Gubernatorial races in Maryland and Alaska that had been hung up on absentee ballot counts arelikely Democratic victories. In Maryland, where the GOP is outnumbered two-to-one, Democrat Parris Glendening apparently beat Republican Ellen Sauerbrey by 5,405 votes with all but about 500 overseas votes tallied. (His lieutenant governor will be Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, the late Robert Kennedy's oldest daughter.) In Alaska, Democrat Tony Knowles led Republican Jim Campbell by just 77 votes -- an edge so thin state officials may demand a recount. But 1994's Squeaker of the Year may go to a Connecticut House race, in which Democratic Rep. Sam Gejdenson was declared the winner today by just four votes.Post your opinion on theElection '94bulletin board.
