Senate Seat Updates

Well, it’s still close all around.

With 99% of precincts reporting, Ted Stevens leads the Democrat by a little over 3,000 votes (48-47) in Alaska.

It’s unknown whether Saxby Chambliss will have a runoff in Georgia (he leads the Democrat there right now 50-46), but the GA GOP chair thinks that there will be a runoff.

In Minnesota, Coleman leads Franken by about 600 votes; Franken’s people are likely to ask for a recount, to which their are entitled by law.

With 75% of the precincts in in Oregon, Gordon Smith leads the Democrat Jeff Merkley 48-46.

If all these races go the GOP’s way, we could be looking at 44 Republicans in the Senate.
