Joe Miller is asking for cash with an ominous sounding fundraising email, warning his supporters that a "recount is imminent" in his Alaska Republican primary bid to unseat Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

The race won't be decided for weeks, and while Murkowski waits, her campaign brought in a lawyer who might be used to request a recount. Miller leads by 1,668 votes and TPM sources in Alaska expect him to prevail.

Miller exploits that fact in this email, asking supporters to donate and "don't wait until it's too late."

Also interesting to note, the Miller email mentions Mike Huckabee but not Sarah Palin. Both Republicans endorsed him over the incumbent.

Here's the email in full:

Thank You For Continuing to Support Joe
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee calls it the "Continental Army versus the British."Joe Miller's race against Lisa Murkowski will be 2010's biggest upset for the Obama Administration's trusted swing vote.

Alaskans are defining America's course for the future; with 100% of precincts reporting, Miller leads Murkowski 50.9% to49.1% for a total lead of 1,668 votes.

But as Murkowski said, "it ain't over yet, folks." Thousands of absentee voter ballots were sent out by the Division of Elections and those votes will not be fully tallied until September 8th.

A recount is imminent and Joe Miller URGENTLY needs your help so Alaskans can have a Constitutional conservative voice in Washington D.C.

You made this possible, now Joe is counting on YOU to help bring him the rest of the way. He needs your donation right now.

Donate

It's time to make a difference and stand up with Joe for our country.

Please DONATE. Don't wait until it's too late.

ObamaCare would not have been passed if we'd had one more conservative in Washington. Let's stop cap-and-trade in its tracks; let's repeal ObamaCare; let's prevent future bailouts and support Joe Miller now when he needs it most!

Alaska has a small population base and because of this each dollar goes a long way. Your gift of $2400, $2000, $1500, $1000, $500, $250, $100, $50, or even $25 will make the difference between Obama's agenda or a Constitutional voice that speaks for you. Thank you.

Sarah Palin can't catch a break, can she ? She endorses Branstad and Haley, who will most certainly back Romney, and she endorses Miller, who by all accounts will most certainly back Huckabee.

I almost feal sorry for her. Almost.

We defiantly need to help Miller out. He will have to get at least 43% of the absentee ballots to stay ahead.

Hotair linked to this link for updates on the absentee ballot counting:

1:45 pm
Votes from South Anchorage just helped Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski narrow Joe Miller’s lead to 1,294 votes with about half of today’s count of absentee and questioned ballots done.

Miller started off the day with a 1,668 vote lead.

Update, 12:20 p.m.:

Joe Miller's lead over Lisa Murkowski just grew slighly with absentee and questioned ballots from the Mat-Su.

Miller now leads Mukowski by 1,460 votes.

Wish we could know what percentage of the total absentee votes have been counted so far. I feel fairly confident Miller will prevail, but you just never know.

Update, 5:09 p.m.:

It's looking bad for Lisa Murkowski.

The latest count of absentees increased Miller's lead to 1,469 votes. That's about 200 more votes for him than the last count. Fairbanks probably helped Miller, although the votes were also from Southeast and the Kenai Peninsula.

The Murkowski campaign was really counting on a big boost from Southeast.

That didn't happen. The latest batch was a count of 2,760 votes. It brings the total counted today to about 15,700 votes. Still awaiting some more Kenai absentee votes and that will be all that is counted today.

Murkowski campaign: We could know tonight

Posted: August 31st, 2010 07:26 PM ET

From CNN Political Producer Shannon Travis
Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski is currently trailing political newcomer Joe Miller in the race for the Alaska GOP Senate nomination.
Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski is currently trailing political newcomer Joe Miller in the race for the Alaska GOP Senate nomination.

Anchorage, Alaska (CNN) – Sen. Lisa Murkowski could concede the GOP Senate primary as early as Tuesday night after election officials in Alaska finish counting the day's absentee ballots.

In an interview with CNN, Murkowski campaign spokesman Steve Wackowski was emphatic that the vote could still swing their way. "We're being hopeful, we want to make sure that all the votes are counted," he said.

But Wackowski also addressed the harsh reality that Murkowski might fall to the once lesser known, Tea Party Express-endorsed Joe Miller.

"I think we should know ... by our calculus, we should know by tonight," Wackowski said.

Just saw this at hotair.com

Update: From Swing State Project:

9:41pm: Murkowski will hold a press conference in twenty minutes.
9:40pm: Being generous, let’s say there are 7000 valid GOP votes left to be counted. Murkowski would need 61% of them to win. She’s done.

Concession time?
