(CNN) - Put Joe Miller on the list of Tea Party candidates who have vowed to either avoid national media reporters or try to restrict the types of questions they're asked by them.
During a press conference following a candidate forum Monday in Anchorage, Miller told reporters that his campaign has "drawn a line in the sand."
"You can ask me about background, you can ask me about personal issues - I'm not going to answer," Miller said, according to the Anchorage Daily News.
"We are calling upon all responsible members of the media to focus on the issues, the legitimate issues and not repeat basically the lies and innuendos, not repeat the clear violations of law, but to focus on the issues at hand," he added.
It's common for political campaigns to strategize about their media relations tactics, but Miller is one of a few Tea Party backed candidates this election cycle to publicly vow to try to control the message that reporter's report.
Last month, a recording of Nevada GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle surfaced in which she could be heard bragging about her ability to fund-raise by appearing on "friendly press outlets."
And in an interview broadcast in July, Angle surprisingly said, "We needed to have the press be our friend."
"We wanted them [the press] to ask the questions we want to answer. So that they report the news the way we want it to be reported," Angle said.
Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell told Fox News' Sean Hannity last month that national media interviews were "off the table because that's not going to help me get votes."
"I'm not going to do any more national media because that – this is my focus. Delaware is my focus and the local media is my focus," O'Donnell said.
O'Donnell did grant CNN's Jim Acosta an interview on Thursday, which was published online and broadcast on CNN.
