A 3 vote difference with 10,000 votes left to process. . .but hey, if it keeps Sarah Palin from the Senate. . .
This is the latest in this nail-biter Senate race:
The elections division still has over 10,000 ballots left to count today and thousands more through next week, but the latest numbers show Mark Begich leading Sen. Ted Stevens 125,019 to 125,016.
— Steve Clemons
Update: There are actually 47,000 votes left to count. 10,000 of those will be left to count tonight — leaving a balance of 37,000 that need to be counted before November 19th.
