The Continuing Election Saga of Washington State

Washington State Democrats may have had another ace up their sleeve in

their governor’s race. King County “a

Democratic stronghold,” not only discovered a trove of 700+ uncounted

ballots just in time for the second recount, but produced 3,539

more votes cast than voters.

Democrat Christine Gregoire was certified as the winner December 31 by 128

votes after a hand recount. Republican Dino Rossi won the original count

by 261 votes and the mandatory machine recount by 42. A legal challenge

must be filed by January 22nd.
