FAIRBANKS — Sen. Lisa Murkowski held an overdue victory celebration in Fairbanks.
Murkowski joined about 100 people Saturday who arrived at the Carlson Center to congratulate her on her write-in victory. No candidate for U.S. Senate had pulled off a write-in win since 1954.
Murkowski told the crowd that her visits around the state this month were a way to thank her supporters. She says people took off their political labels in providing the diverse support she needed to defeat Republican nominee Joe Miller and Democrat Scott McAdams.
