Stevens loses Alaska Senate seat to Democrat
updated 9 minutes ago
WASHINGTON - Convicted Sen. Ted Stevens lost his re-election bid to Democrat Mark Begich on Tuesday after the last large batch of votes was counted.
The longest-serving Republican in the history of the Senate trailed Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich by 3,724 votes after Tuesday's count of about 24,000 absentee and contested ballots.
That's an insurmountable lead with only about 2,500 overseas ballots left to be counted.
Rest of article at link above.
This is a positive for so many reasons.
1. Stevens is a felon.
2. Stevens has been a GOP thorn in the side of progress.
3. This nails shut any chance for Caribou Barbie to slide into the Senate.
4. Crooked #($* didn't win out this time.
