The last counting of absentee ballots has Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) down to a 971 vote margin
over Mark Begich. The vote counters got through about half the absentee and questioned ballots today; and it took Stevens' margin from over 3k to just under 1k. More counting tomorrow.
Thanks to TPM Reader SP
for the tip. Late WTF Update
: TPM Reader sends word that LS
sends on word that Begich is now ahead by 3 votes. And she sends along the the link to the state of Alaska elections site that appears to confirm
this. No Question About it Update
: Yep, the ADN confirms
it. Begich by three votes. How Cow Update
: Man, you guys are on this like friggin' hawks. LS
got to the send button first. But if our inbox is any indicator a lot of TPMers are all over this.
