    Alaska Senate Race Too Close to Call: Murkowski Versus Joe Miller

    ABC News projects that a Republican will win the Alaska Senate Race - incumbent Lisa Murkowski or Tea Party candidate Joe Miller, with Democrat Scott McAdams finishing third.
    Write-ins captured about 41 percent of the vote with 99 percent of precincts reporting as of this morning.
    Miller received 34 percent and McAdams had 24 percent of the vote, according to unofficial returns.
    The write-in votes will have to be counted, and a declared winner could be weeks away.
    The Alaska Division of Elections only counts the names of write-in candidates if they exceed names on the ballot or if the write-ins are within 0.5 percentage points of the leading candidate.
    No Alaskan candidate for statewide office has won more than 27 percent in a write-in campaign, and nationally, only one U.S. Senator in history has been elected via a write-in campaign.
    Amid a record snow in Anchorage -- Alaska's largest city -- charges of voter intimidation by Miller, and Murkowski launching a last-minute push to get out the vote, the fate of the race now rests in the hands of Alaska voters.
    On Tuesday night, Murkowski greeted a crowd of enthusiastic supporters who chanted "six more years" as she hugged her father, longtime Alaska senator and former Gov. Frank Murkowski, who was defeated by Sarah Palin.

    I believe Lisa Murkowski is going to take this election and I am happy for her. She was stripped of her Republican leadership post and it will be interesting to see what happens when she wins.

    If she does win, it will be a serious black-eye for Miss Wasilla 1984

    To go with the one she received over O'Donnell?

    Well, if one has to have a black-eye, matched sets go better with cocktail dresses.....and raccoon conventions.
