Murkowski concedes in Alaska Senate primary
Anchorage Daily News:
Incumbent Lisa Murkowski has conceded to challenger Joe Miller in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate.I think Miller should be the favorite to win in November. He will face Democrat Scott McAdams, the mayor or Sitka. We will have to learn some Alaska geography to follow that race. The GOP caucus will probably be much more conservative in the next Congress.
Speaking to reporters at her campaign headquarters in Anchorage, Murkowski said "based on where we are right now, I don't see a scenario where the primary will turn out in my favor."
The concession come after a day of counting absentee ballots in which Murkowski gained little ground on Miller, the Fairbanks attorney backed by former Gov. Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Express.
