Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R) will not be on the AK Libertarian Party ballot line this fall

When all the absentee votes are counted, if Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R- AK) still trails the GOP challenger, Joe Miller, who is ahead as of election night, the talk of Murkowski going on to run as a Libertarian has been halted.

The Executive Committee of the Alaska Libertarian Party held an emergency meeting to discuss the issue and voted to keep her off the ballot.

It was just chatter, no official moves had been made by Murkowski towards the Libertarian Party, but the blogosphere was ripe with gossip, to which these latest news reports should end.

If Miller should come out the winner after all the votes have been counted, then Murkowski should step up and offer unconditional support to the peoples choice and back him and encourage her supporters to do the same.
