Alaska and Minnesota Quick Updates
Begich has a little over 3,000 votes to make up.... we'll see if he can do it. Tossup.
In Minnesota, the recanvassing is done. Coleman holds a 206 vote lead out of nearly 3 million votes cast. A mandatory manual recount will commence shortly and will be completed sometime by the middle of December. The undervotes of past presidential (a vote for president but not for senate on a given ballot) is around 25,000 with undervotes including presidential (undervote of both presidential and senate) is around 2,500. The large majority of these votes are in Franken counties... which makes sense considering that undervotes meant to be a vote would be cast by the elderly, low educated, and first time voters.
I consider Franken a favorite.
