During her unsuccessful primary election battle for the Republican nomination, Alaska's Sen. Lisa Murkowski received an endorsement from former Sen. Ted Stevens just days before the Senator passed away. Murkowski went on to lose that battle to tea party favorite Joe Miller, but that hasn't slowed down her re-election campaign as she now fights to maintain her seat as an Independent, and polls show the two candidates in a tight race.
