Alaska's Senate race: Miller pushes on with legal fight

Alaska Dispatch: "Miller, who ran in the Senate race on the GOP ticket, is challenging write-in candidate Lisa Murkowski's apparent victory. The state has awarded Murkowski 101,088 votes -- more than 10,000 compared to the 90,740 votes that went to Miller. Miller has challenged 8,159 of Murkowski's votes, but even with that group tossed out, she remains 2,189 votes ahead of him, or 1.19 percent of the total votes cast between them. He'd need to shave that gap to a little more than 900 -- or .5 percent of the total votes cast for the two candidates -- in order to force the state to pay for a recount. Otherwise, if he requests a recount, Miller will need to foot the bill."
