It looks positive for Al Franken, who has a 1,400 vote lead with over 98% of the precincts reporting. If he ends up winning the amazing thing will be that he will have won on the strength of young voters, the only demographic that went his way (51-34), according to exit polling.
Alaska? Really? Ted Stevens leads by 2%, with 81% of the vote in. Unreal. Look out for Sarah Palin to appoint herself or the Todd to the seat if this race doesn’t turn around in the last quarter of the precincts.
Oregon is a lot close than predicted. Gordon Smith has a 3,000 vote lead with 70% of the votes in.
We could sure use these three seats.
