It's over: Stevens concedes to Begich in Alaska Senate race

Sen. Ted Stevens conceded the election for U.S. Senate to Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich Wednesday, bringing to an end his 40 years as the dominant force in Alaska politics. The concession seems to remove any possibility of Stevens' asking for a recount; 3,724 votes separate the two men, one 1 percent of the total vote.
