The Governor of Washington will Be…
Who the heck knows? They're still in the midst of an eternal vote-counting effort.
As I type, it reads:
State Attorney General Christine Gregoire (D) - 1,360,871 (48.8815%)
State Senator Dino Rossi (R) – 1,360,713 (48.8758%)
"Pony Express results in an Internet era," bemoaned the Spokane Spokesman-Review.
Check their Secretary of State's web site for the latest count.
This should help put some of those worried about King County at ease. A little. Maybe.
Right now Rossi, taking the trends in each county into consideration, is going to win by 1,036 despite leading by a mere 304. This is all mathematical projection, but take a look.
I've got an Excel spreadsheet designed by my brother that tracks all counted votes, results by county, and ballots outstanding to project the winner. It updates every 10 minutes.
