AP Calls Alaska Senate race for Murkowski

Heckuva job, Alaska!

JUNEAU, Alaska—Sen. Lisa Murkowski has become the first Senate candidate in more than 50 years to win a write-in campaign.

Ms. Murkowski emerged victorious after a painstaking, two-week count of write-in ballots showed she has overtaken tea party rival Joe Miller.

Her victory became clear when Alaska election officials confirmed they had only about 700 votes left to count, putting Ms. Murkowski in safe territory to win re-election.

Now that it's official, she can get right to work opposing the ban on earmarks.
