Democrat Mark Begich leads in early voting in the Alaska Senate race against Republican Dan Sullivan, according to Democratic operative Donna Brazile. Begich has been gaining in recent weeks, as demonstrated by his surprising lead in the latest Hellenthal and Associates poll.
With a four-hour time difference between Alaska time and East Coast time, Alaska could be the last state to have its results come in Tuesday. The race is expected to come down to the wire. Sullivan is riding the momentum of a recent Ted Cruz endorsement rally.

Sullivan needs to catch up and fight for the Polar Bear and win one for the blue and gold in the final hours.
