U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski  (R) Alaska, smiles at supporters upon her arrival at Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2010.  Murkowski became the first Senate candidate in more than 50 years to win a write-in campaign.   The victory is a remarkable comeback for Murkowski, who lost to political newcomer Joe Miller in the GOP primary, and a humbling moment for Sara Palin, the former Alaska governor, 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate and Murkowski nemesis whose support was not enough to get Miller through an election in her own backyard.
