On to the governor’s race

With John McCain's concession speech, the presidential election watch is essentially over for us. Feel free to keep up on the Electoral College count on the Web sites posted earlier on the blog.

We'll be tracking the governor's race from here on out.

Chris Gregoire currently leads, with about 50.5 percent of the vote, or 304,900 votes.
Dino Rossi has 49.5, or 299,337 votes.

Of note: Rossi's leading in all Eastern Washington counties except Spokane, where Gregoire has a narrow lead. Neither King nor Pierce County has reported yet.
