Alaska goes a little blue!

Mudflats is thrilled – so I’m thrilled. Got to be some smart people living up there – doesn’t hurt to get another Democrat in the Senate – and it does end the speculation that Stevens would win, be thrown out of the Senate, and then Palin would run. 😉

Well, the final tally today had Mark Begich leading convicTed Stevens by 3724 votes. It’s a happy happy day on the Mudflats!

Mark Begich has officially won the Senate seat. Alaskans have done something right.

That means that my red red state isn’t so red anymore. We have just elected a Democrat to the U.S. Senate for the first time in 30 years! OK, I know….it took running against a seven time convicted felon to do it, and it was still really really close… but nobody better snow on my parade!
