  • 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.

    MILLER: Writing in corruption

    Lisa Murkowski proved this past week that she has learned nothing from the message of the midterm elections. The main issues that drove people to the polls and created a Republican landslide were the beliefs that our nation is on the wrong track and that government spending has gotten completely out of control.

    Murkowski mounting write-in bid for Senate

    In the weeks following her defeat in the GOP primary, U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski went back and forth over whether to re-enter the race as a write-in candidate or accept life outside Washington and a role other than Alaska's senior senator.

Joe Miller is seen in his Fairbanks, Alaska, law office on Thursday. Sen. Lisa Murkowski conceded the GOP primary to him in late August.

    It's Miller time as upset victor steps up

    Joe Miller vowed to campaign for transferring power and control over resources from the federal government to Alaska and the other 49 states, and Democrats said the upset victory by the new Republican Senate nominee gives them new hope of competing for the seat.

On the Democratic side, party leaders consider whether to stick with primary winner and Sitka Mayor Scott McAdams or go with a better-known alternative in the suddenly competitive race. The temptation would only grow if Mrs. Murkowski and Mr. Miller both ran and split the center-right vote.
