Begich Not Giving Up

Via NPR's Martin Kaste, Alaska Democrat Mark Begich says 60,000 uncounted votes and suspicious numbers in at least one precinct are preventing him from conceding the Senate race to incumbent (and recently-convicted felon) Ted Stevens. Stevens, who has held his Senate seat since 1968, currently holds a 4,500-vote advantage in the vote tally. He claims that it's mathematically impossible for Begich to win.

The state's deadline to settle on a result is November 21st.
