Murkowski Write-In Announcement

Alaska Night Part Deux.

Just getting started (9:40 eastern). Miller is supposed to have a competing presser shortly.

Palin took a veiled shot at Murkowski during her speech and then directly by name after it.

One challenge with any write-in campaign is what versions of a candidates name will be counted for them. At one point the Alaska Commissioner of Elections said "Lisa M." would suffice. Not so fast.

“After careful review of the statutes it is clear that the oval must be marked and either a candidate’s last name or their name as written on their declaration of candidacy must be present in order for the vote to be counted,” (Lieutenant Governor Craig) Campbell said. It is questionable whether simply listing the first name and initial of the last name of a write-in candidate meets the requirements of state statute, unless that is the declared name by the candidate on the written declaration of candidacy.

“If there is a write-in candidate and they have filed the proper paperwork, DOE will follow the letter of the law - nothing more, nothing less. If there are questions of interpretation of the statutes, the Department of Law will be consulted,” Campbell stated.

In the meantime, Campbell has discussed the issue with the Department of Law and has been informed that the Attorney General is reviewing the issue.

That makes this already unlikely effort, even more so. FTR-Only one person, Strom Thurmond in 1954, has won election to the Senate as a write-in candidate.

This isn't about winning an election, it's about Lisa "Daddy Said I Could Be Senator!" Murkowski's ego and her dislike of Sarah Palin.

We really need to hear from John Cornyn and Mitch McConnell in the next few minutes announcing Murkowski is out of the leadership, off the Senate Appropriations Committee (the key to bringing money home to Alaska, her only rationale for running) and in general dead to them and the Republican Party.

Don't know about you but I'm super excited to see how Murkowski behaves in the coming lame duck session.

Mad at Murky? Here's Joe Miller's website.

Murkowski started this dog and pony show off by talking about a facebook page urging her to do this. Here's one to let her know she's a sore loser who has to go.

Murkowski says she made a mistake by not attacking Miller's 'extremist views' and now 'the gloves are off'.
