Murkowski Nears Write-in Victory

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) has "a good chance to become only the second candidate to run a successful write-in campaign for the U.S. Senate in the nation's history," the Anchorage Daily News reports.

Preliminary results show that "about 40% of the voters had filled in the write-in oval on their ballot... But it won't be clear for weeks at least how many of the voters wrote in Murkowski's name, and how many did it properly enough to be counted."

Joe Miller (R), "who ran on a tea party platform with the backing of former Gov. Sarah Palin, was pulling in 35% of the vote. Miller was followed by Democratic nominee Scott McAdams, who had about 24% of the vote."
