Lisa Murkowski

Lisa Murkowski, Alaska is writing “Murkowski” in record numbers. And it just might pay.

Write-in candidate Sen. Lisa Murkowski is leading so far in heated rematch between her and the tea party favorite Joe Miller.

“They said they ‘can do,” Murkowski told supporters Tuesday night. “We said, ‘If you can get anywhere, you can do in Alaska, and we will show the wrong country.” ”

With 99% of precincts reporting early Wednesday, write-ins were 41% of the vote compared to 34% of Miller. Scott McAdams Democrats won 24% of the vote.

Miller defeated Murkowski in an upset victory by the Republican Party nomination in August. Sarah Palin supported candidate won by just 2,006 votes in the primaries.

Strom Thurmond is the only victor writing the history of the Senate. He won in 1954.

Miller would not talk to reporters late on Tuesday, the Anchorage Daily News. He went home early evening party campaign, and then returned to his hotel, accompanied by his friends and family.

It could take days or even weeks, before writing all the ballots counted. And the figure only takes into account the total votes cast, not the names written on them.

Miller, campaign manager, Robert Campbell, said he was disappointed but still hopeful.

“As cliché as it is, is not over till it’s over,” said Campbell.
