Friday, 17 Sep 2010 05:34 PM

Don’t write off Sen. Lisa Murkowski just yet. Write her in, the Alaska Republican says. Murkowski lost in the primary to Joe Miller last month, but that won’t stop her from running, according to the Anchorage Daily News. Although her campaign manager John Bitney won’t confirm that she’s decided to run, Murkowski backers are urging their brethren to show up for a “campaign kick-off” tonight.

Murkowski, Miller, Alaska, Palin,Bonnie Jack, a Murkowski campaign elections observer, blasted an e-mail this morning, writing, “Join us at the Kick-off of Senator Lisa's campaign — with a theme of ‘write in her name and fill in the oval.’"

And Murkowski’s cousin, Mary Gore, wrote on her Facebook page: “Today is big . . . my cousin will announce at 5:00 today that she will run as a write-in candidate for US Senate. GO LISA GO!”
