The Governor of Washington is Dino Rossi
Washington Secretary of State Sam Reed has said he will certify the results on Tuesday. Republican Dino Rossi has defeated Democrat Christine Gregoire, according to the recount, by 42 votes. Another recount will cost Gregoire $700,000, but she'd be foolish not to go for it.
Reed, a Republican, said that Gregoire would have until Friday to file for a recount, which he says will begin on December 6 and end around Chrismas. Ho, ho, ho.
Of course, recounts have the potential of being less reliable than the first count, what with the new opportunities for fraud. In 2000, Washington was faced with indecision along with the rest of the nation at the Presidential level; now, they have it again with their State's executive.
