Murkowski isn't listed in state election guide

October 20, 2010 

JUNEAU -- Voters looking for information about Sen. Lisa Murkowski in Alaska's election guide won't find it.

Murkowski filed paperwork to run as a write-in candidate last week. Her campaign says state law doesn't allow for write-in candidates who file after the July publication copy deadline to be included in the guide, which is mailed to households statewide.

Murkowski says that while she's disappointed in not being included, there are other ways for Alaskans to learn about her positions, including on her campaign and Senate websites.

She faces Joe Miller, who upset her in the GOP primary, and Democrat Scott McAdams in the November election.
