As of early this morning, Democrat Mike Begich has taken a 814-vote lead over Ted Stevens in Alaska. Since votes have been swinging inexorably toward Begich ever since they started counting absentee ballots, I assume this means he will win the seat.
It’s looking increasingly plausible that the Dems may achieve a 60-vote majority in the Senate and, as of January, control every lever of power in Washington. It will be interesting to see what they do with such unfettered power.
