Democrat Mark Begich appears headed to victory over Republican Sen. Ted Stevens in Alaska’s U.S. Senate race.

The Anchorage mayor widened his lead to 3,724 votes in Tuesday’s counting of absentee and questioned ballots.

The only votes left to count are approximately 2,500 special absentees from people living outside the U.S. or in remote parts of Alaska with no polling place.
