Alaska Senate hopeful Joe Miller focused on GOP rival Sen. Lisa Murkowski during the last debate before next week's election, as he seeks to shore up his conservative base and win over voters following a series of high-profile campaign stumbles.

Miller, who beat Murkowski in the August primary, used a candidate-to-candidate question during the Alaska Public Broadcasting debate to ask Democrat Scott McAdams to compare his experience as a local official to that of Murkowski's when she first took office.

McAdams served eight years as a school board member and mayor. Murkowski was a state legislator when her father appointed her to his long-held Senate seat when he was elected governor in 2002. Murkowski has criticized McAdams as too inexperienced for the job.
