NO DOUBT WHO WON, BUT THE COUNT GOES ON

Nearly two weeks after John F. Kerry conceded the election and President Bush laid out his agenda, New Mexico is among several states that have yet to determine the winner's margin of victory.

Bush was declared the state's winner by the Associated Press and maintained a 6,061-vote lead Friday as most counties finished counting provisional ballots, according to an unofficial AP tally.

The state canvassing board will not certify the results until Nov. 23, after the uncounted votes are compiled, but officials said Kerry stood no chance of winning the state.

Several states, including the pivotal state of Ohio, continue to count provisional ballots, but the outcome of the presidential race is not considered in doubt in any state. The Washington governor's race remains undecided as provisional ballots are counted there.
