"This race is far from over," Miller told ABC News.
Miller also said he received a $20,000 contribution for his legal fight from the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which endorsed him after he beat Murkowski in the GOP primary. Sarah Palin's PAC also sent a donation, he said.
Meanwhile, the Anchorage Daily News reported that the ongoing count seems to favor Murkowski, with the incumbent "receiving nearly 98 percent of the write-in ballots cast." By Thursday afternoon, elections officials had reviewed write-in ballots for 32 percent of the precincts.
Miller, a little-known conservative lawyer who went on to get the coveted Palin endorsement, shook up Alaska politics when he defeated Murkowski in the GOP primary. He appeared headed for the Senate until Murkowski decided to stage a write-in campaign. On election night, the number of write-in votes exceeded the number that Miller received by about 41 to 34 percent. Democrat Scott McAdams came in third with 25 percent of the vote.
