Joe Miller, Alaska Senate candidate, deletes his tweets
Joe Miller found his campaign in a bit of controversy over Twitter tweets that sounded too confident. Did Miller tweet the comments or an aide?

Statements from Miller's Twitter feed late Wednesday, when he was in Washington, D.C,. fundraising, said he thinks he'll "do some house hunting." He also says he figures he should pick out office furniture and expressed appreciation for the welcome he'd received from those he called future colleagues.
The rival campaign of Murkowski, who is still running as a write-in candidate, labeled the tweets "hubris."
The tweets later disappeared. Miller spokesman Randy DeSoto said they were deleted because the campaign considered them inappropriate, and said they came from a volunteer who will no longer have access to the account.
