The Alaska Board of Elections is now reporting that Democrat Mark Begich is leading Republican Ted Stevens for the Alaskan Senate seat by 814 votes!! As of Nov. 5, Begich was down by more that 3,000 votes, but has since caught up and surpassed Stevens due to the large number of absentee ballots cast, a majority of which in favor of Begich. AND! it only gets better from here! FiveThirtyEight‘sÂ Sean Quinn writes:
All I can say is, “YAY!! Thank God!!” Now it looks like Sarah Palin can’t sneak her way into the Senate!
