Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski has begun a drawn-out battle for every ballot with her handwritten name on it.
She's hoping to come back from a primary defeat that forced Alaskans to choose between Sarah Palin's tea party and the state's Republican establishment.
Meanwhile, the overseer of Alaska's elections told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the counting of write-in ballots will begin Nov. 10, with the hope of having a clear winner by late next week.
With 99 percent of precincts reporting Wednesday morning, write-in votes represented 41 percent of the vote. Republican nominee Joe Miller had 34 percent; Democrat Scott McAdams, who all but conceded Tuesday night, had 24 percent.
While Murkowski celebrated the fact she was still in the race, it remained to be seen whether the write-in votes would keep her in office.
