In Alaska, Tea Party candidate Joe Miller is fighting for a win for the US Senate seat. He shouldn’t.
Lisa Murkowski is the sitting senator. She lost the Republican primary – you have to work at that. But she kept on swinging, trying for a write-in campaign.
Yeah, right. As if that’s gonna work.
But apparently it has. Alaska has voted for the write-in candidate, by about 41% to Miller’s 34%. Aaaaah, but are all the votes for Murkowski?
Close enough. It’s looking like Murkowski has about 98% of the write-ins, giving her a clear victory.
Instead of being gracious and conceding the election, though, Miller’s people are fighting every possible write-in ballot. They are alleging that a write-in for Muckowski is not a vote for Murkowski. Well, yes, Joe, it is. Give it up and do the right thing.
Lisa Murkowski won the election. Get over it.
