ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – In Alaska, Democrat Mark Begich has taken a 3-vote lead in his effort to topple 40-year Republican Sen. Ted Stevens.

Begich, the two-term mayor of Anchorage, started the day down more than 3,200 votes. But he closed the gap as officials resumed counting early and absentee ballots: 125,019 to 125,016.
