Miller Sues Over Write-in Spelling

Alaska U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller (R) filed a federal lawsuit arguing that votes that misspell Sen. Lisa Murkowski's (R) name shouldn't count as the state today tallies write-in ballots in the U.S. Senate race, the Anchorage Daily News reports.

Despite the lawsuit, the state is preparing this morning to start checking and counting the more than 92,000 write-in ballots cast in last week's election.

The state counted about 27,000 absentee and early votes yesterday with Miller gaining on the write-in total by about 2,100 votes. At the end of the day, Miller remained 11,333 behind the write-in total.
