Tester: 'We feel good about winning this election'
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- John Tester, the Democratic candidate challenging incumbent Montana GOP Sen. Conrad Burns, is claiming victory and said the vote tally is in his favor.
"We feel good about winning this election, we feel good about going to Washington, DC and making change for this country," Tester told CNN Wednesday.
With 99 percent of Montana precincts reporting, Tester holds a lead of just over three thousand votes.
