Los Angeles Times:
Murkowski, who is on vacation, has scheduled a swearing-in reception for Wednesday in Washington, according to her website.
“It feels great to have finality and for Sen. Murkowski to officially be declared the winner of the election,” Kevin Sweeney, Murkowski’s campaign manager, said in a statement. “We spent six weeks running a campaign, and it took eight weeks to get the final result. While the long wait may make it anticlimactic, it does not diminish the historic accomplishment of our campaign.”
