New Mega millionaire intro at 2 p.m.

OLYMPIA -- The owner of one of two winning tickets in the Mega Million lottery drawing will be introduced to the public at 2 p.m. today, the Washington Lottery office says.

Before taxes, the ticket is worth about $190 million.

The name of the winner hasn't been released, but the ticket was sold in Ephrata, and the ticket holder made the trip over this morning for the ceremonial presentation of an oversized check.

Gov. Chris Gregoire joked at this morning's press conference that after meeting the winner at lunch, she'll ask for a loan for the state.
