“Alaska Senator Ted Stevens loses his re-election bid”

This is my favorite part:

Stevens’ loss was another slap for Republicans in a year that has seen the party lose control of the White House, as well as seats in the House and Senate. It also moves Democrats one step closer to the 60 votes needed to overcome filibusters in the Senate. Democrats now hold 58 seats, when two independents who align with Democrats are included, with undecided races in Minnesota and Georgia where two Republicans are trying to hang onto their seats.

Democrats have now picked up seven Senate seats in the Nov. 4 election.

It’s up to you Al Franken and James Martin. Win those close seats and get closer to filibuster proof majority. Well, they really don’t have anything to do with what happens from this point forward, but good luck in the recounts I guess.
