ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The number of write-in candidates for Alaska's U.S. Senate seat has swelled to about 150 amid an effort by conservatives to target the write-in candidacy of GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

The number by Thursday's write-in deadline had grown from just a handful earlier this week.

Murkowski mounted her bid after losing the primary to tea-party backed Joe Miller, and some conservatives have urged Alaskans to make their own write-in runs

Those conservatives include Dan Riehl, who issued a call on Andrew Breitbart's Big Government website to "highlight the chaos brought about by Lisa Murkowski's seemingly unending quest for power" with her campaign.

It's not immediately clear how many of those running did so because of the effort, though the write-in list includes people who've openly supported Miller.
