Republicans are SLAUGHTERING THE DEMOCRATS!

Reporting Live From Election Central

By Don Hunter

(Published: November 2, 2004)

9:22 p.m. Lisa Murkowski's lead over Democrat Tony Knowles in their combative race for a U.S. Senate seat is extending. With more than half the state's precincts counted, Murkowski was ahead by about 14,000 votes.

Neither of the major candidates in the high stakes, high bucks campaign had put in an appearance at Election Central, but the forever optimistic Green Party's Jim Sykes supporters managed an abbreviated chant: "I like Sykes, Sykes for Senate."

Sykes himself was hoping mainly to get enough votes to keep his party's place on the ballot for the next statewide election. Currently, that means 3 percent of all the votes cast in a statewide race. The issue is in court, however, and that could change.

"My hope is that Knowles will win the election and I'll get my 3 percent," Sykes said early in the evening.

I will be eating my hat tomorrow. I thought she was roadkill.

She was down 55-45 just last week, wasn't she? What happened?

Lisa Murkowski was endorsed by the NRA. They gave her a super glowing report.

I'm out of the State. Is there any online source I can go to to find updated info on the counts? I didn't see much of anything on adn.com.

Damn, I might have to eat some crow for the guys I blew off when they said we could gain 5 seats this time.
