Eye On Olympia

Razor-thin House races…

Yeah, all eyes are on the mighty-close Virginia race for U.S. Senate at this point. But look at some of the numbers we're seeing for seats in Washington's statehouse:

In the 39th legislative district (which includes parts of King-, Skagit-, Snohomish- and Whatcom counties, Democrat Scott Olson is only 19 votes behind Republican Dan Kristiansen as I type this.

In the 10th (Island County and parts of Skagit and Snohomish counties), Rep. Barbara Bailey, R-Oak Harbor, is holding on by just 5 votes over challenger Tim Knue.

Short takes and breaking news from the Washington Legislature and the state capital.
