Murkowski appears to have won write-in Senate bid in Alaska

She promised to make history, and Wednesday afternoon, it appeared that Sen. Lisa Murkowski had done just that. Murkowski, who launched a high-profile write-in bid to represent Alaska in the U.S. Senate after losing the Republican primary to Joe Miller in August, appears to be the first write-in candidate to go to the Senate since Strom Thurmond's 1954 victory.
