Murkowski thinks she still has a chance in Alaska's Senate GOP primary against Joe Miller, who was endorsed by Sarah Palin. Sixty percent of the 2000 absentee ballots would have to be counted in Murkowski's favor in order for her to win. Given that Miller relied heavily on in-state advertising and endorsements, its possible that those individuals who mailed in their ballots were shielded from those ads.... but it's just as possible that Murkowski misses the 60% cutoff by a hair.
