The Stevens/Begich race, however, isn't quite there yet:
Stevens, 84 and a 40-year incumbent, led his Democratic challenger, Mayor Mark Begich of Anchorage, by fewer than 3,400 votes, with more than 55,000 absentee, early and questioned ballots remaining to be counted. If he wins, Stevens would be the first felon elected to the U.S. Senate.(San Jose Mercury News, 11/05/08)
Even if Stevens wins, he could still be forced from office.
Many top Republican leaders in the Senate have called on him to resign, and some Senate leaders have threatened to expel him.
