Ted Stevens' career ends in disgrace
Corrupt Republican senator Ted Stevens has been defeated by Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich in a close senatorial race in Alaska.
Stevens, still under investigation for corruption and taking bribes in the seafood industry, lost the election by over 3,700 votes.
With 100 percent of Alaska's precincts reporting, Begich, the mayor of Anchorage, had roughly 48 percent of the vote, compared with about 47 percent for Stevens, according to CNN's latest tally.
Ted Stevens was convicted of 7 felonies in October for filing false statements on his Senate financial disclosure forms.
