Begich takes lead in Senate race — by 3 votes

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. If Begich ends up winning the race — that won't be known till next week — Democrats will be within two votes of the 60 votes they need to block filibusters.
