Joe Miller's lead over Lisa Murkowski just grew slighly with absentee and questioned ballots from the Mat-Su.
Miller now leads Mukowski by 1,460 votes.
The Division of Elections reported counting 2,895 votes from Legislative Districts 13 through 16 in the Mat-Su.
If I’m thinking about this correctly (and I may not be), they have now counted 5,286 of the previously outstanding Republican ballots. If there are roughly 16,000 total ballots and about two thirds of them are Republican which seems to be the case thus far, then about half of the outstanding ballots have been counted and Murkowski has only picked-up 208 votes. With Mat-Su out of the way, it will likely get closer, but I can’t see how she overtakes Miller at this point.
That makes a total of 5,286 ballots that have been counted and reported so far today.
