Today the lead on the Alaska Senate race has spread to an 814 vote lead for Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich over incumbent Ted Stevens.
But maybe the coolest story of the election year was reported last night.
After 41,000 absentee and early votes were counted yesterday Begich took the lead over Stevens through the first 250,000 votes.
That lead,, was 3 votes!!
Not 300, 3000, but 3 votes.
We often think that our votes don't matter, but for one news cycle, until the 814 vote spread hit this morning,, we saw how much our votes really do count.
