Alaska Senate Race Still Tight

The GOP incumbent in the Alaskan senate race has a slight lead over her opponent.  Senator Lisa Murkowski is just 1700 votes ahead of Republican Nominee Joe Miller.  Murkowski lost the party nomination after losing to Miller in August's primary, and instead became a write-in candidate.  More votes are to be counted today.  Another 600 ballots from overseas that could be submitted by Wednesday's deadline will be counted later this week.
