Mark Begich's lead over Senator Ted Stevens is now 3,724. That is a difference of 1.18% which would give Begich the seat outright. Automatic recount would only be triggered by a margin of less than .5%.
No more Ted Stevens for us! We'll have to make do with Sen. Toobz greatest hit:
UPDATE: The Anchorage Daily News has called the race for Begich, as only 2,500 votes remain to be counted.
Congratulations to Senator Mark Begich!
