    ... unless for some reason the GOP can succeed in getting a court to rule against the inclusion of the ballots that the King County canvassing board deems legal for inclusion.

    •  I don't (none)
      Ballots that failed the "machine recount" in King County as overvotes and undervotes were examined by the Canvassing Board as part of that recount. King is unlikely to produce proportionally as many new valid ballots as other counties which used different systems or were less diligent.

      Note also that almost half the "new" votes in counties completed to date came of one county. This is extremely "lumpy" data, and straight-line projections may be misleading.

    •  WA Supremes? (none)
      I haven't read the transcripts of the oral arguments on Monday, but I believe there was some by-play about the difference between the King County ballots and the sort that the Dems wanted to include.  Did the Republican lawyer state that those KC ballots weren't the subject of the suit?

      If so, I would think that quoting the Republicans' own lawyer during Supreme Court proceedings might carry some weight.

      Even without that, I'm certain that the SoS lawyer made the assertion.
