We shall abide by the court's decisions even if we do not agree with them."

In an interview on CNN's "John King USA" Miller explained why he had taken his fight this far. "Ultimately, what this was about was creating transparency in the Alaskan election system...making sure that the votes were counted appropriately, that ballot security was maintained, things that I think all Alaskans really now appreciate."

The integrity of the election is vital and ultimately the rule of law must be our standard," Miller said in a statement. "Nevertheless, I have also decided to withdraw our opposition to the certification of the election, ensuring that Alaska will have its full delegation seated when the 112th Congress convenes next month."
