Don't count us crazy yet! - UPDATED!

Begich (D) is now leading (convicted felon) Stevens (R) by THREE votes!

Per the Anchorage Daily News:

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.
