2010 Senate race: Alaska

Nov 17, 2010 — Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, defeated for renomination in the August Republican primary, has won another term via a write-in — defeating the Tea Party and Sarah Palin in the process.
Comments |
Nov 13, 2010 — Alaska's Murkowski-Miller Senate race suggested most Alaskans have good handwriting.  The ability of Sen. Murkowski's supporters to clearly write her name meant more than 90 percent of her ballots went unchallenged. She appeared to be the winner.
Comments |
Nov 12, 2010 — Even as Joe Miller's supporters challenge ballots, Murkowski racks up most of the write in votes.
Comments |
Nov 10, 2010 — The judge said Miller didn't prove he would suffer irreparable harm if the vote count continued. Meanwhile, of the portion of the more than 92,000 ballots counted so far, 89 percent were for Murkowski.
Comments |
Oct 28, 2010 — The decision reversed a lower court which banned lists of the names of write-in candidates from being distributed at polling places. The high court said such lists can be distributed but must not contain the candidates' party affiliation.
Comments |
Oct 27, 2010 — An Alaska judge's ruling was bad news for Lisa Murkowski's write-in candidacy. The judge said state officials hadn't provided similar help in the past and thus couldn't this time either.
Comments |
Oct 6, 2010 — Todd Palin, Sarah's husband, blamed crossed signals for a dustup with Joe Miller who he had initially castigated in an email for not endorsing a 2012 presidential run by his wife. But the email also seemed to suggest Palin plans to run.
Comments |

Comments |
Sep 20, 2010 — Sen. Lisa Murkowski is trying to win another term after having lost the primary in Alaska.  In recent history, only one senator who suffered a primary defeat — Connecticut's Joe Lieberman — managed to keep his seat in November.
Comments |
Sep 20, 2010 — The Tea Party Express and other opponents of Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski may be angry with her, but they aren't expressing the same misgivings about what Delaware's O'Donnell once did.
