  •  I thought Pierce was mostly in & that the (0+ / 0-)

    bulk of the absentees are King (good for us)...& that we are talking more than 100,000 remaining? Is my info stale? (In UK here, not easy to stay 'on top') This is my district, have to take it personally!

      WA-08: ELECTION NIGHT REVIEW

      We are down slightly as of midnight Election Day, but this is expected because the current vote includes a disproportionate number of Pierce County votes (our least favorable area).

      We are outperforming Dave Ross (2004's Democratic nominee) in both Pierce and King Counties.

      There are upwards of 150,000 ballots left to count. The lion's share of those votes are King County absentees.

      WA-08: GOING FORWARD

      We still believe this will be a very, very close election.

      We remain cautiously optimistic given that the remaining absentees favor Darcy.

      It is likely we will have to wait until Friday or next week for a clearer sense of the outcome.

      We will work to make sure every valid vote is counted.

      Latest results:
      Reichert, 77,597 (50.9%)
      Burner, 74,861 (49.1%)

      CNN says 59% of precincts reporting; I don't see any such detail on the Washington SoS web site. The race has narrowed by a few hundred votes, as best I can tell/remember, during the day today.
