Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski may have lost her primary to Joe Miller and his Tea Party friends, but she's not giving up yet. It's being reported that tonight she'll kick off a new campaign as a write-in candidate. In other words, she won't be on the ballot; people will have to summon the motivation to literally write her full name down on a piece of paper. Because this is a lot to ask of people, the last and only senator to win this way was Strom Thurmond in 1954. [First Read/MSNBC]
