Murkowski Takes The Lead

Turning now to our race for US Senate. Incumbent Lisa Murkowski has taken the lead.

The latest update from the Division of Elections shows mMurkowski ahead of fellow Republican Kelly Tshibaka. Democrat Pat Chesbro’s numbers have also bumped up a bit as absentee and military ballots continue to come in.

The state is expected to announce final first choice results on Wednesday, but this race will end up going into the second round.
