Senate Update: Alaska's Stevens Slowly Losing the Election

In Alaska, the longest-serving Republican senator, convicted felon Ted Stevens, is losing the election to his Democratic opponent, former Anchorage mayor Mark Begich. 

The election website, fivethirtyeight, is reporting that the numbers are increasingly going Begich's way

If that holds, Begich will fill another senate seat for the Democrats and deny Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin a chance to replace Stevens with herself, which, as governor, she could do.
