Ted Stevens Cruises

The Anchorage Daily News reports today that embattled Senator Ted Stevens (R-AK) cleaned up in yesterday's primary with 63 percent of the vote, easily defeating six challengers. Stevens was indicted on federal felony charges last month for failing to disclose more than $250,000 in gifts from the an oil field services company. He's pleaded not guilty. But his tangle with the law clearly didn't phase many voters. After his victory, Stevens told the AP the November election would be a "piece of cake". He'll now face off against Anchorage Mayor and Democrat Mark Begich, who captured 84 percent of the vote in his primary race. Check out NPR's Election Map for more info on this race.
