Eye On Olympia

Closing arguments this p.m….

After two weeks, thousand of documents and several dueling professors, the battle in Wenatchee will draw to a close this afternoon.

Republicans will end with arguments that considering the slim 129-vote victory (out of 2.8 million votes) by Democratic Gov. Gregoire, errors so muddied the water that the judge should declare Gregoire’s victory void. Republicans want a new election.

Democrats will argue that, well, stuff happens, and that Republicans haven’t come anywhere close to the standard Judge John Bridges has called for: proof that the errors wrongly propelled Gregoire to her narrow victory.

The ruling will come Monday.
