Treasurer write-in candidate likely will earn place on ballot

Looks like Spokane County Treasurer Skip Chilberg may end up with a challenger in the general election after all.

Real estate agent Rob Chase, who ran for Congress as a Libertarian in 2002, had 1.21 percent of the vote as a write-in candidate for treasurer after Tuesday's ballot count. If he holds on to at least 1 percent, his name will appear on the November ballot.

Chase is running as a Republican.
