It could be history in the making, as a write-in senate race gets closer to a winner.

Senator Lisa Murkowski has increased her lead to more than 10,000 votes over Joe Miller in the Alaska senate race. She waged a write-in campaign after losing the Republican primary to Miller in August.

Election officials added a big batch of absentee ballots Monday and Tuesday. Around 600 more ballots from overseas and the military could show up by the Wednesday deadline. Those need to be counted, but Murkowski may still be able to declare victory Wednesday afternoon.

Miller says that if the math doesn't work in his favor, he won't fight it. Murkowski's campaign manager says he hopes Miller keeps his word.
