Good morning, Netizens…
Hang onto your drawers! Who won the primary?
Well, allowing for the final ballot count which is slated to take place tonight at 6:00 PM according to the Washington State ballot count page http://wei.secstate.wa.gov/spokane/ElectionResults/Pages/ElectionResults.aspx it looks as if Patty Murray is going back to Washington, D.C. and Dino Rossi is heading home again. In my opinion, Chris Marr and Michael Baumgartner are still too close to call for the State Senate, Bonny Mager appears to be re-elected to the County Commissioner’s seat while Al French is falling behind and David Elton won 796 votes. The County Assessor appears to be Ralph Baker, with Vicky Horton a marginally-close second.
Frank Malone may have beaten out Steve Tucker for the County Prosecutor’s seat, which probably wouldn’t hurt some feelings in the blogosphere.
Laurel Siddoway has apparently won a seat on the Court of Appeals, Division 3, District 1 which is another case where certain faces in the blogosphere probably are still on their knees praying to the powers-that-be for an upset.
These are apparently the most-notable candidates in the primary election. Of course, allowing for typographical errors and miscalculations the actual ballot counts could be different.
