JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Joe Miller says he will support the eventual GOP nominee if he doesn't win Tuesday's primary.

For months, Miller, a tea party favorite, said he would not commit to supporting either Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell or Dan Sullivan, stoking fears that the party would be divided in a race Republicans see as key to their efforts to win back control of the Senate.

But near the end of a televised debate Thursday night, Miller said he would support Treadwell or Sullivan, if he himself is not successful. He said he would do everything he can to see that incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Begich is defeated.

Both Treadwell and Sullivan have said they would support the eventual nominee, should they lose.
