Dems likely to keep majorities in Washington legislature

By The Spokesman-Review
 

Democrats will hold a three-seat majority in the state Senate and an eight-seat majority in the state House if current trends in election results hold.

That’s a fairly big if, considering several of the races are within a couple percentage points and subject to change. One, Snohomish County’s 44th, has Democrat Steve Hobbs leading Republican Dave Schmidt by just eight votes.

Spokane County doesn’t plan to release more election results until 5 p.m. today.
