Sarah Palin is endorsing Fairbanks lawyer Joe Miller to beat U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, saying she considers Murkowski part of the problem in Washington.
"Unfortunately, Lisa Murkowski and much of the political establishment have recently evolved into being a bigger part of the big government problem in Washington, and they've strayed from the principles upon which they had espoused," Palin wrote Wednesday on her Facebook page.
Miller is running against Murkowski in the Aug. 24 Republican primary. Sarah Palin's husband, Todd, has already attended a fundraiser for Miller.
The former governor wrote Miller is a "true Commonsense Constitutional Conservative" and reformer who more closely shares Alaskans' values than does Murkowski.
