raised more than $283,000.

Miller's overall figure, according to a federal election filing dated Aug. 11, includes $103,900 in candidate loans and $5,000 from Sarah Palin's PAC. Murkowski's overall includes $1.9 million from PACs.

Miller, a self-described constitutional conservative, reported $84,200 on hand as of Aug. 4; Murkowski reported $1.8 million available at that time.

Miller spokesman Randy DeSoto says Miller is seeing strong, growing support and the campaign believes it will win.

The primary is next Tuesday.
