Stevens loses Alaska's senate seat

Strib reports Alaskan senator Ted Steven's conceded defeat Wednesday.
He was convicted of a felony earlier this year for trying to hide gifts he had recieved while in office from oil execs.
Democrat Mark Begich won by a little more than 3,700 votes out of over 315,000 votes cast.
Stevens was running for his seventh term as senator, he was the longest serving senator in office.
Begich says he is different than New York Democrats, he is pro-guns, pro-drilling ANWAR, and pro-less government.
