Latest vote count still favors Wiggins

Voters in King County have helped Charlie Wiggins hang onto the lead in his bid to oust incumbent Justice Richard Sanders.

Wiggins had a lead of more than 4,477 votes following the vote count update Wednesday from nearly half of the state’s 39 counties, including vote-rich King. Wiggins holds a 50.1 percent vote advantage over Sanders’ 49.9 percent.

Sanders, who is seeking his fourth term, led on election night.

There are still approximately 122,000 ballots left to tally in the coming days, but many of the votes that remain to be counted are in King County.

Several counties will update their results again Friday.
