Murkowski appears to have lead in Alaska

(CNN) – Sen. Lisa Murkowski's bid to become only the second person to win a write-in campaign for U.S. Senate appeared on track in Alaska early Wednesday, with write-in candidates leading a Tea Party-backed Republican who beat her in a primary.

But even if the write-ins remained ahead of Republican nominee Joe Miller and Democratic candidate Scott McAdams, the outcome of Alaska's Tuesday general election apparently wouldn't be known for days, because officials need to determine which write-in votes actually went to Murkowski.

Halloween, Alaska style

(CNN) - The witching hour has come early in Alaska, in the form of a Halloween web video by Republican Senate nominee Joe Miller.

Miller won the GOP primary earlier this year against incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski who is now running as an independent write-in candidate.

"My opponent is not a witch, but she sure has conjured up some pretty crazy votes in D.C.," Miller says at the beginning of the ad, a reference to Delaware Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell saying over a decade ago that she "dabbled in witchcraft."
