Alaska Senate

Joe Miller Sues for Recount

Joe Miller will not go quietly into the night: The Alaska Republican Senate candidate is suing the state for a recount, alleging that it counted too many votes for write-in victor Lisa Murkowski. Miller is suing even though Murkowksi leads by 10,000 votes—and would still lead by 2,100 votes if Miller’s ballot challenges were all successful. Miller alleges too many votes were counted for Murkowski, the state failed to count votes for him, and some voters were allowed to cast a ballot without identification.
