Begich Leading by 1,022

With about 24,000 votes yet to be counted, Democratic challenger Mark Begich leads Stevens Republican incumbent by 1,022 votes.

A vote to outs the convicted Senator Ted Stevens has been postponed as Alaska awaits the results of the election.

“After talking with many of my colleagues, it’s clear there are sufficient votes to pass the resolution regarding Senator Stevens,” DeMint said.

“The question now is timing. Some who support the resolution believe we should address this after the results of his election are confirmed in Alaska. For this reason, I will ask the conference to postpone the vote on Senator Stevens until Thursday,” DeMint said.

Stevens faces up to 35 years in prison.
