Lisa Murkowski’s Write-in Campaign Off to Worst Possible Start


If you’re a write-in candidate — such as Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski, for example — whose slim hopes of victory rest on stupid, lazy voters remembering your name on Election Day because it won’t appear on the ballot, it’s probably best to spell your name correctly in your own ads. No worries, though — voters will reportedly be given considerable leeway to spell Murkowski however they want. [Ben Smith/Politico]
