Undecided Races

November 13, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
For most Americans, Election Day has come and gone. However, one state has yet to declare a winner in the Presidential election and three Senate races are up in the air.Minnesota officials are manually recounting the ballots to decide the race between incumbent Senator Norm Coleman and challenger, comedian Al Franken. Coleman leads by 206 votes.

The race has been plagued by accusations of improprieties on the part of poll workers and partisanship which the secretary of state denies. Mark Ritchie, MN Secretary of State, says "The people of Minnesota and I feel that same way about when I took the oath of office and walked through the door, I became a servant of the people of Minnesota."

Georgia's incumbent Senator Saxby Chambliss and challenger Jim Martin will participate in a December un-off since neither candidate received at least 50 percent of the vote.

John McCain hits the campaign trail Thursday to help his senate colleague. Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich has taken the lead over incumbent Senator and convicted felon Ted Stevens by 814 votes.

Officials continue to count early and absentee ballots.

Finally, in Missouri, some 6-thousand provisional ballots are still being counted in the presidential race.

McCain leads Barack Obama by nearly 5-thousand votes.

There are still a few House races yet to be decided, although last night, the associated press declared Alaska Republican Don Young the winner in his election.
