AK-Sen: Begich +3

I think we're gonna take this seat, because apparently today counted outstanding ballots from less Democratic areas (at least that's what Markos Moulitsas said, and he had data to back it hup).

Berkowitz has not decreased the margin appreciably, though. I guess there won't be a Frozen Chosen in Congress from Alaska :(

as of 3:36 p.m. Alaska Standard Time on November 12, 2008:

Begich + 3

Begich, Mark DEM 125019
Bird, Bob AI 10913
Gianoutsos, Ted NA 1076
Haase, Fred LIB 1961
Stevens, Ted REP 125016

Young +15,710

Berkowitz, Ethan A. DEM 118088
Wright, Don R. AI 11583
Young, Don E. REP 133798

Begich has received about 4,000 more absentee and questioned ballot than has Stevens since the 3+ posting. The state has an estimated 24,000 more ballots left to count in the race, mostly from split district or Democratic strongholds. Begich is 1,022 votes ahead and is almost assuredly the victor.
