Joe Miller May Ask for a Recount

Although the AP has called the Alaska Senate race for Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Joe Miller says he may request a recount.

From a press release just sent out by the Miller camp:

Joe Miller said, "After all the absentee ballots are in and we've further reviewed the procedures and the results, we may ask for a recount. Less than 1% of the vote now separates my and Lisa Murkowski's total. If there is a recount and a consistent standard is applied to all the ballots, who knows what the difference would be. We need to uphold the integrity of the vote and we need a consistent standard."
