A write in campaign targeting a nominee on the ballot is a VERY difficult way to achieve victory. If Alaskan voters support Joe Miller with only normal enthusiasm, Senator Murkowski will be no threat.

However, if Alaskans view Miller's triumph as the result of out of state carpetbaggers coming into their state to run mud slinging ads and affect the outcome of their primary, the might resent it. And if enough Alaskans are angry, they might write in Murkowski on November 2.

Joe Miller won the Republican nomination. Nobody has yet won the Senate seat. The voters decide that November 2. Mr Miller won his primary with 55,878 votes in a state with an estimated population of 663,000 (in 2005). Senator Murkowski might discern the Republican nominee's support, not even 10% of the population, is tissue thin and she sees an opening for herself.

How do Alaskans feel about the teabagger insurgency? Stay tuned! Murkowski faces a daunting, long shot path to reelection, but there's no quit in the lady. Isn't that an admirable quality?
