 The Winner: M-U-R-K-O-W-S-K-I

Incumbent Lisa Murkowski has been declared the winner of Alaska’s senatorial election after a week of ballot counting. She is the first U.S. Senate candidate in over 50 years to win a write-in campaign.

The senator’s opponent, Tea Party idol Joe Miller, tried to turn the election into a spelling bee. He asked the federal court to throw out write-in ballots with slight variations of the senator’s name. The court declined to do so.

The name of the U.S. district court judge who ruled on the spelling issue: Ralph Best Biest Beistline.
