Alaska Senate: Murkowski Doesn’t Expect Certification This Week

Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) “says it’s unlikely her still-disputed race will be certified this week,” the AP reports.

Murkowski, who’d been hopeful for certification before Christmas, said Tuesday that the longer it takes for a ruling from the Alaska Supreme Court, the less likely it appears that will happen.

The high court heard arguments Friday on Republican Joe Miller’s challenge to the way the state ran the Nov. 2 election.

A federal judge put a hold state certification of the election results in the U.S. Senate race pending resolution of the legal issues Miller raised in the state courts. He has given Miller 48 hours from the time the Supreme Court rules to make his case in a separate federal lawsuit on any outstanding claims, if Miller wishes to do so.

Murkowski has declared victory.

    Can you just imagine what Joe Miller would be saying if the shoe was on the other foot?? Miller you lost get over it. The voters in Alaska said no to you Miller get over it. I’ve got a suggestion why don’t you find Sarah and go have a beer together and commiserate on your collective loss. The voters in Alaska said no Miller — you lost get over it.
