(CNN) – Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska Wednesday declared victory over fellow Republican Joe Miller in the nation's last Senate race, saying the result of her write-in candidacy was a "miracle." "Against all odds, we as Alaskans together made history," Murkowski told cheering supporters in Anchorage. If she prevails in a potential challenge, Murkowski would become the second person to ever win a write-in bid for the U.S. Senate. Murkowski's statement was the climax in the state's bitter and prolonged Senate battle.
This morning, Murkowski speaks to American Morning. She explains why she's claiming victory and gives her opinion on Sarah Palin.
