AP Calls Murkowski The Winner

November 17, 2010

Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) has officially prevailed in her uphill write-in re-election bid, with the AP calling her the victor against the official Republican nominee, Joe Miller.

The call comes as Alaska election officials completed a tally of write-in ballots that ended up giving her a lead of about 10,000 votes over Miller. That's a larger margin than the 8,153 ballots that were counted for Murkowski that Miller challenged because of misspelled names or illegibility. Still to be counted are a few hundred absentee and overseas ballots.

Miller has vowed to challenge the results. On Tuesday, Miller called for a full hand recount of all the ballots.

The Murkowski campaign is planning a media event Wednesday evening where Murkowski is expected to declare victory. With her win, Murkowski becomes the first Senate candidate to win election as a write-in candidate in Strom Thurmond in 1954.
